2019 Daman Challenge TriYAS offers new categories for all fitness levels


With only four weeks to go until Daman’s Challenge TriYAS, the only twilight race in the region, organisers are gearing up for the ninth consecutive year and are offering participants 10 per cent discount on registration fees. However, participants must act fast as they will only be able to avail the offer until Thursday 24th January.

With the inclusion of the brand new Super Sprint category, adding a further choice of two categories to this year’s event, organisers are aiming to make the triathlon as accessible as possible for both first-time triathletes.

Also new in 2019 is a separate female and male ProFIELD category, which will consist of 10 of the best local professionals as well as international competitors – all looking to take home the top spot. 

Daman’s Challenge TriYAS will be held on 15th of February, with registration still open for those that wish to compete but have yet to sign up.

To ensure first-time participants receive all the support needed to help them compete, Yas Marina Circuit will also be offering free bikes hire. In addition, Haddins will be running a first-timer triathlon programme to support those taking up the challenge.  More details can be found here:https://www.yasmarinacircuit.com/en/products/whats-on-track/triyas/
