Description:

2013 PineappleMan Triathlon:

  • The race runs in conjunction with the annual Pineapple Festival, which runs all weekend and features food, drink, games, live music and some endurance races!
  • A beautiful location on Gregory Town's cove the festival celebrates the area's pineapple farmers.
  • The music doesn't stop until the wee hours.
  • The race was reintroduced to the festival schedule, after an absence of a few years, in 2006. It has continued to grow each year, but maintains it's fun-but-competitive nature.
  • Course Information:

    Swim:
  • The 500 meter triangle swim course is surrounded by the limestone cliffs of the Gregory Town cove.
  • This leeward cove is usually flat calm and perfect for swimming but can get choppy if a westerly wind picks up.

    Transition area:
  • The transition area is up the steps (careful!) and just to the right.

    Bike:
  • The bike loop will now be out to the Glass Window Bridge (one of the Bahamas' natural wonders) and back.
  • Only climb 'The Hill' twice! (Run remains the same).
  • So the bike is now 16K, longer but maybe a tad easier.

    Run:
  • The 5 kilometer run course once again heads north out of town to the turnaround at the Cove Resort entrance.
  • The Hill is climbed a total of two more times.
  • You can encourage and keep an eye on your fellow competitors on the out-and-back loops, a design which a lot of our racers enjoy!
  • Directions:

  • Eleuthera can be reached directly from both Miami International Airport (American Airlines) and Fort Lauderdale Airport (Continental and Twin Air).
  • Gregory Town is closest to ELH and GHB airports on the northern end of Eleuthera.
  • You can also travel through Nassau and take a ferry from there.
  • Please email Tom for further travel information and information about accomodations.
