World Triathlon Bermuda Event Schedule

February 28, 2019

Bermuda residents and visitors can look forward to a full schedule of events, activities and entertainment from April 25th to April 28th this year, celebrating the 2019 MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda.

Starting on Thursday April 25th, the Opening Ceremony at the flagpole on Front Street will feature Bermuda’s young athletes and great local entertainers. The family-focused evening continues into a Pasta Party and a special Triathlon Festival Harbour Nights. Hamilton retailers will also be open for late night shopping on that Thursday.

Front Street is the venue on Friday night April 26th for the RenaissanceRe Kids Duathlon at 6.30pm, where youngsters from 7 to 15 years old will compete, running and cycling in age groups, and can experience the World Series signature blue carpet finish line. Bermuda’s World Champion triathlete Flora Duffy will race through the same finish area the following day.

Saturday April 27th is Race Day when thousands of fans line the streets to witness the world’s best of the sport swim in Hamilton Harbour, bike up the challenging Corkscrew Hill and run through the city, including up Burnaby Hill.

The Amateur Age Group races begin at 7am with staggered starts throughout the morning. The Elite Men’s Race starts at 1pm and Elite Women’s Race at 4pm.

Flora Duffy will race on home soil again this year to defend her title, after a record-breaking win in 2018. Bermuda will again be in the international spotlight with global media coverage as we host the second of the International Triathlon Union [ITU] World Series circuit.

After the excitement of the racing, Front Street will transform into a party zone as the Digicel After-Race Fete will celebrate and round off the Race Day action.

The fun continues with Sunday’s Shopping Festival on April 28th when Hamilton retailers will open from 10am to 5pm, offering special in-store shopping experiences and prize draws for a shopping spree and travel vouchers.

WTSBDA Committee Chair, Pat Phillip-Fairn said; “The event schedule this year has something for everyone and we are encouraged by the collaboration of so many community partners who will contribute to the success of the event for the benefit of Bermuda.
