Volunteers urged to sign up for big race

  • Flora Duffy celebrates winning last year's race

Bermuda is preparing to host the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Triathlon Series Bermuda for a second time and you can now register to be involved.

On Saturday, April 27, Hamilton will be the venue once again for the televised international sporting event, with the signature blue carpet finish line on Front Street, the scene of Bermudian two-times ITU World Triathlon Series World Champion Flora Duffy’s victory last year in front of her adoring home crowd.

This will be the second of three annual World Series Triathlon events that Bermuda will host; in 2021 the island will be home to the ITU Grand Final and Age Group World Championships.

“Everyone in Bermuda can participate in the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda Festival Weekend; as a racer, a volunteer or as a spectator,” said Pat Phillip-Fairn, WTSBDA spokesperson and chief product and experiences development officer of the Bermuda Tourism Authority.

Registration for racing is open to individuals and group relays by visiting the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda 2019 website.

“We look forward to seeing many local relay teams; corporate groups and friends who are running, cycling and swimming enthusiasts,” Phillip-Fairn added. “We wish to again thank our title sponsor MS Amlin and all main sponsors, Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, BF&M, BTA, NTT and The Royal Gazette, for continuing their involvement in 2019.”
