World Cup di Triathlon
Triathlon World Cup at Arzachena for the next 3 years
Triathlon pros and fans coming from 40 different Nations will gather at Arzachena during the Triathlon World Cup Arzachena and Triathlon Costa Smeralda on May 30th and 31st as the same time as the long break for the Republic Day on June 2nd which lights up the Spring in Sardinia.
It is the right chance to visit the nearby villages of Cannigione and Porto Cervo livened up as ever by athletes and race, swimming and bike enthusiasts. Just for them we have planned trails that wind through green hills all along the seafront overlooking the blue Gulf of Arzachena.
Are there better places where compete for the podium valid for the world rank and qualifying for the Olympics? The 500 athletes expected agreed on this issue, motivated by the special agreements with the ferry companies and hotels which offer good holiday packages to fully enjoy their stay before, during and after the competition.
Also the public will find out how good and convenient is enjoying Sardinia in May and June.
Low cost Airlines link the island to the mainland at competitive prices, while hotel and b&b will charge lower prices than in high season.
Anyway, you’d better plan everything in time. The Municipality of Arzachena has signed an agreement with the Triathlon National Federation and also with the International Triathlon Union to host this competition up to 2022.
Make sure to get a front-row seat!
