The Titanium Challenge was born between 2019 and 2020.
A product of ever-moving, dynamic and creative minds.
From the love of sport, dedication and above all, passion, true passion, came an idea that revolutionises the classic Triathlon. Titanium consists of mixed disciplines, that are not in succession as in the classic triathlon.
A cycle followed by a run, back on the bike and then another run.
The Titanium Challenge includes running on (beach) sand, this discipline gives life to a new sort of unconventional triathlon. Our Challenge is characterised by the lack of strategy as in the triathlon, because each discipline is proposed more than once, transforming the classic dynamics and stratagems.
Only strength, training and the mind matters, in other words: THE POWER OF OURSELVES
