Last weekend the fifth edition of Berga Sailfish by Sands Beach Active took place, an event that has managed to grow year after year by adding more and more participants.
In this edition, some 800 participants gathered for the event.
The competition started at 8am, in which athletes began with a 1.9 km swim on a triangular course. After completing this section, the competitors hopped on their bikes to complete a 90 km bike ride at a height of 1000m. Finally they had to run the 21 km route that separated them from their goal. This last section consisted of three laps around the city, after which participants were welcomed by their family and friends.
This year’s event winner was Andreas Dreitz, followed by Jordi Matos in second place and Sergi Puigmal in third place. The German Dreitz held the lead from start to finish, taking a lead of almost 11 minutes over Jordi Matos.
As for the women, Judit Corachan managed to win first place, and she shared the podium with Mercè Tusell and María Ortega de Miguel.
After experiencing a new success in participation in 2015, Sailfish Berga by Sands Beach Active is becoming one of the most important events in Spain.
Now we just have to start preparing and counting down the days for the sixth edition in 2016.
