XX Annual El Médano triathlon 14 June

Participants can now register for the annual El Médano triathlon, which takes place on 14 June from 9am. Several hundred are expected to take part and, no doubt, just as many if not more will be lining the routes to watch the 1.5 km swim, followed by a 40 km cycle race, and ending with a 10 km foot race. Gruelling is not the word! As usual the TF643 El Médano to Los Abrigos will be closed between 8.30 and 12.30, and there will be prizes of €800, €500 and €200 for the top three competitors.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
