T1 Loutraki, Training
a. Swimming Training
The pre-competition swimming is possible:
* Across Loutraki's beach
* At the swimming's race area.
* Athletes who purchased the "OFFICIAL packages" could also train free of charge at the swimming pool of the Municipality of Loutraki.
b. Bike Training
Training in the race circuit can be done on your own responsibility, while the road is open to traffic. The cycling road is a large avenue (El.Venizelos Ave.) towards the town and the Isthmus of Corinth with not much traffic, but still athletes should be cautious. We highly recommend you to ride on the right side of the road and to wear reflective gear and helmet. The race's staff can provide you with all the information needed regarding Loutraki and the Corinth region.
c. Run Training
In Loutraki you will find some wonderful routes for training. The most common and easily accessible route is across the beach sidewalk. You will find a flat, seaside running route with magnificent view at the Corinthian Gulf and the Gerania mountain. We recommend you to train during the afternoon, in order to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Otherwise, you can use Loutraki's town stadium (Thodeion Stadium) where you can train in the tartan track. The stadium will be open for all participants all day long, from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th October.
