I'm thrilled to share that the second edition of this adrenaline-pumping event is on its way! Scheduled to be held in Poreština on 15 October 2023, Escapian is here to provide a detailed breakdown of what to anticipate.  



Last year, the picturesque town of Poreč witnessed almost a thousand participants push their limits in a 1.9-kilometre swim, a scenic 90-kilometre bike ride, and a challenging 21.1-kilometre run. The iconic victors of the inaugural Plava Laguna Ironman 70.3 Poreč, Istria – Croatia were Paul Loiseaux from France and Veronika Andrlova from Czechia. Their victories echoed on the cobblestone streets of Poreč and the world of triathlon, setting a high bar for this year. 



For the 2023 edition, the bar is raised even higher. The organization is pulling out all stops, enhancing quality standards, and expecting an even larger turnout. But it's not just about the pros! On 14 October, a day prior to the main event, Poreč will be filled with the giggles and excitement of young champions. The IronKids race will light up the lanes of Poreč, giving children between 5 and 16 the golden opportunity to sprint their way to their first medals.
