Follonica

The picturesque Tuscany region is welcoming the TriStar Triathlon event in September for the first edition in Italy. Following the philosophy of TriStar with a short swim leg start, the bike centric format where the emphasis is on a longer, more challenging bike ride rounds off the triathlon with a short run leg. The course offers Mediterranean Sea open water swimming, an undulating power sapping bike course from Follonica to Massa Marittima and back with some beautiful hills.  Join the unique experience with start and finish line in the Golfo del Sole resort in Follonica.
