The competition is programmed for the 15th February in Playa Blanca, in the south of the island so all those who wish to participate should reserve directly accommodation in Yaiza.

In this area, one of the most visited by tourists in Lanzarote, can be found from special hotels for athletes to luxury villas in the area of Montana Roja, ideal to relax after the hard ordeal.

The registration to participate in the event is already open (only up to 10th February) and anybody with some free time for a short break in Lanzarote can sign up on the web site of the Canarian Triathlon Federation. The reservation of a hotel in Playa Blanca is also very easy because the great resorts in Yaiza offer very affordable prices at this time of the year for a weekend or short four day break.
