Escape To Bermuda Olympic Triathlon - St. Georges, Bermuda November 2, 2008

Escape to Bermuda covered the islands of Bermuda from west to east. The course began with a one-mile swim at the Royal Naval Dockyard. Competitors swim through warm turquoise waters into the King’s Stairs below the Dockyard Clock tower. After transition, the Bike Course takes the athletes along South Road 24 miles across the entire span of Bermuda and past some of the most scenic views and vistas in the world. 

The six-mile run begins and ends in King’s Square in the historic town of St. George’s. The run is demanding as it follows the unforgiving hills and winding roads through St. George’s Parish.

Here are our local Huntington results:

Name Time age group overall

Greg Linakis     2:35:37   2nd   38th

Harry Slutter     3:03:07          9th*           95th

*Nice job by Harry after crashing on the bike and then having a moped run into him -- maybe somebody should have had their Dark and Stormy AFTER the race!
