Imagine ending your triathlon season on white sand beaches with turquoise waters. That's what triathletes can expect at Tri Punta Cana, this new late season Half Iron distance triathlon on the Caribbean island of Dominican Republic. The inaugural event on November 10th event is set to be staged at the Punta Cana Resort & Club. It's being organized by Punta Cana Multisports.

The island previously had a half iron distance triathlon event, but that race no longer exists.

Triathletes will enjoy the beautiful turquoise waters with a one loop course, 1.2 mile Swim, a very flat, two loop 56 mile Bike course through a rural closed highway and a very scenic 13.1 mile Run course around the resort and throughout the beach fronts and golf courses. Athletes not interested in going the distance can par take in the Sprint distance triathlon, a 750me Swim, 20km Bike and 5km Run.
