Butterfield recently signed on as a sponsor of the Cayman Islands Turtle Tri
for the 15th consecutive year. The triathlon is set to take place on Sunday,
November 23rd at the Public Beach.
Butterfield’s Searlina Bodden commented, “We congratulate Polly Cox and the
Cayman Islands Triathlon Association for being so committed to staging world
class triathlons here in the Cayman Islands.”
Race organiser Polly Cox says, “Triathlon is a dynamic event that allows
people of varying ages and abilities to set goals and achieve them. You
don’t have to be a fast swimmer, cyclist, and runner, just confident enough to
take up the challenge whether it be as an individual or on a relay team.
Crossing the finish line brings about a huge sense of accomplishment. It’s great
to see teams from the same company challenging each other, and those who have
been on a team in previous races, doing the race on their own this year. It’s
also exciting to see so many new faces on the Tri scene. We extend our sincere
thanks and appreciation to Butterfield Bank for their continuing trust and
The Cayman Islands Turtle Tri offers two triathlon events which are open to
Individuals and Relay Teams. The Olympic distance event consists of a 1500-metre
swim, 40 km bike, and a 10 km run. The Sprint event involves a 750 metre swim,
20 km bike, and a 5 km run. Awards will be presented to overall and age
group winners. New for 2008 is the Turtle 10K run. This event is in its
trial stages, and has been included as a way of accommodating runners not taking
part in either triathlon events.
There is no age minimum for athletes participating on a team. A matchmaker
system has been set up for anyone wishing to participate on a relay team, but
can’t find one. Simply e-mail contact details and the event/discipline you
wish to do, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants will receive a lot of cool stuff and some great race support.
Volunteers will receive a great souvenir T-shirt and are welcome to join in at
the Pre-Race Pasta Party at Courtyard Marriott and the Post-race Awards BBQ at
Calico Jacks. Anyone wishing to offer some time to the event may volunteer by
