The Rainbow Beach Triathlon, now in its fifth year, will be held on the weekend of August 23 and 24, 2015.
The race gives participants the opportunity to race an Olympic distance triathlon, by completing two ‘sprint distance’ events, consisting of 750m swim/20km ride/5km run, over two consecutive days.
Swim will be ‘with the sweep’ of the current. At this stage it is expected that this will be a start at Rainbow Beach SLSC with the swim headed in the direction of Inskip Point. The swim will be one ‘lap’ of a ‘point-to-point’ swim.
It is family friendly and offers kids and adults the perfect introductory event to get into the world of triathlon. In 2015 the Active Kids and Active First Timers events will take place at the Rainbow Beach Pool Complex, providing a sheltered swim in the heated pool facility.
Participants can choose to enter either the ‘double’ race (ie Sat + Sun races), or just one of either the Saturday race or Sunday race. This race can be done either as an individual or as a team event.
Active kids race distances:
- 6-9 years – 100m swim, 3km bike, 500m run.
- 10-11 years – 200m swim, 5km bike, 1km run.
- Active First Timers/12-13 years – 200m swim, 6km bike, 2km run.
