The Galician Triathlon Federation has just opened the registration period to participate in the third edition of the Solidarity Vertiathlon , a sports competition organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Baiona City Council, whose main objective is to raise funds for the Adapted Sailing School for people with disabilities of the Baiona club.
The test, which has the sponsorship of Verti Seguros for another year, will be held on September 16 at different points in Baiona. Participants must complete a 750-meter swim in the waters of the bay, pedal almost 20 kilometers through the streets of Baiona and run 5 kilometers along the Monte Boi peninsula, surrounding the historic Parador Nacional.
Participating in this solidarity event will cost 25 euros for federated athletes and 30 for non-federated athletes. The youngest athletes, from the cadet class, will be able to participate for free if they are federated and paying 6 euros if they are not.
The amount that is collected with the inscriptions will go entirely to the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School, whose main objective is to bring people with any type of disability closer to the sea, so that they can sail under equal conditions, in facilities without barriers. and on board adapted boats.
More than 200 people from different parts of Galicia participated in the last edition of the Solidarity Vertiathlon, which allowed them to raise, with their registration fees, nearly five thousand four hundred euros. The winners were Jacobo Crego, from the Vedra Olympian, in the men’s absolute category; and her clubmate, Aida García, in the women’s category.
