The 2017 Island House Triathlon will take place at Highbourne Cay in the Bahamas on 17th – 18th November. It will be staged as three events over the course of two days, awarding $500,000 in prize money.
There are four British women taking part: Leanda Cave, Rachel Joyce, Holly Lawrence and Emma Pallant. Sadly, the only British male entrant, Tim Don, has had to withdraw following an accident a short while ago.
The format of this event is really interesting. There will be a super sprint time trial and an enduro race (run, swim, bike, run, swim, bike, run) on the first day. Then there’s a sprint pursuit on the second day.
I think it’ll be really inspiring to watch. Does anyone know if it will be possible to see it live in the UK?
Thank you to everyone who’s voted for Fat Girl to Ironman so far – there’s still time to cast your vote in The 2018 Running Awards.
