Daman Challenge TriYAS celebrates 10 years in 2020.

It is the region's only day into night triathlon held annually on Yas Marina Circuit.

Daman Challenge TriYAS is open to everyone with the emphasis on setting personal targets and achieving them whether you are a first timer or a seasoned veteran.

Swim the Yas Marina, Transition in the Formula 1 Pit Lane, Cycle on the 5.5K track and Run through the Yas Marina as you achieve your goal. Daman Challenge TriYAS is a true community race and is a guaranteed fun day out for the whole family.

In 2020, we have moved the kids events to the morning and introduced a Super Sprint Contest which will celebrate true inclusiveness.

New in 2020 - We introduce #TriWithRio an inclusive sprint event leading off the afternoon with a field limit of 50. Registered participants can either do the full sprint triathlon, or choose to do only elements of the 3 disciplines, however to enter the swim you must be able to complete 750M inside 20 minutes and hold a minimum bike pace of 25Km/h but the run/walk for the final 5Km is at your liesure joining Nick and Rio crossing the line as one.

The Elite Race in 2020 will feature for the first time a 'DRAFT LEGAL' Sprint race starting at 2pm. This invitational event will feature a number of the regions best triathletes racing head to head in a staggered start timed handicap format.

From 3pm the Olympic contest will commence followed by the afternoon sprint contest from 4pm.

New in 2020 - The SPRINT INVITATIONAL - 30 of the UAE's finest athletes will compete for the first time in the Draft Legal Sprint at 2pm on Race Day. For the first time ever that the athletes will start and race against the clock in a pursuit style race. 

New in 2020 we bring the FIRST ever pure open water swim to Yas Marina - Starting after the super sprint the open water swim is a great warm up event or a pure stand alone swim within the iconic Yas Marina with the Super Yachts watching on.
