For the 7th year in a row, the Sahl Hasheesh Endurance Festival will be taking place at the Red Sea's premier resort destination: Sahl Hasheesh. The Summer 2020 Edition of The TriFactory's flagship multi-sport event takes place from 04-06June!

The Sahl Hasheesh Endurance Festival 2019 was the biggest multi-sport event ever to take place in Egypt with over 1000 athletes from 30 different nationalities competing in the overall and age group standings.


This year the event will offer participants the Sprint, Supersprint, Olympic, & Tribal distances.

Athletes aged 8-12 can take part in the Youth Race, while children 8 and younger can participate in the 1K Kids Race with their families. 

Organised to the highest of international endurance sports standards, this is Egypt's biggest and best multi-sport event!


Situated around a stunning bay on the Red Sea coast just 15km south of Hurghada International Airport, Sahl Hasheesh is quickly becoming Egypt’s premier holiday destination and a must-go for sports travel. Sahl Hasheesh is also turning into the Middle East’s premier triathlon destination. This April, we’re back with a revamped itinerary, spanning three days and taking you through the calm, transparent waters of the bay, the smooth palm-lined avenues of the resort, and the scenic seaside promenade, to give you the best swim-bike-run racing experience available.

TRIBAL was introduced for the first time in 2018, and opened for general participation in 2019. TRIBAL is primarily a team challenge, with teams comprising three athletes competing against each other for all the glory. All three athletes per team must complete the full Sprint distance followed by the Supersprint distance. Unlike the relay concept where athletes do not compete at the same time, in TRIBAL, team members are racing alongside each other, and work together to pace themselves and also draft during each of the race legs. No matter how talented an individual athlete is, teams will win depending on the fastest total time calculated for all three athletes. 

In addition to the typical Rules & Regulations, the following rules will apply to TRIBAL athletes:

  • All three athletes must complete the Sprint & Supersprint distances.

  • Drafting is permitted.

  • Team members may assist each other in the event of a bike repair.

  • Team members may share resources (nutrition, bike parts, gear).


Don’t miss the action – Saturday at 7 am!


Accommodation, transportation, and bike transfer offers are available to all Sahl Hasheesh visitors (participants and spectators) for the race weekend including special discounted rates at different hotels in Sahl Hasheesh, bike transfer, and airport pick-up. Whether you are coming to compete or to cheer and support your friends and family, we have the package for you!
