TRITON 3 Rio de Janeiro format and race venues for each day are perfect for spectators / family members when it comes to the swim and the run, since there both at the Host Resort, Portobello.
However, there are restrictions to the number of people being able to enter, if not staying at the resort. The race guide will provide more detailed information.
The bike course, being on Serra do Piloto is not the best location for spectators, therefore we ask you not to follow them but rather watch the start and wait for they’re return.
To better understand the location, pulse take a look at the course and maps on our menu bar.
We ask of you not to interfere with the action and stay away from the courses as an accident might ultimately take of the race, the athlete you are cheering for, and or, innocent spectators.
TRITON 3 Rio de Janeiro Race Village is located at the resort.
The Race Village is also the host venue for the swim competition on Friday, the run on Sunday and the awards right after the run, on Sunday.
The swim takes place right in front of the resort and it will be, most likely, wetsuit legal, more updates on this on the race guide.
The swim will take place in a 1.200 meters lap format
The bike is course is “made for speed”.
While the first 2.5 km – 3 km are trough the main streets of the race venue, the rest of the course and most of it is on 100% closed to traffic highway with 3 larges lanes going out and back in.
While it is not possible to follow athletes in to the highway, it is possible to see them going by the aid station ant the bike turn around.
For about 4 hours you will have inempterrcmped bike action that you can follow and cheer.
Make athletes feel special and give them an extra boost of energy while you make some noise.
The best for last? You’ll be the judge of that. The run starts and finishes at the Village of Portimão Marina, a place very spectator friendly and sure to have lots of people cheering you on all the way from start to finish.
The run course will take you over the “passadiços” (wooden walkways) of Praia da Rocha, the huge beach stretching for over a kilometre and sheltered by attractive, craggy cliffs in warm colours is the reason why Rocha Beach is one of the best-known beaches in Portugal and a top choice among summer holidaymakers. Practically the whole beach is crisscrossed by walkways, alongside which there are many different support infrastructures for beachgoers, including a sports area.
Upon the seafront avenue, there is a succession of hotels, bars, open-air cafés discos and a casino, all eventually leading up to Portimão Marina and providing an array of tourist activities that bring added colour and complement the entertainment on the beach.
But it doesn’t end there the run will take you past, Três Castelos to the west all the way to Praia da Vau, running over the cliffs and past Santa Catarina Fortress at the entrance to the harbour on the River Arade. Both afford fabulous panoramic views over the coastline between Ponta João d’Arens and Ponta do Altar.
