Tri groups, bike clubs, running clubs and races in Spain

I am moving to Barcelona, Spain in less than a week. Here in the
states, I am very active in my tri club. I am looking to get involved
in a tri club over there.  I am also looking for local running & bike
clubs; as well as race sites, so I can plan my season. I have a June
IronMan and would like to get some 1/2's and other distance races in
before June. I would also like to hook up with some training partners.
Thanks for your help! Oh Yeah, can anyone tell me a bit about Setmana
Catalana? Where does it begin & end. I would love to catch a glimpse
of it all!

Sorry this pages are in the local language. You better get used to it :-)

This page has some links to running clubs in the area :

Some races scheduled for the year :

This should be the official page of the Setmana Catalana, unfortunately they
dont seem to
talk about the 2003 edition

AFAIK most swimming clubs have their own triathlon section. I would suggest
doing your search
once you have actually moved, since you may want to look for a club that is
really near where you live.

I hope you can use this as a starting point.
