2014 Pineappleman Sprint Triathlon
The Pineappleman Sprint Triathlon is part of the annual Pineapple Festival schedule. We run our event Saturday morning and then party that night at the festival! There is live music, DJ (loud), good food, a bar and other events run during the day. The island of Eleuthera is beautiful! Great for training rides.
PACKET PICK UP: 5.30-7.00 p.m. at the race site the night before Friday June 6. This will save time on race day for all, and you can catch some of the festival. Bring some bug spray maybe if you're susceptible. (It's that time of day =) ) Early registratrants will have extras in their race bag!
THE COURSE: 500 meter swim on a triangle course marked by two buoys in the Gregory Town cove. Swimmers must be careful climbing out the staircase cut into the seawall. Transition swim to bike-stay right of the cone into transition, stay right of the cone exiting transition on your bike. Cyclists run 8 kilometers out to the incredible Glass Window Bridge (technical turnaround at traffic cone), then 8K back. A few climbs and descents feature as well as THE HILL near the start (and end) of the bike. Runners go 5K also climbing the hill out and back to the Cove Resort's entrance as the turnaround.
