The Portimão Triton will be the first event on the TRITON World Series, a worldwide circuit of long-distance multisport races focusing on the three segments of a triathlon: swim, bike and run. Each race is run over 3 days, one for each of the 3 sports, with the respective times added together in the end. There are also 3 distances to choose from, giving everyone the opportunity to participate.
The Alvor is home to one of Portimão’s most beautiful beaches. Prainha – To the eastern end of Três Irmãos Beach, deeply sculpted cliffs rise up out of the sands, with rocky outcrops extending into the sea, is the host venue for the swim, and within walking distance to the host hotel & resort and TRITON Race Village. The bike course will take place on the famous Portimão Racetrack, and lastly, on day three, the run start and end will be at the beautiful Portimão Marina besides the famous Praia da Rocha, both part of the course.
To secure your space, simply choose from one of our three 3-night accommodation packages and select the distance you’d like to join, to build your perfect Triton experience.

A small paradise that sits on the shores of the Algarve coastline. Três Irmãos Beach lies around a bay formed by rocky outcrops located on the eastern extent of the Alvor sands that manage to extend unbroken over a full 7 kilometres.
It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area of Portimão. It is famous for its stunning rock formations and the many hidden caves that can be explored. The sunset from this beach is absolutely gorgeous.
The swim is an L shaped loop of 1.5km on open water. Those doing the 3.0km distance will do two loops, with a short run on the beach at the end of the first loop, passing by an aid station. Those doing the 4.5km will do 3 loops, running by the aid station twice.
This loop course makes it an exciting competition for both the participants and spectators, as it is easier for spectators to follow the action, and for athletes to control who’s around them.
Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is one of the best and most modern racing circuits in the world.
The racing track was developed as part of an innovative global project to provide a comprehensive range of facilities to the most varied sectors of the motor industry, from constructors to racing teams and companies, allowing them to present, test and develop their products.
The design characteristics of the track provide spectators with impressive and far-reaching views from any grandstand.
The bike course starts and finish with a lap inside the Portimão Racetrack and will climb all the way to the Foia, the most challenging climb in the Algarve rising to almost 1.000 meters.
The bike course is draft legal with no time trial bikes allowed, and as such we will have a wave start with the numbers of bikers starting on each wave, being dependent on the total number of participants. Parts of the course will be open to local traffic. We recommend exercising extreme caution when riding and showing respect to all traffic laws.
We saved the best for last. A trail that will take you next to the ocean where you can admire the myriad blues of the sea.
As you run along beside the sea, you will enjoy the immensity of the ocean and try to spot shearwaters (in summer) or even dolphins playfully leaping out of the water. When you reach the far end, take a look at the rocks that form the breakwater. At low tide, there’s lots of crabs feeding here, or mussels, whelks and limpets, clinging to the rocks and waiting for the sea level to rise again at high tide.
Please stay on the footpaths and walkways on this nature trail in the Portimão region. The ecosystem is very fragile and people treading on the vegetation can very quickly destroy a habitat that takes years to form.
The run course starts and finishes at the Portimão Marina and it goes all the way to the Arribas of Praia do Vau (cliffs) and back, going over the “passadiços de madeira”, the wooden walkway over the beach.
The run is a magnificent experience with a course alongside the ocean all the way.
