Swimming, bike and race. Three words that describe one of the most challenging but also fascinating sporting competitions for any sportsman. As you surely understood, we are talking about the Elbaman triathlon, one of the most anticipated and followed competitions of this sport. Event that in 2018 will be held on September 30th.


For real sportsmen who want to test themselves

3.8 kilometers of swimming, 180 kilometers of bike and 42.2 kilometers of running: this is the classic Elbaman triathlon, a very demanding race that will require the participants to give their energy and skills. There will also be the Elbaman 73 race, less demanding but still difficult: 1.9 kilometers of swimming, 94 kilometers of bike and 21.1 kilometers of running. Finally, there is also Elbaman kids, with the three races that will be reshaped according to the small participants.


Where the event will be held

The start of all three races (Classic, Elbaman 73 and Elbaman kids) will be, at different and consecutive times, always from the beach of Marina di Campo. Have you booked a ferry to Elba island that will take you to Portoferraio? Then, from the main town on the island, you have to take the provincial road 24 to Procchio and then the provincial road 25 to Marina di Campo. The journey by car takes just half an hour.
