2023 World Triathlon Development Regional Cup Bridgetown
The Mighty Grynner Highway course is situated on one of the calmest coasts in Barbados, situated a stone’s
throw out of the capital, Bridgetown. The crystal clear Caribbean Sea gives triathletes the opportunity to view
beautiful coral reefs while swimming and the chance to spot a turtle, very likely.
The Bike & Run courses share the same tarmac with almost zero elevation except for a small incline at the north
turn on the Bike.
Barbados also boasts some of the best weather conditions in the world with an average yearly temperature of 28
degrees C and water temperature of 26 degrees C at race time.
This beautiful island provides the perfect opportunity for competitors and non-competing partners and families
to stay and enjoy the relaxed environment and attractions.
The race venue is located on the Western side of Bridgetown. Most south coast hotels are a 15 to 20-minute
drive from the venue depending on traffic.
Some countries will require VISA to enter Barbados. See below site for details
