TriStar International, for the first time in the Middle East, in partnership with Super Sports Events, will be launching a triathlon hosted by the award-winning 5 Star Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah, UAE. TriStar triathlons are bike-centric triathlons where the emphasis is on a longer and more challenging bike ride with a shorter swim and run leg. The international race Series is co-owned by none other than Fabian Cancellara, Olympic Champion, TT World Champion as well as Paris Roubaix winner. He will be present and race as well! The course offers an Indian Ocean open water swim and an undulating, power-sapping bike course; some steep climbs through the majestic Hajar mountains and then along the scenic coastline, offering a unique experience unlike any before in the UAE. The out and back flat run course will send the competitors along the ocean line to cross the finish line at the famous Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort where a scrumptious lunch BBQ and awards ceremony will conclude TriStar Fujairah 2018.
TriStar Fujairah Triathlon Race Numbers – 23 March 2018
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 their 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.
