Pep rally to launch MS Amlin Bermuda
With three weeks to go before the second MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda, organisers are inviting the public to participate in a fun pep rally at City Hall at lunchtime on Tuesday.
The event will mark the kick-off of this year’s race, scheduled for April 27, and will also celebrate Bermuda’s young triathletes. Comedian Nadanja will act as MC of the half-hour rally, which will start at 12.30pm.
Special guests will include Maria Duffy, mother of Flora Duffy, the two-times world champion and Commonwealth Games gold medal-winner, and some of Bermuda’s Carifta triathlon team. There will also be a performance from the Jump Rope Federation, as well as music and giveaways. Information will be available about the full schedule of events, from the opening ceremony to the final day of shopping festivities and organisers will be on hand to help sign up volunteers for those who wish to be involved.
The MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda will be even bigger than last year with more than 100 elite athletes racing for Olympic qualifying points and to experience the incredible atmosphere of Hamilton on race day.
Organisers are expecting more than 600 athletes to participate in the weekend festival.
The MS Amlin World Triathlon will be the second of three annual World Series Triathlon events that Bermuda will host. In 2021 the island will be home to the ITU Grand Final and Age Group World Championships.
