The organizing committee of middle distance triathlon Elbaman73 has confirmed that the event is now sold-out four months in advance of race day, with all 400 places allocated. This represents a record for the triathlon on Elba Island in Italy. The 2012 event sold-out last July.
The race, which is ‘totally independent of the big circuits from WTC or Challenge’, reportedly has a large amount of non-Italian athletes on the starting list this year – with 16 countries represented and international competitors taking up 29.5% of the total field.
A waiting list for the 2013 Elbaman73 has opened today through kronoservice.com.
The organisers stated in a release, ‘We are also very happy about the actual 210 entries received for the full-distance Elbaman (IX Edition) and we look forward to see an early sold-out event during the summer, filling up the 250 total places available.’
Elbaman takes place next September at the Marina di Campo (Elba Island) between Corsica and the western coast of Italy. The full distance Elbaman and Elbaman73 kick off on 29 September 2013.
