13-16 November 2019








For the 6th year in a row, the Sahl Hasheesh Endurance Festival will be taking place at the Red Sea's premier resort destination: Sahl Hasheesh. The Winter 2019 Edition of The TriFactory's flagship multi-sport event takes place from 13-16 November!

The Sahl Hasheesh Endurance Festival 2018 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, & Half Iron 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.
