First of its art
This triathlon race with a total distance of 222km is the first of this format ever. First edition of the event was in 2010 and main race venue is the region of Arzachena at the Costa Smeralda in the north east of Sardinia. Apart from the race on Sunday there will be a Star&Co Expo village with several stands for exhibitors that offer a rich selection of products and services to the athletes, family, friends and visitors.
The little continent
Of all mediterranean islands Sardinia is the one with the second largest biodiversity. Untouched areas in the back-country, a remarkable diversity of ecological nishes and home to some rare or endangered species like the turtle and the nuns seal. Due to its fascinating landscapes and varied vegetation and biodiversity Sardinia is also known as piccolo continente - small continent.
Pristine coastal areas and forests make the island to a natural paradise with a very special charm. The isolation of large protected areas preserve the landscape and the natural balance. The mild mediterranean climate ensures evergreen vegetation in Sardinia.
Preserve the natural paradise
The philosophy of all TriStar Races includes that the impact of the events on environment is limited to a minimum. Therefore the organizers of this event, I AM Sports, will take all possible actions to preserve the beauty and inviolacity of this region.
After swimming in the turquise-blue water of the Costa Smeralda with a high biodiversity the tough bike course takes the athletes for 200km to the hilly back-country of Sardinia. Here the athletes will be challenged enormously before they go for the final 20km on the run course. This physical challenge will need a special preparation and care during race in nutrition and race tactics.
Together for a sustainable race
The 4vita Association will support the organizers of TriStar222 Sardiniain their efforts to make this event sustainable in any manner. Solutions will be worked out and realized and all communication tools used to get all involved committed to this idea and responsibility. Together with the athletes we want to make this race healthy- for the athlete and the environment.
