Cameron Wurf and Judith Corachan were crowned in the Challenge Salou 2018

The fourth edition of CHALLENGESALOU, that has been disputed yesterday in Salou, left us an exciting duel till the end in the Middle male category between the winner Cameron Wurf (03:45:37) and the second classified Pablo Dapena (03:46:38). The Galician Dapena came out in first position after finishing the swim segment, but during the bike segment he lost time due to stomach problems, which has caused that the Australian Wurf placed himself in first position.

Still in Middle male category, George Coogwin (03:49:23) has been the third to cross the finish line, followed by the winner of the past edition of Challenge Salou, Emilio Aguayo (03:51:22).

In the Middle female category, the winner has been the Catalan Judith Corachan (04:12:05), followed by the English Laura Siddall (04:16:26) and the Italian Margie Santimaria (04:20:48). The winner of the Challenge Salou 2017, Sara Loehr, had to settle for the fourth position.

In the return of the modality SHORT this year, the first three classified have been Marcos Burdaspar (02:50:25), Miquel Solé (02:51:01) and Raúl Lorenzo (02:51:44). In females, the podium has been led by Dolça Ollé (02:57:37), Alba Tormo (03:34:06) and Gemma Casulleras (03:50:29).

In AQUATHLON, the victory has been for Jorge De Andrés (01:11:51) in the male category and Olga Sierra (01:42:15) in female category.

It has been a weekend full of activities for the entire family with the CHALLENGESALOU “The Festival”. On Friday we could listen, during the EXPO of the CHALLENGESALOU, to a conference with different professional triathletes. On Saturday we enjoyed with the SAILFISH OPEN WATER, accompanied by the great Marcel Zamora, and the BREAKFAST RUN. The little ones also enjoyed in the KIDS RUN and during the afternoon a large number of women could pay tribute to a very special person who left us very recently, Murielle Reig.
