The Lion Heart Ultra Cross Triathlon is inspired by love for the stunning nature of Bulgaria and the feeling of freedom which goes with it. This year, on the 1st of September, the town of Primorsko will become a gathering point for the boldest and most enduring athletes willing to become part of the Lion Heart Ultra.
There are two type of participation – relay ( team of 3) and ultra.
The stages are as follow:
Swimming : 3 km
Cycling: 116 km
Running: 21 km
The race is promising to be interesting and competitive. RunningZone is partner and will help the participant with energy fuel.
Participants relay (running and cycling) and ultra will have GU Energy Gel in their drop bag. Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel packs energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
We wish good luck to all lion hearts that will start on the 1st September!
