von Bibra Corporate Challenge

The Challenge is set & bragging rights are on the line!

Round up your workmates for the von Bibra Corporate Challenge on Sunday April 7th 2019.  Compete as a Relay Team or race head to head in the ultimate Corporate Triple.  Will your company come out on top? Divide the triathlon between 2 or 3 people in the Relay Team, or race as a team of 3 in the Corporate Triple, each completing the whole tri.  Experience the best of racing, and corporate competition, at the Gold Coast Triathlon – Luke Harrop Memorial.

How it works: Each category is competing over the Sprint Distance (750m swim, 20km ride, 5km run). There are 2 categories – either the Relay Team or the Corporate Triple.

  • Relay Team:  2 or 3 competitors, each doing one or two legs of the triathlon each. For example, one swims, one rides and the final team member runs; or one swims and rides and the other runs.
  • Corporate Triple:  3 person team, where each competitor does the whole triathlon.  The team start together and the team finish time is determined by averaging the times of the 3 team members.

Overall Corporate Challenge winner will be determined by a combination of participation points and performance points:  eg 1 point per registered participant, and performance based points for the top 10 placed teams in both Relay Team and Corporate Triple categories.

  • 1st place = 10 points
  • 2nd place = 9 points
  • 3rd place = 8 points
  • 4th place = 7 points
  • 5th place = 6 points
  • 6th place = 5 points
  • 7th place = 4 points
  • 8th place = 3 points
  • 9th place = 2 points
  • 10th place = 1 point.

As the von Bibra Corporate Challenge is running at the same time as the individual events, participants will not be able to do both an individual and a team event.  Individuals competing in their Age Group category are not eligible to earn points towards their company for the von Bibra Corporate Challenge. To be eligible for the Triathlon Australia Age Group National Championships or selection points for the Age Group ITU World Championship team, you will need to compete as an individual in your correct age group (and be a current Triathlon Australia member).  Under Triathlon Australia rules, your age is determined as at 31 December 2018. Corporate tent space is available.  You can bring your own tent or we can arrange hireage of one if needed.  Please contact us to book your space (and tent) – marketing@theeventcrew.com.au or via phone on (07) 5568 0443.
