The only triathlon on the East coast of the UAE is back for the first race of the year. Taking place on Friday 10th February, the Oceanic Triathlon Series will take over Khorfakkan once again at the Oceanic Khorfakkan Resort & Spa

Launched in 2016, the Oceanic Triathlon Series sees over 200 triathletes competing in a beautiful and unique setting at each event in the series. The swim takes place in the Indian Ocean, the cycle includes challenging hill climbs and the run takes place on the Khorfakkan corniche.

Two different distances are available for each discipline catering for all levels of fitness, experience and ages. The Short Course category consists of an 800 metre swim, followed by a 30 kilometre cycle course and a seven kilometre run. The Super Sprint category is aimed at younger athletes and those in the early stages of their training and consists of a 375 metre swim, a 12 kilometre cycle and a 2.5 kilometre run.

All contestants can enjoy a post-event celebratory breakfast at the Oceanic Hotel Resort and Spa along with friends and family.

The Oceanic Triathlon Series offers a fantastic weekend at the Oceanic Hotel Resort and Spa for only AED500 per room, per night – an exclusive accommodation package for the race weekend.
