The 2021 Apollo Member Day is on the beach at the lagoon by Camperduin. We chose this spot so we can combine a fun day at the beach with some swim, bike and run stuff (which is always fun of course ;)
Because the race season is about to take off full blast, we changed this year’s approach to a low key first step into triathlon (with the option to do 1, 2 or all 3 sports) BUT at the same time offering courses on which experienced athletes can eat their heart out. And to make sure it truly is a combination between training & beach, we’re doing the following distances:
Swim: 1k Bike: 40k Run: 10k
On the bike & run course, you’ll be able to see each other constantly which always is half the fun. Please note: As always the Apollo Member Day is not an official race, but a training. Even though the courses are as save as it gets, there will be traffic and people walking on the course. So please mind all the usual traffic rules.
Last but not least, we host a swim – run for the Apollo kids. Depending on the age of the kids signing up, we alter the course.
