The Bank of Bermuda Foundation Triathlon, the oldest race on the Bermuda calendar, gets underway this Sunday 28th September at Ordnance Island, St. George.
The adult race starts at 9AM with athletes racing individually and in teams over 750 meter swim, 20km bike and 5km run. Mark Wilcox and former winner of the event Neil de ste Croix will start as favorites on the men’s side with multiple times winner Karen Smith starting as the favorite. Laurie Orchard has not been far behind Karen in races this year so will be hoping to go one better on Sunday. Amber Mehta has had a great season and will be battling it out with Belinda Castree and Julia Hawley for that third podium position. There will also be some close competition for age group honours.
The race will be preceded by junior triathlons starting at 8AM. Juniors will race over various distances according to age categories including a junior advanced distance for 13-15 year olds that will include many of our outstanding juniors such as Mathew Oliviera, Cameron De Ste Croix, Rebecca Harrison and Alyssa Rowse.
