2XU TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017/18 – HATTA

24 Nov 2017

Super Sprint | Sprint | Olympic

8am Start, Hatta, Dubai, UAE

(No Wet Suits)

Join us for the inaugural and most action-packed triathlon the UAE has to offer. The spectacular scenery with a nature-based course of dams, hills, mountains and wadis will also make this a triathlon to remember. SWIM in Hatta Dam, BIKE over Generator Hill, and RUN the Steepest incline through breathtaking wadis. Not for the faint-hearted, this will be one of the toughest triathlons and will test you to your limits.

Lots of aid stations, supporters and camaraderie amongst the athletes will make this a special one.

Open to relay teams of 2 or 3 athletes. We also offer a discount on Family and Group Entries.

A MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANISERS

Most triathletes come to races with only a basic understanding of the rules of triathlon. Indeed, few have ever read through the Competitive Rules in there entirety. As this event is a community orientated event where we wish to offer all interested individuals of all ages and abilities the opportunity to compete in a triathlon, we rely on athletes to be as honest and as understanding as possible throughout all parts of the event in order for all to have an enjoyable experience on the day and in future races. In order to minimize misunderstandings on Race Day, I hope you will take the time to read the below details and look forward to seeing you at the race.
