About Flying Start

Flying Start is a triathlon race organized in Kuwait on an annual basis, typically every October. The race was first organized in 2010, as a way to motivate three club members to continue training for a triathlon. The success of the first race turned Flying Start into an annual event, which gives the community a continuous goal to train for.
