The big event is almost here, and the island of St Croix is ready if the athletes are. Today at 5 PM they meet in Christiansted on the boardwalk for a live event in front of the Harbor Cam.
This is supposedly one of the toughest triathlons, up, down, and around St Croix’s rugged hilly terrain. It is actually a Half-Ironman Triathlon distance, still with a swim, bike, and run but half the distance of the Ironman.
The event is sponsored by RumRunners, St. Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures, Divi Surfside Spa, Cruzan Rum, Cafe Fresco, Namaste Cafe, and The Reef Golf Course.
