In a city with a large tradition in sports event organisation, especially in Triathlon, all the tiny details are taken care of in order to offer the best services to the athletes participating in the 2019 Pontevedra Multisport World Championships. The Spanish Triathlon Federation and the Local Organising Committee have been busy preparing many elements of the championships including a welcome pack, the opening parties and parades of nations, and other important necessities for the athletes that will be competing such as training areas, physiotherapy, mechanic services and bike hire. All this can be found on the event’s webpage: https://pontevedra2019.org/itu/en/services
The brain centre of all the competitions will be right by the bridge called ‘Puente De Los Tirantes’ and the sports college called ‘CGTD – Centro Galego de Tecnificación Deportiva’ (Galician Sports and Training College) very close to the town centre. Other athlete services such as registration and race number distribution, the expo and other entertainment and activities that will run parallel with the event will take place in the old town area of the city, mainly in ‘Plaza de España’ and ‘Alameda’, just a 15 minute walk from the main race area, which is between the CGTD sports centre and the pontoons near the bridge called ‘Puente De Los Tirantes’. From this point there is easy and quick access to all the discipline sections: swimming, cycling and running.
Keeping the athletes informed is paramount to the organisation team of the 2019 Pontevedra Multisport World Championships, especially in relation to the race courses, whose data can be found in different downloadable formats here: https://pontevedra2019.org/itu/en/services-2/race-maps/

For family and friends who are accompanying athletes there is also a section on the website dedicated to urban mobility, which explains how the city is predominantly pedestrianised especially in the old part of the city of Pontevedra: https://pontevedra2019.org/itu/en/services-2/mobility-and-transport/
