About the Race
The Mercuryman Triathlon is the only half iron distance triathlon in the Cayman Islands. Mercuryman is the brain child of three dedicated triathletes who have a combined 18 years of triathlon racing experience between them at all distances from sprint distance to full iron distance. As experienced triathletes, we know what is important to athletes competing in a half iron distance race. Our goal is to hold a fun, personalized and most of all safe race for our competitors, all in a fantastic setting. As the Mercuryman triathlon has a field limit of 200 athletes, you will be more than just a race number. The Cayman Islands boasts a small but friendly triathlon community and we would like to invite you to experience our hospitality on January 22, 2017.
About the Name
Many have asked us what inspired us to choose Mercuryman as the name of our event. Mercuryman denotes the metallic element used in thermometers and to measure temperature. We thought that, as the Mercuryman Triathlon is set in a tropical paradise, mercury is a perfect metaphor for the great warm weather athletes are likely to experience on race day.
