Tour to Ironman 70.3 Barcelona for the TriClub European Championships
Last year, the Atlantic Triathlon Club was second in Division I at the Ironman TriClub European Championships, held in Pula, Croatia in September 2016! ATC had over 30 Triathletes at the event and the highlights of the trip included the welcoming parade the night before the event as well as our time on the podium at the awards ceremony. Both of these highlights happened inside the magnificent and ancient Pula arena.
This year, over 50 ATC’ers joined our tour to Portugal for the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Cascais, which was held in September 2017. Again, the trip was a huge success with an awesome event in historic and beautiful surroundings. Our celebratory member and the voice of triathlon, Paul Kaye, announced the event and welcomed our members like celebrity athletes on the red carpet! It felt like home from home!!
Next year, we are going to Ironman 70.3 Barcelona, which takes place on 20 May 2018! The event is also the European, Middle Eastern and African Ironman TriClub Championships. ATC is competing in Division II this year and, on points, we are currently lying in a close second in this division, which is incredible since we only have a few Ironman events in South Africa. So we need our members to take up the challenge and get us to the podium at Champs again.
The Tour will take place from 17 to 21 May 2018 and you are welcome to plan a longer trip around these dates to spend more time in Europe before, or after, the event.
The Tour Package includes:
4 Nights’ Accommodation in a 4-star Hotel.
Loungers and Towels at a private beach.
The Ironman 70.3 Race Entry.
Group Touring Kit
All Tourism Taxes

You can also request a price for non-racing members.
Bike rentals and airport transfers will be made available.
Unlike Pula and Cascais, which were new events, Barcelona is an established and popular race, which will sell out (like most European 70.3s). So if you are interested, get in touch quickly, so that we can get an entry for you.
