ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT NOON EST ON WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 5, 2014
How about a weekend in Bermuda to cap off your triathlon season? The Queen Triathlon Series is heading to Bermuda for its final race of the 2014 season! Come join us with your friends and family November 7-9 at the beautiful Fairmont Southampton Hotel for a long weekend of racing and relaxation on the pink beaches of this fantastic island.
Enjoy the 4-star luxury of our host hotel, with its world class Willow Stream Spa and great restaurants. Arrive on Friday afternoon (it's just a 2-hour flight from most east coast cities). That evening, at 6:00 p.m., Bacardi will host a cocktail reception at their headquarters in downtown Hamilton. All registered athletes will be transported by ferry from the Fairmont Hotel. Saturday's activities begin with yoga on Sands Beach, a bike ride to preview the course, an afternoon pre-race swim followed by a pre-race talk with one of the world's top professional triathletes.
Sunday morning the race is on! The swim will be held off the Fairmont Southampton's private beach in a protected cove. A scenic 12-mile bike course followed by a 3.1 mile run on the road above the beach makes for one of the most beautiful triathlon courses in the world!<p> Sunday afternoon you can relax on the beach or visit some of the sites of Bermuda, then celebrate your accomplishment with a Sunday night awards dinner for everyone. Then back to the real world on Monday!
We have special 2-night and 3-night accomodation packages at the Fairmont Southampton. Registration will be limited to 500 participants, so don't delay in registering for the race and booking your hotel. We recommend that you book your airline reservations early and bring your bike with you - there are no bikes to rent on Bermuda, and you cannot ship your bike to the race (due to customs and duty restrictions). Before making your airline reservation, be sure to check the cost to bring your bike with you. (Some airlines charge more for your bike than they do for your ticket.) We'll have bike mechanics available to help you reassemble your bike before the race, and to disassemble it to bring home.
So what are you waiting for? Make it a girls' weekend or bring your family to cheer you on!
