Registrations begin for TriYAS presented by Adnoc
TriYAS presented by Adnoc 2021 is back on following recent government approvals – all athletes wishing to take part can now register for the event, which takes place on Friday, Oct.15 at Yas Marina Circuit.
Always a huge highlight on the Abu Dhabi calendar, this year’s event was originally due to take place in February.
With a new date now confirmed, participants can sign up in advance to take advantage of a fantastic early-bird discount. This will be in place until Wednesday Sept.15, allowing entrants to make a saving of 10 per cent.
Entrants who registered for the original date will have their place automatically secured for the new date.
Now in its 11th year, TriYAS attracts competitors to put their bodies through a challenging physical test made up of three elements – swimming, cycling and running.
There are nine separate categories at this year’s event, including the brand-new Duathlon Sprint, which involves a 5KM run and a 21KM bike ride, before coming to a conclusion with another run, this time over a 2.5KM distance.
Those entrants wishing to compete on an individual basis can choose from Sprint, Olympic or Super Sprint categories, but if you would prefer to be involved as part of a group, choose from Sprint Team Relay or Olympic Team Relay options.
There will also be a Junior Triathlon, for ages 12 to 16 years, which involves a 200-metre swim, 9.9KM bike ride and 2.5KM run
The 2020 instalment of the event was a huge success and played host to the highest number of Emirati competitors in TriYAS history, as well as the largest number of youth participants.
Sponsored by ADNOC and National Ambulance, TriYAS is always a fun-filled day in the sun, providing members of the local community, and beyond, with an opportunity to push their bodies to the limit and achieve personal goals.
The action begins with the first event at 6.20am and there will be a break between the morning and afternoon sessions due to the high temperatures.
Participants will be able to collect Race Packs at TrainYAS on Tuesday Oct.12 between 6pm and 9pm.
Registrations will close on Tuesday Oct.12.
The event will be open to spectators who are able to provide a green pass.
