Half Iron Distance
SAT 5 AUG 2023
We are proud of this race. It is the only Half Iron triathlon distance in the South Pacific Islands. The Race has been running since 2013, next year in 2023 will be our 10th Year. It is not a big event with Entries, but a magnificent friendly race in Samoa. Originally, it was based in Apia with the Bike course going out to Le Mafa Pass. In our third year it was moved to the Lalomanu Course. In 2023, we are moving the race to the Sheraton Resort at the Airport for the first time.
The coup for 2023 is, Warrior Half IM distance will double as the OCEANIA ITU LONG COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP. This has been sanctioned by the Oceania Triathlon Union (OTU) and World Triathlon.
We invite you to come to Samoa and measure yourself against the Warrior course. See you in August 2023.
Half IM Long Triathlon
Beat the Heat
Beat the Heat (BTH) is an Olympic-like distance race. The difference is the Bike where the ride is 40 km. BTH was added in 2014 and has been running since. It is open to Solo entries and Teams. The late start of the race, two hours after the Warrior Start earned this race its name. It was designed to finish together with Warrior. BTH runs on a shorter Bike course, and the same run course with fewer laps.
