In cooperation with the Herceg Novi Triathlon Club, the Portonovi Aquathlon will be held in Portonovi Resort for the first time on Sunday, September 11th. In addition to the competition in the sprint aquathlon (the distance of 1000 m swimming and 5000 m running), there will also be a 1000 m open-water swimming competition for all those who prefer exclusively swimming disciplines.
Aquathlon is a great way for both beginners and recreational athletes to enter the world of multisports, whereas for experienced triathletes this format represents an excellent opportunity to add something different to their usual competition and training routine.
This sports and recreational event is of a humanitarian character, bearing in mind that all income from participation fees is intended for charity. The aquathlon is also a unique opportunity to get to know Portonovi from a completely different perspective - as the entire swimming discipline takes place along the coast, the running discipline along the main streets of this luxury resort to the helipad at the southernmost part of Portonovi Marina, and the finish line of the race is located on Marina Square.
Applications are open at https://3hn.live/portonovi, and you can find more information about the competition on the Facebook Event Page Portonovi Aquathlon 2022.
The combination of two basic sports - swimming and running - form one of the simplest and, at the same time, one of the most attractive forms of the multisport discipline called aquathlon, which in its basic format consists of 1000 m swimming and 5000 m running.
