Everything You Need to Know About Competing in the Cayman Islands Triathlon

cayman islands eventsThe components of a classic triathlon are all the same; you run, bike, and swim as you compete against your division or try to beat your personal best time. However, the Cayman Islands Triathlon is probably a little bit different than any you have competed in or heard of before— it’s in paradise! Compete under gorgeous palms, on white sand, and through crystal clear water.

Which Should I Participate In?

Athletes have a choice of two race distances. You can either participate in the shorter Sprint Triathlon or the longer Olympic Distance. If you choose the Olympic Distance, you can either race on your own or create a team of two to three people.

When and Where Is the Event?

This annual event usually takes place in early November, but you can always check the events page on the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association website for the exact date! In the past, it has been held at Public Beach on Seven Mile Beach. This beach has playground equipment for kids and comfy cabanas so the entire family can watch the competition. Check-in begins at 6:00 a.m. and the races begin at exactly 6:45 a.m., so make sure you give yourself enough time!
