The Triathlon Sprint and Aquathlon Championship of Andalucía took place over the weekend of the 6th and 7th September, again consisting of two well established competitions; The XX Pulpí Triathlon and the IV Pulpí Aquathlon.
The competition, which is the most important in the calendar of the Andalucian triathlon Federation, was held on the Playa de los Nardos area in the town of San Juan de los Terreros. The chosen scene for the competitions was the new coastal park which forms part of the "Mar de Pulpí Pueblo Mediterraneo" beachfront urbanization developed and constructed by TM Real Estate Group, who were also the events main sponsor.
During many years, the municipality of Pulpí, and more specifically San Juan de los Terreros, has been a place of reference for holding this highly prized event in which approximately 600 participants were joined by fans, coaches and managers. This year was even more hotly anticipated with the inauguration of the much requested facilities that TM Real Estate Group had made available to the Andalucian Federation for the race. These facilities include, as well as the afore-mentioned coastal park, a 2.3km running track, fitness rooms with conference facilities, and a sports centre with the possibility to hire equipment for mountain and aquatic activities.
