The glittering coastline known as the Athenian Riviera hosted dozens of elite athletes for the premier XTERRA off-road triathlon event. With the sun beating down and water temperatures around 17 degrees the swim leg started with the 300 athletes heading into the Vouliagmeni bay. The bike route looked easy but actually proved extremely challenging with dry and slippery tracks. The running course around Vouliagmeni Lake offered the athletes some spectacular scenic views as they ran long the edge of the sea.
