Lo­ca­tion Dubrovnik, Croa­tia Date TBC Oc­to­ber 2019 Okay, trav­el­ling abroad for your first race may seem a touch in­dul­gent, but it’s hard to ar­gue with warm Adri­atic wa­ters, a closed-road course and an UN­ESCO World Her­itage Site back­drop. And all from the re­li­able or­gan­i­sa­tional hands of John Lunt, the man who gave us Wind­sor and the 2012 Olympic Games triathlons.

Over to our colum­nist Tim Heming on whether Dubrovnik de­serves a place on your itin­er­ary for 2019, whether you’re a be­gin­ner or ex­pe­ri­enced ath­lete alike. “There are races that of­fer a calm, wet­suit-op­tional sea swim, there are oth­ers that pro­vide closed-bike cour­ses that are flat and safe for novices, and still more that pro­vide a scenic back­drop. There are some that also of­fer plenty of cul­tural op­tions when you strip off the Ly­cra. But a des­ti­na­tion that ticks all those boxes is a chal­lenge, and that’s where Dubrovnik wins out.” earth­seafire.eu


TRY IF... You’re tempted by a new rac­ing des­ti­na­tion, late­sea­son sun and a gen­er­ous dose of cul­ture.
