“Aspire Triathlon GMC TriSeries Doha”, Qatar’s leading triathlon that brings people of all ages and fitness levels together, to kick off with a special open event at Aspire Zone with a practice triathlon event called ‘TRY-A-TRI’ on 14 November 2015. TRY-A-TRI is designed to introduce triathlons to new participants, allowing individuals to complete the course in a non-competitive environment, providing a training opportunity for those who are new to triathlons.
This fun race will be customizable. Participants will be able to decide how many laps they would like to swim (50m pool), cycle (5km lap) or run (1.25km.)
This will be followed by 3 competitive races in November, February and April. Races will take place at the new Hamad Aquatic Centre pool, with bike and running courses traversing the greater Aspire Zone precinct.
In the past two seasons, the organizers have welcomed sold-out fields to many of the biggest stages of each season. The format has become extremely popular and this season even more is on offer for both the competitive and casual triathlon enthusiast. The world-class facilities at Aspire Zone add to the overall quality of the organization of these events, providing a picturesque backdrop to the races which traditionally commence early in the morning of weekend race days.
Mr Ewan Cameron, Chairman of TriClub Doha said:
The Aspire Triathlon GMC TriSeries is for people of all ages, genders and fitness levels, including those discovering fitness as a new passion as well as people who have been running, swimming and cycling their entire lives. Given this diversity, the TriClub works closely with its members outside the scheduled events to help them train effectively. We are happy to welcome any enthusiastic new members to the club prior to TriSeries events to practice and train with us.’
