Garmin Barcelona Triathlon 2013
You turn the page of your book and take a sip of your drink; you can’t believe just how warm it is still in Barcelona in October. You notice a large crowd a little way away. As you sit up you can see hundreds of neoprene clad and athletic looking swimmers run into the water with much cheering and splashing.
This is the first leg of the Garmin Barcelona triathlon, a frantic 1500m swim from one beach to another followed by a swift 40km stint on a bike and finally on to the gruelling 10km run. Pull up a seat to take in the sights of hundreds of athletes trying to beat one another out of the water before heading to the finish line in good to time spot the winner.
