10/05/2011 reports that Antalya will be staging a major triathlon this November where the winning competitors stand the chance of winning €25,000 in prize money.

Online PR News – 05-October-2011 – – The 2011 Antalya Triathlon will feature the standard three disciplines of swimming, cycling and running which will take place around the coastline of the beautiful Turkish city. First up for competitors is a group start from the beach where everyone will be running into the sea hoping to get an early lead and break away from the crowds.

The swim is made up of a two lap circuit, 1.5km in total, and the waters are expected to be a pleasant 23°C.

After fighting the currents, swimmers will then take their place on the bikes and will have to complete six laps of a 40km course. The cycling is said to be fairly straight forward, with no hills and all on tarmac.

Competitors will then need to leave enough for the run which is four laps and 10km to the finish line where hopefully they’ll be taking home a share of the winnings. For people travelling from a hotel Antalya City Centre the event is set to take place on 2nd November 2011 and the entry fee for anyone that wants to take part is €50.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: “The coastal resort is popular with tourists and the triathlon is going to add to visitor numbers. Anyone planning in being in Antalya should check availability online first and book rooms quickly.”
