Doha Triathlon will take place on Friday 16th March 2018, in the surrounding area of the Museum of Islamic Art, with the scenic view of Doha’s skyline in the background.
This is the second edition of the event which started on 20 th January 2017. In addition of the full Olympic Triathlon and Sprint distances that we offered last year, we are happy to announce that we are now bringing in a Super Sprint distance for teenagers aged 12-13 and 14-15 years old, individually or in teams.
Super Sprint – 375m swim, 10km bike, 2.5k run
Sprint – 750 m swim, 20 km bike, 5k run
Olympic – 1500 m swim, 40 km bike, 10k run
The swim will take place in bay behind the
Museum. Doha average sea water temperature in March is 22.6 degrees Celsius (71.3 Fahrenheit) and therefore, as per ITU rules, the use of wetsuits for the swim will be most likely forbidden (water temperature reaching or exceeding 22 C (71.6 F) for adults and 20 C (68 F) for children).
Transition will be placed next to Richard Serra’s ‘7’ Sculpture. The cycling leg will be along the Corniche and back to the Museum Park for the run.
The Museum of Islamic Art, is one of the Doha’s most iconic building, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect I.M. Pei. It hosts a collection of finest Islamic art pieces from across the Islamic world from the 7 th to the 19 th century.
