Welcome to Spetsathlon 2018, a rich and diverse sporting event featuring a number of happenings and sports activities for runners and other athletes, in a beautiful route along the periphery of the island.
Participating in Spetsathlon 2018 is a great opportunity to enjoy a unique running course of natural beauty, a route by the sea and through the pine trees, passing by historical landmarks. Let alone that the weather in Spetses is ideal for a running eve.
What is Spetsathlon
Triathlon: running, swimming, cycling
Triathlon: sprint & endurance running, swimming, cycling
1. Triathlon race, 2 courses:
Spetses Triathlon Sprint (750m swim, 25km bike and 5km run)
Spetses Triathlon Endurance (1500m swim, 50km bike and 10km run)
2. The Bike Race (25 km) – Spetses Island Round
The participation includes the following benefits
– Participation certificate
– Commemorative medal for participation
– Commemorative T-shirt
– Race bag
– Pasta Party
In any case all runners participate solely at their own risk. The organisers have no responsibility for whatever happens to the runners related to health issues or owing to lack of a preventive medical check. It is highly recommended that the participants undergo a thorough medical examination before entering the race. The organisers will not ask for medical certificates from any athlete (male and female), since they all participate at their own exclusive risk and responsibility (parents or guardians have liability for their children). We will also provide offers for special health check-up for all runners, and members of their families.
Along the running route, there will be stations to support the runners. At the start and finish stations and at the runners’ support stations bottled water and sports drinks will be available to all attendees.
The first three winners of the general classification Men and Women will be awarded a medal and a diploma. To all the runners who finish the race a commemorative medal and a diploma of participation will be given.
The age categories for men and women, in both triathlon and bike race, will be the following: 19-29 / 30-39 / 40-49 / 50-59 / 60-69 / 70 +
Triathlon Race athletes must
– Be over 18 years of age
– Submit a medical report by a GP or Cardiologist (issued 6 months before the event at the very most)
– Wear a helmet during the cycling race.
– Wear a cap during the swimming race.
*Participation will not be allowed if the documents requested are not submitted!
All participants will be timed by a timing company using an electronic timing system. For this reason, the runners must wear the timing chip they will receive from the registration centre along with the participation number. Attention: Your time will not be registered and will not be included in the results if you do not have the timing chip attached to your shoe and if you fail to pass over the timing mats.
Even though the streets of Spetses are of good quality for the first two to three kilometres after the start line, there are some problematic spots when cycling through the old part of the city. Thus, it is proposed to use road bikes instead of time trial bikes.
