After a long break Jeddah Tribe kickoff their 3rd race of the year 2020.
The short distance duathlon i.e. (2.5 km run, followed by a 20 km bike ride, and finally followed by a 2.5 km run) took place on Saturday the 29th of August at Coral Beach Resort in Jeddah with over 10 different nationalities represented in the race including Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, France, Greece, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Philipines, Korea, UK, Australia, and South Africa…
Jeddah Tribe was founded in November 2019 by a group of local triathlon enthusiasts (Jude Jamjoom, Arwa Al Amoudi, Ata Elyas, Emad Salhab, Nouha Al Digs, Ali Magboul, Faisal Al Harith, Raghad Al Marzouki, Dina Al Tayeb, Abdallah Ali Reza, Saif Al Turki, and Tala Al Hashimi) all having a shared vision to promote a healthier community and to build and shape the up and coming triathlon scene in Jeddah through growing the practice of triathlon i.e. a multidisciplinary endurance sport consisting of swimming, cycling, & running.
Since the founding of Jeddah Tribe in November 2019, many companies have jumped at the opportunity to back up and support this group’s initiative, including Sedco Holding (season platinum sponsor), ASM Process Automation (season silver sponsor), GetMuv (season silver sponsor), Coral Beach Resort (venue partner), Delmonte Fruits (F&B partner), Al Rabie Juices (F&B partner), Nestle Waters (F&B partner), Amsn Films (VDP partner), and Trifecta (logistics partner). As a result, Jeddah Tribe has already managed to successfully organize 8 races to date and has also sought to keep the community active during lockdown and quarantine by conducting over 15 webinars and inspiring talks with health experts and amateur/professional triathletes from all around the world to shed light on their experience in the sport. Additionally, a number of virtual training sessions hosted via Zoom have been conducted (run, bike, and strength & conditioning).
Ultimately, this group intends on growing the triathlon community in Jeddah, and putting Jeddah on every triathlete’s “must race” map. AND will stop at nothing to achieve just that inshallah!
