Miami, FL – 11 Caribbean Triathlon Federations met in Miami over the weekend with the intentions of implementing the first ever CARIFTA Triathlon and Aquathon Championships. After voting, it was unanimously decided that Barbados would be the host nation for the 2017 games.

 

The event is set to take place the weekend of October 7th and 8th 2017 at the Barbados Aquatic Center and Gymnasium Complex. 29 countries are invited to participate in the event, with an expectation of 50 to 70 competitors in age groups ranging from 11-12, 13-15 and 16-19.

 

The CARIFTA Championships will include triathlon, Aquathon and mixed relay formats, with distances varying based on age groups. Each country will determine their own qualifying standards and Barbados will host a qualifying event and release qualifying criteria at a later date.

 

By having this event, the best youth and junior triathletes in the region will have the opportunity to show case their talent and compete against each other. Barbados Federation of Island Triathletes (BFIT) President Darren Treasure speaks about the importance of the event; “Significant for development of the sport in the region and critical to the development of young triathletes who aspire to represent their country and compete at a high level.”

 

Trinidad & Tobago Triathlon Federation is the governing body for triathlon and triathletes in Trinidad & Tobago.   We sanction and organize multi-sport events, which include Triathlons, Duathlons and Aquathlons.
