almiraΜΑΝ

AlmiraMAN is a Triathlon event race, taking place in Olympic Coast of Katerini area only 67 kms from Thessaloniki City (North Greece).

Is an event started by the love and passion of some people for sport. Held in Katerini beach overlooking the Thermaikos Gulf and the first leg of Halkidiki, while the imposing Olympus dominates the landscape.

First edition was in 2014 and in 2015 most of greatest Greek Athletes were participating this race, among others Krommidas Vasilis (winner of the race) which was the record holder of 18-25 age group in Kona since 1994 and Chris Garefis recently 1rst age group (60-65) winner in Chicago ITU World Triathlon Series (Sept 2015) both in sprint & Olympic distance.

The coming year (2017) event is a very challenging one for us and the organizing team, as having the support of local prefecture, we would like to proceed in a very competitive race event.
