The Bacardi TriRock Bermuda Triathlon will be the first international triathlon race in the TriRock Series and will take place on local shores on Nov. 3.
It will be the eighth race on the TriRock calendar and will consist of both male and female competitors on a sprint course.
“On behalf of the Bermuda Department of Tourism, we are very excited to be a lead sponsor of the inaugural Bacardi TriRock Bermuda Triathlon,” said Billy Griffith, Director of Tourism. “We welcome all of our overseas visitors to our shores. With direct flights averaging less than two hours from the east coast and Toronto, Bermuda is the perfect place to train, compete or simply relax.”
The race begins on Sunday morning with a swim in the waters of the protected cove of East Whale Bay at the Fairmont Southampton’s Beach Club.
The bike and run courses will be along South Road, providing one of the most scenic sprint triathlon courses in the sport.
Race weekend caps off on Sunday evening with the ‘Bacardi After Party’ at the Bacardi worldwide headquarters building on Pitts Bay Road.
All legal drinking age participants will receive a finisher’s medal, technical T-shirt, red carpet finish, post-race breakfast and access to a post-race concert.
“Bermuda is the ideal destination to launch our first international event in the TriRock Triathlon Series and we know participants will enjoy their race and vacation in paradise,” said Molly Quinn, vice-president of Triathlon at Competitor Group, organizer of the TriRock Triathlon Series.
