High Energy Holiday For Athletes – Spring 2020

Italian Hospitality Collection is inviting athletes to take part a week of high-octane sporting events during Chia Laguna’s third Chia Sport Week in Spring 2020.

Events include Chia’s third cycling Gran Fondo and second open-water swimming competition on Friday 24th April, as well as the annual Chia Sardinia Triathlon 70,3 on Saturday 25th April, and Chia Laguna Half-Marathon on Sunday 26th April.

Following the 500 triathletes in the Triathlon 70,3 in 2019, and more than 3,000 runners in the Half-Marathon, 2020’s events are set to be bigger and better than ever before.

On 24th April, guests can take part in Chia’s cycling Gran Fondo event. The exhilarating bike ride will see participants cycling 126km along Sardinia’s deserted outback and stunning, panoramic coastline.

Chia Laguna’s open-water swimming competition will take place on Dune Di Campana beach on 24th April, which will allow participants to choose from three distances: 1.9, 3.8 and 5.0 km.

The Chia Sardinia Triathlon 70,3 is the fifth half-triathlon to take place at the resort and is expected to be one of the biggest events in the Italian triathlon season.

25th April will see guests swim 1.9km in Sardinia’s stunning waters, bike 90km along the island scenic southern coast and run 21km through undulating closed roads and the breath-taking Chia Beach, voted Italy’s most beautiful beach two years in a row. There will be also a Sprint Distance for a less competitive race.

26th April, participants of the Half-Marathon will line up to run a 21,097-metre race along Sardinia’s world-famous coast on closed roads. Turquoise waters, white sand dunes, a lagoon home to pink flamingos and an ancient Spanish tower will act as the accompaniment to the challenging yet beautiful run.

From the 22nd April, Chia Laguna will also be hosting a series of non-competitive races and events for sports fans of all ages and abilities.

These four competitions provide a unique opportunity for guests to participate in high-level sport, while savouring Chia’s stunning natural surroundings.
