Abu Dhabi International Triathlon
In 2014 you can start your Triathlon season with the Abu Dhabi Triathlon on March 15. Also competing will be superstar triathlon brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee who have confirmed they will open their 2014 season in Abu Dhabi. Also on the start list is the 2013 Ironman Kona world champion, the Belgian Frederick van Lierde. The Abu Dhabi International triathlon is your chance to stand side to side with triathlon's greatest athletes.
Next year’s Abu Dhabi International Triathlon marks its fifth anniversary, with a record number of entries and participants set to take part in the spectacular sporting experience. Although entries opened only one month ago, over 50% of places have already been snapped up, 40% of which to previous participants.
Starting in the shimmering turquoise waters off Abu Dhabi’s Blue Flagged public beach, the course will weave its way along the Corniche to the spectacular Yas Island and around the Yas Marina Circuit, home to the annual Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, before returning to the heart of the UAE capital.
The Abu Dhabi International Triathlon offers three course distances; the 223km ‘long course’ (3km swim, a 200km cycle and 20km run), the half-length ‘short’ course (1.5km swim, a 100km cycle and a 10 km run) and the sprint course (750m swim, a 50km bike and 5km run). Both the ‘short’ and the ‘sprint’ can be run as a team relay. Organisers have frozen athlete registration fees for the fifth year in a row.
