Baza hosted the inaugural edition of the Super Sprint Duathlon Relay. This new type of Duathlon was held in Andalusia for the first-time. It was won by Tijola Ociodeporte Baza in the men's category and the Atarfe CD Triclub babyschool team women in the female category. Juanillo Cano and Pablo Carricondo were the winning teams. Alejandro Salmeron was also part of the winning team. Ana Mayordomo and Sandra Perez won the feminine.
Baza started his adventure in Super Sprint Duathlon Relay mode in a positive manner.
Each member of each team had to cover a distance of 2km on foot, 8km on bicycle, and 1km on foot. This modality has short, explosive distances and is designed to stop the clock as quickly as possible.
This test took place in the Fuente del Alcrebite. It was an area where a circuit was built that was well received by participants. The circuit caused minimal interference to the circulatory mobility in Bastetan, with the exception of the Benamaurel section that saw traffic jams for many hours. The race was conducted in absolute normality because it was a residential area.
This first edition saw 38 teams participate, with approximately 115 participants coming from the provinces Almeria and Jaen as well as Malaga, Malaga, Granada, and Malaga. Teams could choose to participate in both the open and federated categories. Six men's and six women's teams participated in the federated event. They were competing for cash prizes. All the other participants participated in the open mode, male and female.
The judges of the Andalusian triathlon Federation managed the race and oversaw the smooth operation of the event.
