New World International Triathlon sets for November comeback in Tsim Sha Tsui East featuring three exciting qualifying races

Title-sponsored by New World Group and organised by AQUAWIZ, the New World International Triathlon 2014 will be held in Tsim Sha Tsui East for the second time on 30 November 2014 (Sunday). In the light of enthusiastic response, this year’s enrolment quota is increased to 400.

The New World International Triathlon, an exciting and challenging sporting event incorporating swimming, cycling and running, saw over 300 international and local participants, including world-class Olympians last year. To ensure safe participation, three qualifying races have been scheduled in the coming three months (see table below for details). Local athletes are required to participate in one of the qualifying races and submit previous triathlon results as qualification proof. Athletes who participated in last year’s New World International Triathlon will be given priority to enroll.

Qualified athletes will get the chance to swim 1.2km in Victoria Harbour, cycle 32 km on Salisbury Road, and run 7.6 km along the Tsim Sha Tusi East Promenade, finishing at Avenue of Stars. Flash and Super Star triathletes and participants in aquathlons will race in shorter distances. This year the event will again feature a charity Relay race where athletes team up in three legs to take part in the respective swimming, cycling and running disciplines.
