This from Alec Shepherd :
I want to encourage you all to sign up for the Digicel Bermuda Trifest race on Sunday April 9th. The Age Group race starts at 8am before the elite Continental Cup races get under way, and features a swim in Hamilton Harbour in front of No 1 car park, a fast bike through the city streets and a run along Front St. It is a sprint distance (750m/20k/5k) so well within the capabilities of all. Sign up is available now at racedayworld.
Being an ITU event and taking place in Hamilton, the race also requires more than the usual number of volunteers, in particular to make the bike course safe. I would like to ask a special favour : can you all please find at least 1 volunteer this week from among your family and friends who will definitely be free and willing to help on the day, and let me know their name and contact number? Volunteers will be needed for some or all of the period 7am-1pm on the day. They are crucial to the success of the event.
I know this is quite a big ask, so if you can find people to help, it would be hugely appreciated. If people you know like volunteering for events like these, it is worth mentioning that volunteers will also be needed for the much bigger World Triathlon Series (WTS) event taking place here in April 2018, for which this race will provide excellent experience.
