Pre-Phuket Event 13-Nov

Registration is now open for our last event of the year, the longer pre-Phuket race held in Shek-O. Event details are: 900m Swim, 35km Bike and 8km Run. Register here

This equates to 3 loops of the pontoons with a beach run in-between each. A ride up the Shek-O hill to the Tai Tam round-about, with a loop back to Cape d’Aguillar/Tai Tam roundabout, before heading back down the hill into Shek-O. And the run is 2 loops of Big Wave Bay and back.

Now, before all you ‘newbies’ get put off by these distances, our races are all about participation and fun. Thus, with the swim, if you are only capable of doing 1 loop, then just do one loop. Likewise with the ride and run. We’d rather see you turning up and giving it a bash, than staying home with a hang-over.

Also, to add some spice to our last event of the year, we have invited 10 of the Tritons along for a little interclub friendly competition. So, the times for the first 3 women and first 7 men across the line (from each team) will be accumulated. The lowest overall time is the Team winner.

As it is the last race, please don’t dash off. We’ll have a small BBQ with some sausages, chilled beers etc, so we can all hang around for a social and watch the main event of the day, the Dragons Kids Mini-Tri.
