8th annual Bonaire Mini Triathlon

The eighth annual Jong Bonaire fun triathlon was held early this past Sunday morning. This is a fun oriented, family friendly event and all ages were represented this year. Proceeds from the triathlon are used for the Jong Bonaire center and for activities for the youth of Bonaire. The fun category consisted of a 850 meter swim, a 11.6 kilometer bike ride and a 5 kilometer run. The "pro" category included a 1500 meter swim, a 23.2 kilometer bike ride and a 10 kilometer run. Both categories were open to solo competitors as well as three person relay teams.

Everyone started in front of the Regatta House. The fun category competators swam directly along the coast to the fruit market in front of City Cafe. The pro competators swam to the north for a while before making a u-turn and heading to the fruit market boat ramp.
Did I mention that this was a fun, family friendly event?
