Information Sessions For ITU Triathlon Bermuda

January 22, 2018 | 0 Comments

Organisers of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Bermuda – which will be part of a weekend of festivities in Hamilton from April 26th to 29th — will present information about the event in a series of public meetings this week.

A one-hour presentation will cover details of the triathlon racecourses, related road closures, alternative routes into Hamilton throughout the event and traffic management. The sessions will also cover volunteer opportunities during the three-day Bermuda Triathlon Festival Weekend.

The Elite race that ITU World Champion and Bermudian Flora Duffy will compete in, and the Age Group amateur race anticipated to attract hundreds of runners, will both be on Saturday April 28th.

The community is invited to attend the information sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday this week, particularly those residents and businesses who are positioned on or near the racecourse. Course maps are provided to remind people which roads will be used for the event.
