Vaseline Men kicks off 2014 with the Xterra Off Road Series! Wow!! I always thought triathletes were hardcore! Imagine feeling all tired already from one part of the race only to continue with 2 more that are equally or even more tiring than the first. One day, I hope I get to do this too or something similar. But for now, allow me to congratulate all participants!

The race will start at the shores of Liloan. Swimmers will do a 1.5 kilometer of open water swim. For LITE participants, swimmers will do 500 meters straight, one loop course for LITE.

The bike course is a mix of single tracks, fire roads, farmlands, grasslands and paved roads. FULL Tri participants must complete 2 loops of the 18-kilometer bike course while LITE participants must complete one loop. The bike course caters to all types of bikers. Experts will find the course fast and exciting. While beginners will feel it’s challenging. The first portion of the race is a long flat, paved road, perfect for sprinting and securing a place in the pack. Then it’s followed by long climbs while roads change from paved to trail. Trail becomes narrower and racers will encounter mixed vegetation along the course.
