The portfolio of ‘Xtreme’ races gained a new addition this past weekend with the inaugural edition of the Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon in Spain. We’ve got an extended gallery from the race, where Great Britain’s Michelle Parsons was the women’s winner
The race, which will debut on September 29th 2018, joins the prestigious XTRI World Tour circuit as a Prospect Race. It will be the only race in Spain that becomes part of this small family composed of long distance extreme triathlons from around the world.
Hispaman joins a select group of triathlons formed by Celtman, Swissman, Canadaman, Swedeman and Jánošík Slovak Xtreme Triathlon. All of them of course headed by the mythical Norseman.

The first edition of Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon will be on Octber 29, 2018. It promises to be an exciting adventure. Inspired by the essence of triathlon, Hispaman goes back to the roots of the sport with an extreme long distance triathlon (3.8 km/ 180 km / 42 km).
Designed for 330 participants, the race is inspired by the mythical Norseman. This challenge offers a unique experience to the triathletes, who will compete against themselves with their supporters.
From the sea to the top of the mountain
Located in the province of Castellón, one of the most mountainous in Spain, Hispaman arrives in 2018. From the calm waters surrounding the iconic Papa Luna Castle in Peñíscola, triathletes will face a demanding cycling route on the way to Els Ports and Alt Maestrat, in the interior of Castellón. After an elevation gain of 3,400 meters, the race runs along paths and forest tracks. With 2,000 meters of cumulative elevation, the goal is the finish line, located in Vistabella.
