THE Fiji Triathlon Association will start its 2014 Marco Polo Xtasy Triathlon Series this month at the Togalevu Naval Base outside Suva.

Seven tournaments are part of this year's series with the opener to be held on January 18.

The rest of the events will be held on February 15, March 15, April 5, May 3, May 14 and June 15.

Fiji Triathlon president Andrew Pene said all tournaments were selection events for the national team.

Pene said the tournaments would be held at Togalevu Naval Base, Denarau and Olympic Pool in Suva on a rotational basis.

He also said there were attractive prizes up for grabs during the 2014 series.

"Our sponsors Marco Polo has given us prizes ranging from bike accessories to bikes and flat screen TVs for all categories of the competition," Pene said.

The tournament will have individual and team competitions held in Olympic (over 19 years), Sprint (over 16 years) and Super Sprint (over 13 years) categories.

Teams of either three males or three females can compete in one kilometre swims, 1km bikes and 1km run.

The Olympic event has a 1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run while the Sprint has a 750-metre swim, 20km bike and 5km run.

The Super Sprint will have a 400m swim, 10km bike and 2.5km run.

"All cyclists are encouraged to form male or female teams with others who are able to swim and or run if required," Pene said.

"Feel free to contact John Fox on 9905414 for more details on the event."
