This summer, The TriFactory is challenging you to take on the ultimate Swim + Run event in Sahel: The TriFactory Aquathlon. Taking place on Friday, August 3rd in Marassi on the North Coast, athletes will swim in the bay before heading out on to the run course, then cross the finish line on the beach. A relay option is also available.
The Aquathlon gives athletes the opportunity to compete on the beach at one of the North Coast's most iconic destinations, with friends and family cheering them on from start to finish.
The Aquathlon is a limited-capacity event and race registrations are available on a first come, first served basis.
Marassi is one of the North Coast's most iconic destinations on the beautiful Mediterranean, where the athletes will be competing. The run takes place alongside the beach and within the resort, giving spectators a great view of all the action and allowing athletes to cross a finish line by the sea.
