The overwhelming support shown for the GBPA Conchman Triathlon last November, from triathletes near and far, has prompted the organizing committee to begin early registration for the increasingly popular competition scheduled for Saturday, November 2nd on
Taino Beach in Freeport. Interested persons can register online now at All event categories are open, including Individual Sprint, Individual Olympic, Relay Team, Corporate Challenge, Secondary School Challenge and the crowd favorite, the IronKids Competition. Take advantage of the 50% off early registration discount presently being offered until September 30 th. The $50 fee for the Sprint is the lowest Registration Fee in the Caribbean.

The 33 rd Annual GBPA Conchman Triathlon is expected to draw large
numbers again this year. A record two hundred athletes participated in the event last year, forty-six teams competed in various categories, and over thirty participants traveled to Grand Bahama to compete.
Chairman Christopher Baker is encouraged by the positive feedback the
committee has received from competitors and is confident Conchman will continue to attract athletes from other countries and the family islands to Grand Bahama. He attributed a lot of Conchman’s success to the support of the event’s sponsors. “We are grateful to all our sponsors”, said Baker, “without them the Conchman Triathlon would not have been in existence for over 30 years.

We thank them for their support and we look forward to continuing to work with them in the years to come.” The Chairman noted that the triathlon does require additional funding each year to grow, and to “promote it throughout The Bahamas, the US, around the Caribbean, and overseas.” Indicators suggest that past advertising campaigns to International Triathletes have been effective, Baker noted that “we are already seeing the benefits of these promotions with the increased numbers of participants from the U.S., Trinidad, and Antigua.”

“Each year we set out to beat our previous participant numbers,” noted the Chairman, also a triathlete. “We support our fellow events, like the
Potcakeman, Ride for Hope, and they, in turn, support us. The Bahamas is really beginning to shine in this arena and who wouldn’t want to swim, run and bike in this gorgeous country!”
