"This is a fantastic community event and we're very pleased to be able to continue our support.There will be a great contingent from the Ogier team taking part as usual, and we look forward to raising as much as possible to support these incredibly worthwhile causes.Good luck to everyone taking part!"
Race Director Johann Prinsloo from the Cayman Islands Triathlon Association added:
"We are very excited to continue the third year of our partnership with Ogier this year to promote an active lifestyle in Cayman and simultaneously support such a great cause.
