Competing in the Cayman Islands Triathlon
The Cayman Islands Triathlon is just like any other triathlon with running, biking, and swimming portions. However, this will probably be a little bit different than any you have competed in before, because it is in paradise! Compete under gorgeous palms, white sand, and a shining sun. Athletes have a choice of 2 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 2-3 people.
The 2017 Cayman Islands Triathlon will occur November 6th at Public Beach. This beach has playground equipment for kids and comfy cabanas, so the entire family can come watch the competition. Check-in begins at 6 AM and the races begin at exactly 6:45 AM, so make sure you give yourself enough time!
Registering for the Cayman Islands Triathlon
The most important thing to know about registering for the Cayman Islands Triathlon is that there is no athlete registration on race day, so make sure you sign up in advance. You also have to be a member of the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association. All you have to do is fill out a simple membership form and $15 to the association. Volunteer hours at a CITA event are welcome and encouraged, but not necessary!
After the Cayman Islands Triathlon
After the Cayman Islands Triathlon, athletes, friends, and family all gather at Duke’s Seafood and Rib Shack. Here, you can meet other participants, and share stories about the battles of the race. Post-race ceremonies will be held and awards given. Enjoy good food, drinks, and the aftermath of friendly competition!
