A unique triathlon race
The municipality of Vari – Voula – Vouliagmeni, hosts at the Athenian Riviera (Vouliagmeni Beach) the event, which grows every year and is now one of the favourite destinations of the World Off Road Triathlon athletes.
A unique sports experience, the XTERRA combines swimming with mountain biking and mountain running. The mountain terrain, in South Hymettus above Varkiza and Vouliagmeni, consists of routes designed with a love of nature and sports, medium to high difficulty and in such a way that top professional athletes, complete the long distance in about two hours and 30 minutes. At the same time, of course, it is an ideal terrain for anyone to start the off road triathlon, as it enables the athlete who will not move at high speeds, to stay safe all the way. In general – as it occurs to Triathlon – swimming is 10% of the total race time, 65% for mountain biking, and 25% for running. It all started for XTERRA with the first race in 1996 in Maui, Hawaii, where the Triathlon was first tested in its mountainous at its most demanding version.
