2012 Pineapple-a-thon Triathlon:
The race runs in conjunction with the annual Pineapple Festival, which runs all weekend and features food, drink, games, live music and some endurance races! A beautiful location on Gregory Town's cove the festival celebrates the area's pineapple farmers.
The music doesn't stop until the wee hours.
The race was reintroduced to the festival schedule, after an absence of a few years, in 2006. It has continued to grow each year, but maintains it's fun-but-competitive nature.
The 500 meter triangle swim course is surrounded by the limestone cliffs of the Gregory Town cove.
This leeward cove is usually flat calm and perfect for swimming but can get choppy if a westerly wind picks up.
The transition area is up the steps (careful!) and just to the right.
The 11 kilometer bike course has racers head north to the turnaround at the Oleander Gardens subdivision entrance, then back into town, twice.
About midway of each loop racers will encounter 'The Hill'. A challenging climb that racers make their way up a total of four times. Be prepared for some climbing and some fast downhills. Helmets a good idea.
The 5 kilometer run course once again heads north out of town to the turnaround at the Cove Resort entrance.
The Hill is climbed a total of two more times.
You can encourage and keep an eye on your fellow competitors on the out-and-back loops, a design which a lot of our racers enjoy!
Eleuthera can be reached directly from both Miami International Airport (American Airlines) and Fort Lauderdale Airport (Continental and Twin Air).
Gregory Town is closest to ELH and GHB airports on the northern end of Eleuthera.
You can also travel through Nassau and take a ferry from there.
Please email Tom for further travel information and information about accomodations.

This is a request for everyone involved in Bahamas Rugby to grab a cutlass, chainsaw, marigolds, whatever you can and come help us to clean up the place on Saturday, starting at 12 noon.
We'll be painting the building, renovating the rooms (including the bathrooms, you'll be pleased to hear), hacking back the bush and fixing up the pitches.
