Triathlon Thursday night sprints start this week

Swimmers prepare for the Thursday Nights Sprints Triathlon at Clearwater Beach

The Bermuda Triathlon Association's Thursday Night Sprints season starts this week.

Held at Clearwater Beach, participants compete in a 200m swim, an 8km bike ride and 2km run, although there are shorter distances available for the juniors.

Racing will take place each week at 6.30pm sharp between May 11 and September 14. There will, however, be no action on May 25 , June 15 and August 3.

Steven Petty, president of the Bermuda Triathlon Association is delighted about the upcoming season.

“Thursday Night Sprints are designed to be fun and social triathlon races,” he said.

“The atmosphere at Clearwater is very supportive with friendly competition encouraged. It is a great opportunity for newcomers to the sport to test their skills and gain experience whilst racing against some more experienced triathletes.

Triathletes over the age of seven (age as at December 31 2023) wishing to participate must register online, with the entry fee for each race being $10. An option is there to sign up for the entire season for $150. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the season.

You must be Registered or to post comment or to vote.
