The 2016 Microgaming Triathlon Festival Weekend will be held over the weekend of Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th April at the Ramsey Swimming Pool.
This is a great season opener event over the classic sprint distance of 750m Swim / 20k Cycle & 5k Run, and being a Pool based swim is ideal for the 1st time triathlete. The Swim is 30 lengths of the Pool, the 20k Cycle course goes out towards Bride, through Andreas and back to Ramsey and then the 5k run is based in and around the picturesque setting of the Mooragh Park.
Like last year, the Individuals will race on the Saturday and then the Team Challenge day will be on the Sunday. This gives any Individuals competing on the Saturday the opportunity to also race on the Sunday with their friends, family or colleagues. Teams of 2 or 3 may enter.
The minimum age is 15 years (based on the age at 31st December 2016).

We need about 25 marshals to run this event and as a small club, we are asking all entrants (who are Island residents) to nominate a marshal. This can be anyone over the age of 18 yrs. Obviously not all the nominated marshals will be required, but we will advise those who are as soon as possible and training will be given. It's only a couple of hours, and is a great event to watch and be involved in.
