cambia , usa la bici/decaironman sicilia
Welcome to DECA IRON ITALY
10 Iron triathlon distance in 10 days
ENDUROMAN EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
We are happy to announce the first italian Ultra Triathlon race.
Born from an idea by Roberto Lendaro,Giorgio Alessi and Vincenzo Catalano this race will take place (for its first edition) in Pergusa(Enna-Sicily island).
It is our intention to held the race every two years, changing location from Pergusa(Sicily) to Desenzano(Garda Lake).
The race is untipical ultra triathlon one in the way that there is an everyday brake after each competition.
We think that the tipical "decaironman" formula (38 km swimming-1800 km biking-42,195 km running) is too hard for athletes, so we chose the "one iron distance" for ten days;convinced that this formula could be more "easy" by everyone;giving to athletes the possibility to run how many "iron distance" triathlons they could.
The organisation decided to accept at least 40 athletes, giving the possibility to sign up in the race,at first, to all experienced ultra triathlon athletes.
This decision could be not so popular but we decided in this way as a thanksgiving to all athletes that travelled all around the world racing,spending time and money to dedicate theirselves to this big passion called ultra triathlon.
In the last years, so many races in ultra triathlon world had no respect for "historycal" athletes in this way.
We are indeed honoured and proud to join the wellknown "ENDUROMAN ULTRA TRIATHLON CIRCUIT" and being part of their races all around the world.
Hoping that YOU could enjoy our race,our land and our hospitality we are just looking forward to 30 september 2011, when our adventure will start.
Stay with us!

Transfert distance will be added to bike laps to arrive,every day, at 180 km.
Everyday ride test of 180 km will take place in a race car circuit of 5,00 km closed to traffic.
There are no lights in the bike/running track but the surrounding areas are sufficient lighted in the way to give quite good visibility on the race circuit.
Track is100% 95% flat with 5% slight or hill inside “Autodromo of Pergusa” with a total of 36 laps to cover 175 km plus 5,00 km is the distance between the swimming pool to the biking circuit
The run will take place in the same circuit of the cycling stage in the opposite sense. Each lap will have 5 km, with a total of 8 laps to cover the distance of 40.,00 km plus one additional lap of 2,195 km
The first transition area will take place in the swimming pool and the organization will provide bathrooms and dressing rooms for man and women. The second transition area will take place in the bike/run circuit in the start and finish line; the organization will provide spaces for man and women athletes and their support crews.
The total distance of the event is 38 km swim, 1’800 km bike and 422 km run but the way to do it, is to complete the distance of one Ironman per day, that means that every competitor has 24 hours to finish the distance of 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike and 42.2 km run in order to finish the total distance in 10 days.
ONE IRON x 10 DAYS:
The competitors have a limit of 24 hours to finish each iron, the remaining time is free, but they must start each day at swim time chosen by organizers with the swimming stage until finishing the Deca-Iron.
The organization will add the times from each competitor when finishing each Iron to determine the official places of each one.
If the competitor doesn't finish one or more Iron he/she can continue and the organization will add the kms traveled to determine the places that he/she will obtain.
So that the competitors can continue inside the event, it is a MUST that every day he/she start with the swimming stage at the hour pointed out by the organization and chosen at the entry form between the first start and the second start.
