Triathletes running into the sea for Martinhal Triathlon

If it’s sunshine, breathtaking scenery and a step into Europe’s history you’re after, then the next event from Algarve Triathlon is a must. Located on the most southwesterly tip of Portugal and once thought by early Europeans to be the edge of the world, the town of Sagres stands high on the list of places to visit in Portugal.


The race will be held in the five-star Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel which is surrounded by the spectacular Costa Vicentina natural park, overlooking the Martinhal beach where the 750m and 1500m swim will take place.

Start of Martinhal Triathlon in Algarve, Portugal

The 20km and 40km cycle will take you out to Cape St Vincent – the most southwesterly point of Europe – and taking in some of Sagres’ historic landmarks along the way. Heading back into Martinhal, the 5km and 10km run will meander through the paths of the resort and finish back where it all began near the Martinhal beach.

The five-star Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel will be throwing a huge after-party with great food and entertainment, all included in the race entry price. This historic Town of Sagres is becoming a mecca for surfing and outdoor activities, and is an ideal place for a holiday or short break. Just over an hour from Faro airport, it’s easily accessible and a destination you will be sure to return to.
