FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Organisers of the 2010 Conchman and Iron Kids Triathlons are gearing up for an exciting and fun-filled day on November 6th at Taino Beach. Online registration is now open at www.conchman.com until Wednesday, November 3rd at midnight. The registration deadline in person is at the new Pelican Bay convention centre on Thursday November 4th for local participants from 5:30-7:00pm.
Registering at Pelican Bay on Friday November 5th from 5:30-7:00pm is intended for off-island participants only, therefor any Freeport residents will incur an additional $10 processing fee for Friday registration. The website also contains important information on packet pick-up times for both adult Conchman and the young Iron Kids participants. As always, there is no race day registration.
Practices are now underway on Taino Beach for the Iron Kids on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 4:00pm with Coach Bert Bell. Tuesday practices are swim/run and Saturday run/bike. Click here to download the Iron Kids registration form (PDF). The completed form may be handed in to your school PE teacher or at the Pelican Bay registration desk on Thursday, November 4th between 5:30-7:00pm. The Iron Kids race starts at 12 noon on Sunday, November 6th, following the adult Conchman but again, there will be no race day registration so it is important to register as soon as possible.
