Set against a backdrop of the sparkling Xaracca Bay in the magical North of Ibiza, Triathlon of Senses is a unique celebration of sport, energy and mindfulness
IBIZA, Spain – February 9, 2022 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Looking for an endurance sporting experience with a touch of Zen? Kick off your 2022 triathlon season with Six Senses Ibiza. Capturing the authentic Ibiza experience of community, spirituality and celebration, the resort – opened in July 2021 – is swiftly becoming one of the leading luxury resorts in the Mediterranean. On April 30th, Six Senses Ibiza is hosting the Triathlon of Senses.
The Triathlon of Senses is anything but an ordinary triathlon. The event is a journey of mind and body, merging both the physical and spiritual dimensions. Rather than starting with a dash to the water, the Triathlon of Senses starts with a tailormade warm-up yoga followed by a meditation session aimed to enable the athletes to harness the power of breath, movement and energy for individual performance. Then it’s time to swim, bike and run and cross the finish line. A special winding down yoga, a self appreciation meditation and finally an Ibiza style celebration close out the event. It’s not only a competition, it’s a personal challenge that celebrates one’s energy, focus and endurance. The event features olympic, sprint and super distances along with a relay category and a kids event.
Olympian and former world champion Iván Raña Fuentes is headlining the event and will be leading the 4-day retreat.
“For me, racing in Spain is super motivational, and Ibiza will be even more so – it has such a unique energy. It’s a stunning landscape, the people are so friendly and after training, there will be plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind at the hotel. When you spend a lot of your time racing, it’s important to relax and be happy somewhere beautiful, too.” — Ivan Raña
Nestled in the stunning setting of Xarraca Bay in the northern tip of Ibiza, the Six Senses Ibiza Resort with its crystal blue waters and wild cliffs are the backdrop to a distinct preparation aimed at producing a unique frequency that heightens and creates a totally different experience.
