ABU DHABI TRIATHLON
Sprint: 0.5km swim, 20km cycle, 5km ride
Maxi: 2km, 80km, 20km
Introduced with typical UAE fanfare in 2010, Abu Dhabi Triathlon in the desert has already proved to be one of the most popular early-season triathlon races for professionals and amateur athletes. The former are attracted by the prize money, $40,000 each for the men’s and women’s winners, and the latter by sun.
The event was revised for 2015 and the Maxi has been added for those looking for a real endurance test.
