We’re grateful for St John Ambulance’s continued assistance in ensuring the safety of participants during our event weekend, as well as their service throughout the year at social and sporting events across the island.
“The Bermuda Triangle Challenge race weekend was incredible and exceeded all expectations for a 3-day race event. It was really well-organized and the four distances made it so that there was a distance for everyone to take part in. The race swag was the best we’ve ever received and then all the incredible award trophies AND unique magnetized medals!! The community really comes together for these races and we were really impressed by how kind and welcoming Bermudians were to all of us coming in for the race. We had the best time and we are already excited to sign up next year!”
“What an incredible weekend in paradise. Thank you to everyone in Bermuda! You have all been absolutely brilliant & made our experience here just the best. The support of the whole island is so warming. Your impeccably organized events are inspirational. Bermuda, you have stolen my heart!”
“Running has given me many great experiences but this by far is my favorite one. This weekend made me love racing again. The crowds, other runners, and locals were out of this world. Thank you so much for a memory filled trip that I can look back on forever.”
