Floating stage

The race starts in the bay of Imereti port, enclosed by two malls and protected from waves and wind. The water temperature here is two degrees higher than in the open sea, and in the velvet season, it sometimes rises to 25 °C. Wetsuits for participants of this distance are allowed at a water temperature below 22 °C.

Bicycle stage

The cycle race begins in the resort area "Imeretinsky" and leaves on the picturesque mountain route Adler - Krasnaya Polyana. You have to make a long climb and downhill, but before that, you will make a circle on the track "Formula 1" - there is no such opportunity at any other start.

Running stage

The running stage runs along the embankment of the Black Sea - to the lighthouse and back.

Our methods

Improve your swimming via the total immersion technique. You don’t have to be strong to swim for long, but effective. We adapted our methods under triathlon by adding working off your actions during the start, learning to orientate in open waters and swimming in the wetsuit.


A serious approach to the road cycling trainings which will improve your results and ensure you complete the distance safe and sound.


The trainings are based on the natural run technique which focuses on the body position and foot placement. Specifically for the triathlon, we have the bicycle+running trainings to prepare the sportsmen for the hardest transition during any triathlon race.

Transit zones

We will teach you how to get through the transit zones as quickly as possible, by teaching how to go get out of the wetsuit in a moment and prepare your place in it before the race in order not to lose any time.

Triathlon trips

The smallest details are crucial in triathlon. We teach what critical to take for the race and what can be left at home. Show you lifehacks on how to pack your triathlon bag, teach to manage your cycle during traveling.
