Written by  Sep 17, 2021

The Earth, Sea & Fire – Dubrovnik International Triathlon 2021 will take place on a new date – Saturday, 2nd Oct – limited number of participants- Sprint distance only.

The Dubrovnik Team has been working hard to resolve the ever changing complexities that COVID has produced.

The continued evolving health and safety regulations in different countries is also becoming more and more challenging. There is also continued airline uncertainty regarding flights to Dubrovnik in mid-October.

Therefore, in the light of all global happenings the organisation team have decided to deliver a special edition of the Earth, Sea & Fire Dubrovnik Triathlon, numbers will be limited to 100 participants. There will be only one distance this year – SPRINT distance.

"We have to respect the local and national health and safety protocols in Croatia. The race will be allowed to held in the very safe and well secured Dubrovnik Port area," stated the organisers. 

The 750m, 2 lap swim will remain in the Port of Dubrovnik as usual. Two laps also delivers a safer control area. The bike 20km, the favourite part of every ESF bike leg lover is two laps along the flat roads by the Dubrovnik River. The run 5km will be also two laps and will take place inside the Port area. The run is very flat.

Croatian health protocol at the moment required a safe zone between spectators and the participants for the international events. 

The new date for the special 2021 edition of the Earth, Sea & Fire Dubrovnik Triathlon event is 2pm October 2, 2021. – Saturday, with preliminary start of the race 14:00 – local time.

"Hopefully 2022 will bring us normal conditions globally and we will return to the standard multi distance event at the Earth, Sea & Fire Dubrovnik International Triathlon event. Thank you for supporting triathlon in all these difficult times and we hope to see you in Dubrovnik on the 2nd of October, 2021," concluded the organisers.
