Sprint Triathlon is ideal for those competitors who are new to the sport or those who are just into speed. The venue in the beautiful sea front of Limassol is made to order to offer just that. Also this distance offers a good opportunity for corporate relay participation.
The event is complemented by a Super Sprint triathlon which is a great introduction into the world of triathlons and bridges the gap between novice and Sprint triathlons.
Only a few days remain until Limassol Triathlon. We kindly ask you to check if the information in the Final Start List is correct. In case you think that something is wrong please notify us before Friday the 2nd of November 2018. There will be no changes in the morning of the race.

We draw your attention to the turnaround points and the mount/ dismount area where you must be especially careful. Slow down as needed to be safe to yourself and the other competitors.
· Where do I put the chip?
The chip should be exposed (image). If you are using a wetsuit please leave the timing chip exposed. Make sure to hand it over to the official at the finish line after you finish the race. An additional timing chip is behind your race number. Please do not remove. Fix the bib number on a race belt. Turn on the back for the bike section. Turn in front for the run section. No race belt is provided by the organisers. You must bring your own. There will be a limited number of Race Belts on sale on the race morning.
