Having delivered a successful event for the world’s best triathletes in 2023, the PTO are returning to Ibiza in 2024 and this time, athletes of all abilities can take part in our open 100km race, which features a 2km sea swim, 80km closed-roads bike course and 18km waterfront run.
*2023 race course – 2024 course subject to change.
The race will kick-off with a 2km sea swim from the classic triathlon host location of Figueretas Beach.
It's a well protected beach where surf is unlikely but the swim will still favour those athletes used to navigating the natural swell of ocean waters. Water temperature is likely to allow for wetsuits so those whose major strengths are bike and run could benefit from the buoyancy and speed of a wetsuit swim.
An Aussie exit between the two laps will give you athletes the chance to scope out the competition and is also an opportunity for a quick sprint up a couple of places or to get your breath back a little before diving back in.
After a fast transition, things will heat-up under the Mediterranean sun on to the 80km bike course, which heads out of Ibiza Town where the first of four 19km bike laps will begin on smooth tarmac uphill towards San Antonio before turning around for a fast descent to finish the lap. At the end of the fourth lap, it's back into town and T2 ahead of the run.
Once off the bike and through T2 back at Figueretas Beach, you will head out towards Ibiza Port to take on six 2.5km run laps along the sea front. With plenty of turn-arounds, there will be ample opportunity for you to gauge your progress and get an extra burst of energy from the cheering crowds.
At the end of the run, it's onto the blue carpet and a thrilling finish-line experience in the historic Plaza del Martillo, where you'll earn your medal and bragging rights for having swum, biked and run 100km!
The stunning Balearic island of Ibiza is much more than just a party capital – there's a world of culture to enjoy and beautiful scenery to explore, making it an untapped playground for endurance athletes.
