The sprint race in 2017 is the shortest of the Sunday races, and is a great distance for novice triathletes to begin competing at. Additionally, you still get to finish across the same iconic blue carpet as the Elites in Millennium Square.
The open races are likely attract more experienced triathletes, but don’t worry though, if you’re a first timer or new to the sport, regardless of whether you enter the Sprint or Standard distance, the open races are set to be a fun and accessible event for all ages and abilities to take part in, and you can be assured that there will be plenty of other triathletes of a similar ability to you taking part.
