Sports Tours International have been appointed the Official UK & Ireland Sports Travel Partner for ELBAMAN and the inaugural ELBAMAN half iron distance triathlon which will take place on Sunday 26 September 2010.
The sports travel partner have teamed up with 220 Triathlon to offer readers the chance to go on a fantastic package to the sold-out Elbaman. 220 readers should head here and just quote ‘220ST’ on the booking form.
Recently picked by 220’s Mark Kleanthous as one of its Best European Middle Distance Triathlons (“an incredible landscape and plenty of cheering supporters”), this year’s race will be the sixth event held on the small idyllic island near Tuscany (just five miles from the mainland).
Swim (1.9km) The swim starts from a beautiful sandy beach. One lap takes place inside the Marina di Campo bay in clean, clear water.
Bike (94km) Two laps with rolling hills and great panoramic views of the sea below, looking across to the mainland of Italy.
Run (21km) Two-lap flat course.
