International Triathlon Elite Competition

Challenging One’s Own Limits

Every May, in the Liyu Lake area, the East Rift Valley National Scenic Area and Hualien County Government jointly sponsor the "Round Trip Hueilan International Triathlon Elite Competition". This is the only competition of its kind in the whole of Taiwan, and the entire route is closed up for competition use. This activity integrates exercise and bodybuilding with tourism, and has become a regular, internationalized activity. It always attracts close to 

1,000 participants from many other countries, who come either to compete or to visit, making this an exceptionally grand occasion.

The "International Triathlon Elite Competition" involves the closing of traffic for the entire route. The competition route starts at Liyu Lake, and goes on to the Guangrong District. Competitors begin at the north jetty of Liyu Lake. They must swim 1.5 kilometers, cycle 40 kilometers, and run 10 kilometers. In order to finish, they must complete a standard route of 51.1 kilometers of endurance. This competition differs from the average sports competition, in that anyone who completes the course is seen as the victor. This provides the competitors with a stage for self-affirmation, and in recent years, this activity has come to be seen in a very positive light.
