Registration for Telia Triathlon Now Open
NGO Sportlik Eesti ja Telia Estonia announced registration for two triathlon competitions which will be held in Otepää and Tallinn. The events are open for the general public to enter. The organizers’ aim is to offer the possibility to try triathlon to as many people as possible and support active lifestyle on Estonian’s centennial year.
The Telia 4:18:4 Triathlon consists of 400 meters of swimming, 18 kilometers of cycling and a 4-kilometer run, i.e. one tenth of a full-distance triathlon. The Telia 4:18:4 Triathlon competitions will take place on June 17 in Otepää with start and finish at the Pühajärve lake, and on August 5 in Tallinn. Both events are held under the IRONMAN 70.3 Otepää half-ironman and IRONMAN full distance competitions arranged by NGO Sportlik Eesti. Currently more than 1,700 participants from 50 countries have already registered for both competitions.
“We want to offer everyone a chance to participate in a triathlon competition which is accessible to all people with active lifestyle,“ said Ain-Alar Juhanson, the main organizer of the event. “If you can swim, have any kind of bike, and you are willing to finish the distance by walking or running a few kilometers, then you are ready to try triathlon.“
According to Kirke Saar, CTO at Telia Estonia, the triathlon competition is a great chance to get to know oneself and take part in a fun sporting event.
“There are many people in Estonia who run, ski, bike, and do other sports. Hopefully the Telia 4:18:4 Triathlon will give many people a boost to try a longer distance in the future. For example, there are several Telia employees who have already registered for this year’s IRONMAN and certainly many will follow“, Kirke Saar added.
The competition is open for both individual participants and teams where people can share the three disciplines among their colleagues, relatives, friends or gym buddies. All participants will receive a Telia 4:18:4 Triathlon T-shirt and a medal. Additionally, the participants will enter a draw for prizes and there will be special prizes for organizations, sports clubs and companies with the largest number of participants.
