About the event
The Lisboa Triathlon is an event open to all kinds of adventurers and sports lovers. It is, above all, a race of self achievement, a compromise you take on. It is a race for sure, a competition, but most of all, a personal or a team challenge you take on. You will experience memorable and difficult moments but full of emotion.
It might seem like triathlon is for extraterrestrials but it is not, it is for those willing to commit to a challenge and sacrifice to receive the fulfil reward.
You will find a race for all sizes and shapes, you will find a race and format that suits you best at the Lisboa Triathlon, you will also find a challenge/race for over 500 kids.
