The island of Tahiti is home to an incredible off-road triathlon (and duathlon relay) that boasts a jaw-dropping course worthy of a spot on your triathlon adventure bucket list. A group of passionate triathlete friends started the race six years ago as a duathlon and expanded it to a triathlon last year. An eight-hour direct flight from LAX will take you to Tahiti’s big island for an unforgettable experience to end your season and then get on with a tropical fall holiday.
Check out these photos from the second-annual TranXTahitienne triathlon and sixth-annual TranSTahitienne duathlon that took place Nov. 1, and look for more on the race in a future print issue of Triathlete.
