The profile of this three-pronged sporting event is definitely on the up; it's now part of both the Olympics and the Paralympics, and athletes such as the British Brownlee brothers have raised audience interest in the swimming, cycling and running challenge. It's also becoming popular among amateurs looking for a more varied exercise endeavour than that offered by just sticking to one sport. Unsurprisingly, then, the Barcelona Triathlon attracts thousands of competitors each year to its beachfront setting.

With three distances available, participants can choose between supersprint, sprint and Olympic and take part either as individuals, in pairs (where the two complete the course together) or as a relay team (with two or three members sharing the effort). As well as the sporting action, the day before the competition the Triexpo show is held, a place to find the latest in triathlon trends and accessories, making it ideal for stocking up on new kit and meeting some of the other people taking part.
