Following on from a successful inaugral event in 2013, we are heading back to the Caribbean! There are three distances to choose from - each with Individual and Relay entries. Come and join us for an end the season luxury treat and race a triathlon on the beautiful, laid back island of St Lucia. We are expecting competitors to come from all over the world for this exciting event.

St Lucia is a very small British Caribbean Island, set in a lush tropical rain forest and remains very unspoilt. It's one of the Windward Islands, and it is located midway down the Eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St Vincent and north of Barbados. St Lucia is only 27 miles long and 14 miles wide.

The Atlantic Ocean laps its eastern shore, while the beaches of the west coast owe their beauty to the calm Caribbean. The triathlon is in the Caribbean Sea! A breathtaking scenic route with plenty of hills and partially closed roads will set the stage for healthy competition between the Caribbean Islands and the rest of the world.

Arrive at least five days early for a host of pre event parties together with activities (Aquathlon, Beach Run, Open Water Swim, Master Classes with Olympians as well as a pre race welcome party) in the week leading up to the main event – the triathlon, so make a holiday out of the event and bring your partner/ family or come on your own.

Leading Caribbean specialist Caribtours will, if required, create a bespoke travel and hotel accommodation package exclusively for you and travelling friends. Within the package you will have entry into the triathlon as well as the activities and social events. The package price also includes free bike carriage on the plane. Caribtours will talk you through the whole process.

Single people are especially welcome and there will be numerous social activities planned.

Furthermore a number of celebrities will be joining us in St. Lucia together with British Olympic legend Daley Thompson ( 2 Olympic Gold medals in Decathlon) and Steve Cram (Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth medalist).

One of the stated aims of the event is to support and grow triathlon in the Caribbean especially in St Lucia.

St. Lucia is a hilly volcanic island and we’ve designed a course which has some tough climbs on a multi lap course. Expect a challenging, hot bike ride, hence the shorter than normal distance rides.

The course will be arrowed and marshaled and the road surfaces are well maintained asphalt. The run course is a flat out and back loop to the old Fort on Pigeon island.
