The Russian Cup, the Open Championships and Krasnodar Region Championship IRONSTAR OLYMPIC TRIATHLON SOCHI 2016 for age group athletes and professionals, Olympic distance: 1.5-km swim, 40-km bike, 10-km run. Everyone who has registered and paid the entrance fee is welcome.
Sochi is the capital of the 2014 Winter Olympics and is the most beautiful southern city in Russia. The unique infrastructure and the favorable climate make it the best venue for holding triathlon races.
Athletes aren’t the only ones who will like this location – their family members and supporters will be happy to spend a weekend here as well. There is a new amusement park within walking distance and the hotel windows offer great views of the Formula 1 track. A spectacular promenade stretches along the seafront. Imagine also the caressing waves of the Black Sea, the endless coastline with its beaches and bays, mouth-watering smells coming from cafes and restaurants, and you will understand why we invite you to come to Sochi.
The competition starts at Imeretinsky Bay. The Port’s waters are enclosed, which ensures more comfortable conditions than the open sea. Water temperature during the “velvet” season reaches 25 degrees.
The cycling course is marked around Imeretinsky Resort & Hotel and Sochi Olympic Park. The course is especially suitable for fast races and has no ascents, which is great for clocking in your best time at the cycling distance.
The race ends with the running course along the Black Sea.
September 24, 2016. It is the “velvet” season in the south of Russia. A perfect chance to finish the IRONSTAR race and spend a weekend at the best Russian resort.
The professionals who have taken part in Russian Triathlon Federation Championship IRONSTAR 113 SOCHI and 2015 SOCHI ETU TRIATLON EUROPEAN CUP FINAL, have noted how fast the Sochi course is: it has neither height drops nor sharp turns.
