ST GEORGE’S, March 22, 2013 – Triathletes from around the region will begin assembling in Grenada in the coming days to participate in the Digicel Tri de Spice at Port Louis on Easter Sunday.
And for the first time, athletes from Venezuela will be heading to the spice isle to challenge Grenada’s best including Chris Regis who is currently in Chile competing in his first two professional races, the Vina Mar and Coquimbo Pan American Continental Cups.
Athletes will be competing for the very unique, hand crafted trophies that have made the Tri de Spice famous as well as cash and other prizes totalling over $15,000.00.
There are a total of seven different courses for athletes to choose from based on age and skill level ranging from very easy for first timers to the Insurance Consultants Olympic distance race for the most competitive athletes.
Competitors also have the option to compete in relay teams. “We will once again have the Republic Bank Right Start Inter-school Triathlon Championships. School children of all ages will not only be competing for top honours in their various categories but also to find out which school has the number one triathletes in Grenada,” according to a Press Release from the organisers.
There is no cost for registration for school children of any age but registration must be done well in advance.
All races start and finish at Port Louis, with the bike and run taking place along the Kirani James Boulevard and the Carenage. The adult races start at 8:30 a.m. and the junior races will be held in the afternoon with the first race starting at 1:00 p.m.
The organisers say that they are also looking for anyone interested in volunteering since there are many roles for volunteers.
