The weekend of 3 and 4 September 2011 will see the launch of a unique triathlon event – the Goldcross Cycles Rainbow Beach Triathlon. The weekend offers triathletes the opportunity to race an Olympic distance triathlon over two days by completing 2 x ‘sprint distance’ events of 750m swim/20km ride/5km run in consecutive days.
This event has something for everyone. For the younger members of the family, the Active Kids Triathlon will enable them to ‘compete’ in their own, age appropriate event. The fun and friendly format of the Active Kids Triathlon is participation focused, with all competitors receiving a specially minted medallion and cap as they complete their race. For those who are a little older (14 years +) or young at heart and would like to have a go at a triathlon themselves, there will be the Active First Timers event.
The weekend comprises of:
Saturday 3 September 2011
· Race 1: 750m/20km/5km
· Active Kids Triathlon (race run in age groups)
· Active First Timers Triathlon
Sunday 4 September 2011
