If it means being loaded with atmosphere, charm, great food and nightlife, yet ignored by the bulk of travelers, then Lisbon deserves consideration as Europe’s coolest capital and one of the must do race. Lisbon is the city of the oceans, the only European capital with sunsets on the sea, so close to sandy beaches and with one of the world’s largest state-of-the-art aquariums.
It is also one of the world’s greatest natural harbors which attracted different civilizations, now reflected in its architecture and culture recalling Phoenicians, Celts, Romans, Visigoths and Moors.
The Icing on the cake? The race venue!
Parque das Nações, striking contemporary architecture on the riverfront just 3 km from Lisbon’s international airport served by public transportation, subway, buses, taxis. The race venue is loaded with cools contemporary restaurants, night life, great for a morning jog and to practice all kinds of sports.
An idyllic swim venue, a bike course that features a freeway completely closed to traffic, a run course that’s flat and alongside the famous Tagu river, a city with a history that’s centuries old and the great portuguese hospitality are just a few of the highlights this event has to offer.
It will be host to the CHALLENGEFAMILY Corporate World Cup, and will be offering pro and age-group slots for THECHAMPIONSHIP, whose 1st edition will be in 2017, and will set the new standard for long distance triathlon racing.
The 2 lap swim takes place at the beautiful Rossio dos Olivais, next to the famous Lisbon Oceanarium, on calm waters.
The 4 lap bike course takes the athletes out of Parque das Nações and into the IC22 freeway, which will be completely closed to traffic. With ample space for everyone and the Tagus river as a backdrop, this is a mostly flat course, with a small hill climb just before turning around and heading back into town.
The 4 lap run is completely flat and alongside the Tagus river, with both paved and off-road sections.
