Caribbean Classic Triathlon Changes Course to Cramer’s Park

In order to take advantage of the newly paved roads by Cramer’s Park, the Caribbean Classic Triathlon will now be held there on Nov. 8, instead of the Buccaneer Hotel.

The Olympic Distance race will feature a 1500-meter, two-lap swim, a 24-mile bike ride that will head down the South Shore Road, go over Lowry Hill, turn right at Southgate, again climb Lowry Hill, then head back to Cramer’s on the North Shore Road. The 6.2-mile run will begin with a lap around the park, then heading out .6 mile on the new surface of the road toward Point Udall, then return past the park to make a turn around at the intersection of the North Shore Road. The second lap of the two-loop course will be identical to the first.
The Sprint Distance course will start with 750-meter one loop of the swim course, follow with the first loop of the bike, which is 17 miles and conclude with a 3.1-mile loop on the run.
For the first time, the Virgin Islands Triathlon Federation will name National Triathlon Champions at the Caribbean Classic Triathlon (CCT).
The top male and female finishers, who must also be members of the VITF, will be crowned as individual champions. The race will also count as a points race for the overall VI Triathlon Point Series, the winners of which will get free entry into the 2010 St. Croix Ironman 70.3.
The races will start at 7 a.m. All athletes are asked to pre-register at Stamina Sports.
