The island of Saint Lucia will stage an inaugural International triathlon event supported by double Olympic gold medal winner and British athletics legend, Daley Thompson.
Launching the event on the island on November 23, Daley will act as Ambassador for the triathlon, joining competitors as they ready themselves for the start.
The Saint Lucia Triathlon 2013 will be the culmination of a week-long festival of fun activities hosted by Tri St Lucia and the Saint Lucia Tourist Board, including an ocean swim, an aquathon (swim and run) and a beach run. Designed with all ages and fitness levels in mind, the activities will provide holidaymakers with a taste of the overall triathlon event, offering families, couples and single people the opportunity to take part.
With three separate competitive distances available, the course includes a swim in the clear waters of Pigeon Island Bay, a run across some of Saint Lucia’s tough hilly volcanic topography and a challenging bike ride.
Caribtours can create bespoke travel and hotel packages for UK travellers looking to take part. Packages will include triathlon entry and entry into a number of other events such as the beach swim, the beach run and an Aquathlon. Travellers booking via the operator will also be able to attend a number of island receptions including a pre-race party, a post event BBQ with prize giving and a boat trip for all competitors. Airport transfers and free bike carriage on the flights are also available.
