What a great year it has been for sports lovers with the Olympics providing fantastic excitement! Why not celebrate an Olympic year and take part in the challenging St Lucia triathlon?  Even better, there will be an opportunity to work out with former Olympian, Daley Thompson.

The Digicel St Lucia International Triathlon will be held on 19th November. This is preceded by a 7-days festival of fun activities hosted by Tri St Lucia.  Included is a 2km ocean swim, an aquathlon (swim and run) and a beach run. There are also master classes in swimming and running to help triathletes improve their techniques. The event, with a strong Pirate theme, has 3 separate competitive distances including:

• The Dagger: 200m swim, 6.6km bike, 2.5km run

• The Pistol: 750m swim, 13.2km bike, 5km run

• The Cutlass: 1500m swim, 26.4km bike, 10km run

The course includes a swim in the crystal clear waters of Rodney Bay, followed by a tough hilly and challenging bike ride and finally the run loop to Pigeon Island and back.

It is worth noting that two exhilarating children’s events have been organised:

8-10 year olds: 100m swim, an 800m bike and an 800m run

12-16 year olds: aquathlon, 200m swim and 800m run
