Bermuda Triple Challenge Is One Week Away

March 6, 2015

A week to go and the Bermuda Triple Challenge is ramping up. Now in its fourth year, many are already familiar with the obstacle course charity weekend, where the obstacles and routes are largely unknown to participants beforehand.

Co-organizers Jason Correia and Dr. Reid Robinson explain, “We have had tremendous support from our corporate sponsors ACE Group, KRyS Global, Argus, and Butterfield & Vallis.

“It has allowed us to offer up some fun innovative obstacles, plus $3,000 in prizes. Even the Bermuda Regiment has stepped up its support in their 50th anniversary year to develop some very exciting new physical challenges for their assault course.”

“Above all, we want everyone from the fitness buff to the couch-to-5K hopeful to enjoy themselves and support our local charities who volunteer their time to marshal the courses. Friday night’s Argus Urban Foot Race closes with a community block party in King’s Square for the entire community to enjoy.

:There will be a DJ, fun castle for the kids, plus a mechanical bucking bull will be on hand for a ride. We’d like to see people come down to St. Georges cheer on the participants, have some fun at the block party and support the area restaurants.”

“On Sunday after the ACE Group Royal Challenge the weekend closes with a participant appreciation brunch hosted by Butterfield & Vallis and Buzz. DJ Vibes will also be on hand, so sit back and relax and share the experience with your fellow competitors. When it’s all over stick around and enjoy the Bermuda Karting Club’s Dockyard Grand Prix which will be going on in the background.”

“New this year thanks to the support of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, we welcome two guest professional obstacle course racers. With their help we hope to catapult the Bermuda Triple Challenge weekend into a premier sports tourism event drawing enthusiasts from around the world.

“Spartan sponsored athletes Matt and Tiffanie Novakovich, a husband and wife team are used to running in the mud and snow, but we’ve assured them running in the pink sand and dunes along the aqua blue south shore for the KRyS Global Island Challenge will invigorate them. They are looking forward to the challenge.”
