This November athletes from all over the country will come together to participate in the Sahl Hashish Triathlon on Egypt’s Red Sea.

This year's Sahl Hashish Triathlon offers different a number of different competitions: the Super-sprint, Sprint, Olympic and Duathlon. Kids can also join in the fun with the 1km Kids’ Race. Events take place between 16 and 18 November.

Athletes will also be able to form relay teams for the Sprint and Olympic distances, allowing participants to compete in a specific sport and cross the finish line with friends and family.

Located around 18km south of Hurghada airport, Sahl Hashish bay is a popular resort for fans of snorkelling and diving, who come to experience its coral reefs.

The resort has also hosted triathlons since 2014, making it a destination for sports-lovers.

At the resort's first triathlon there were 200 participants, but in the most recent event, 750 participants of 32 different nationalities took part.

The triathlons are now held twice a year, and have seen participants from five years of age to 65.

The events are run by Egypt's TriFactory, a company that specialises in endurance sports, triathlons, and mass participation events, as well as providing training for athletes and facilitating sports-based travel.
