Lisbon Triathlon

The final event is a 21.1km run which, again, is on a flat surface taking in the scenic route alongside the river Tagus, the longest river on the Iberian Peninsula.

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and the largest, and one of the wealthiest, cities in Europe. It plays host to The National Azulejo Museum - Azulejo is Portuguese for ceramic tile, something Portugal is famous for. The museum is housed in a former convent and enlightens the visitor on the history of tiles, supported by magnificent paintings all embellished with gold frames.

The Triathlon is the ultimate stamina test for the body and the Lisboa Triathlon is no exception. It will take place in 2009 on 25 April with approximately one thousand participants all keen to stretch their bodies to its limits.

The event starts with a 1.9km swim around an artificial lake created originally for Expo 98. Participants will swim twice around the lake which has an all round pier, excellent for the crowds to cheer on their favourite competitor. It's also useful for the TV crews to obtain the best all round shots.

The cycle ride is held on a fast and flat freeway and runs for 90km. All traffic will be stopped on the day so only other participants to get in the winner's way!
