30 August 2014 | Pyeongtaek, South Korea | Reverse Sprint Triathlon
This event is sponsored by the Camp Humphreys US Base near Pyeongtaek, South Korea. It’s about 80km south of Seoul. Sounds like a nice short drive, but coming back with traffic the 80km takes about 2-3 hours if you are lucky.
The Event is a reverse sprint triathlon: You run the 5km out and back by the Airfield, then you bike 20km out and back twice by the Airfield and then you swim 400m in the outdoor pool. All this in brutal heat at 30 Celsius and 98% Humidity.
You can either pre-register or show up in the morning and participate. You need to have base access or know someone who has one to sign you in.
