The Dubai leg of the series is the grand final and is taking place at Jebel Ali Recreation Club on Saturday, September 15
Great news for endurance sports lovers – the Ironstar Indoor Triathlon series is back in Dubai.
The Ironstar Indoor Triathlon Series 2018, Dubai, is a series of triathlon races with a twist – they’re organised indoors.
Its special feature is that participants are challenged to race in the time given as far as they can. It’s a format that is amazing for both newcomers who are just getting into triathlon and experienced athletes.
The Dubai leg of the series is the grand final and is taking place at Jebel Ali Recreation Club on Saturday, September 15.
There is still time to sign up for the grand final which also includes a buffet dinner (spectators may reserve dinner by e-mailing to organisers).
Participants can race individually in male or female categories (above 18 years) or as part of a relay team. Each member of a team will start and finish simultaneously, and will swim or bike or run for 30 minutes.
Every finisher will get a medal and the top three males, females and teams will get trophies as well as superb gifts and presents from race partners.
Besides this there will be special awards for the overall 2018 series winners at the grand final in the UAE in two age groups (18-39 and 40+).
The names of two male, two female athletes and one team winner will be announced on September 15, based on performance at a minimum of three races of the summer series (teams must consist of the same athletes at each race to be eligible to win the overall series).
One champion is already known, with Sebastian Herzig having won three out of four races making him uncatchable. In the meantime there’s plenty of intrigue in other age groups as well as in the relay teams category where the champions will be named next Saturday.
The Jebel Ali event is the culmination of a long summer of competing, with a race held in each month from May-September.
The race format for individual athletes includes a 10-minute swim in a swimming pool (25 meters), 30 minutes on a stationary bike and a 20 minute run on a treadmill.
For teams the swim, bike and run are 30 minutes, with all team members starting at the same time.
The race schedule on the day runs as follows: 13:00-13:30 registration for individual athletes; 13:30-13:50 briefing for individuals; 14:00-17:40 waves for individuals; 16:30-17:15 teams registration; 17:20-17:40 teams briefing; 17:50-18:20 teams waves; 18:30-19:00 awards ceremony; 19:00-20:00 post race dinner and celebration.
