The Lisboa Triathlon features two races in two different distances.
The Olympic Plus race is exactly half the distance of the half ironman distance race and this is why we call it "Olympic Plus", it's a little longer than the regular Olympic distance races.
In the Half Ironman distance race you have a chance to place in the general classification (placement in general classification for all individual divisions is what determines who wins the cash prize winners, not the elite or pro division) and in one of the many divisions to your choice.
Age-groups – This is probably the more "traditional" of all divisions and one in witch you compete according to your sex and age group that changes every 4 years, starting at 20 – 24, 25 – 29, 30 – 34, 35 – 39, and so on.
CEO – Is an individual division for participants in top jobs, such as, CEO's, CFO's, Administrators, business owners, General Managers, etc., etc.
Corporate / Relay division – This is the division for teams competition; you may register as a company name or as a club or organization. To participate in this division their must be at least two participants in which case one of the participants must do two segments or up to three participants in witch case each participant must do alone one of the segments.
This race features 950 m swim – 45 km bike – 10.5 km run and it is exactly half the distance of the Lisboa Triathlon and takes place in the same venue at the same time and with the same rules, the only difference is the distance.
14 minutes ( in 2014 - the difference from the 2013 race ) before the man, the average difference between elite man and women that race the Olympic distance.
