Sports training in Lanzarote

Island sports events are on the up! The increasingly popular trail running competitions, open water swimming events plus the annual Lanzarote Marathon are amoung the endless list. This is largely due to the perfect natural terrain for sports training in Lanzarote. Whether it be running, swimming or cycling many pro/age group triathletes and cyclists use lanzarote as a base for their training weeks.

Our volcanic island is of course home to the Godfather of the triathlon event calendar. Ironman Lanzarote is held during the month of May each year, plus the nearly new Lanzarote IM 70.3 which was held for the second time in November 2013.

There are many other triathlon competitions including the Tri122 and Ocean Lava, barely a month goes by when there isnt an event to take part in. Many are accessible for any sports enthusiast, with suitable competitions for a variety of fitness levels.

Tiagua 81 has been designed with the sports person in mind. The four lovely studios and apartments provide a luxurious approach to Lanzarote self-catering accommodation, with a shared pool and a storage area for sports equipment included. It was via Tiagua 81 that we came into contact with Amy Kilpin. A relative new comer to the world of triathlon, Amy has had some promising results and is now looking forward to racing at the ITU and ETU LongDistance Championships in 2014.
