Start training because it is time for you to discover Madrid from its unknown West Country Side to its emblematic Puerta del Sol. Starting at Pantano de San Juan in San Martín de Valdeiglesias, triathletes will have to swim a distance of 3.8 Km. Afterwards, the bicycle course will be 180 km long and will be developed in the Madrid West Country Side, where the mountainous terrain predominates, giving way to other lower areas through which the Alberche and Perales rivers run. The variety of landscapes, as well as the relief and the vegetal species that can be observed, are very valuable until arriving to Madrid before changing to the Run with 42.195 km. Crossing Puente del Rey and Passing Casa de Campo, the competition ends in an amazing final at Madrid’s heart and center: Km 0 in Puerta del Sol.
