The Sands Beach Spring Duathlon

Clocks have gone forward, the temperature is rising and wild flowers are blooming – thats the cue to shake off winter’s mantle and get out into the sunshine to boost the body’s vitamin D supply.

Okay, for those of us who are lucky enough to live on Lanzarote, the arrival of spring doesn’t have quite the same impact for us as it does for northern European dwellers as our winters can be imperceptibly different from our springs and our autumns. But this year we’ve seen some unusually wet and cold weather so we’re just as up for spring as everyone else.

Here at Sands Beach, the arrival of the new season can only mean one thing…time to stretch the muscles and take to the pedals in our third Annual Spring Duathlon. Starting from Sands Beach Resort in Costa Teguise, the event will begin with a 5 km run to be followed by a 20 km cycle ride and finishing with a final 2.5 km run. There will be trophies for first place by group, age and team.

If you’re on holiday at Sands Beach Resort, why not hire a top quality bike from Papagayo Bike (you’ll find the office in reception) and join in the fun for the day.
