Island House Triathlon Air Dates

Last November, the Island House Triathlon took the triathlon world by storm with a star-studded field, weird format, and breathtaking venue. While the ITU speedsters stole the show, a great time was had by all and our Twitter feeds truly won the day.

A new year has dawned, and if you’re like me, you’re asking yourself: “when can I watch this incredible event on my television set?” Luckily for you, race director and friend of TRS Triathlon Luke McKenzie has provided your favourite triathlon website with an air schedule. Take a gander, and don’t be left out in the cold like Ben (see below).

Ben Petitions the Masses for Island House Triathlon Details

It’s a boring Tuesday between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Ben is thinking about triathlon – as always – and can’t wait to see how the most unique race in years went down. Doesn’t anybody share his passion for the sport?

As a #blowin, Ben must be excused for missing this one NBC air date. His PVR is still full of old XFL games and American Gladiator episodes. A little help?

Hm, is it possible he wasn’t paying close enough attention to Twitter?

We all knew it couldn’t be Ben’s fault! The great unwashed have spoken, and they know not when to watch. Surely the race winner can help?

Crickets. Oh, the humanity.

Finally, a gracious Twitterlandian pointed Ben in the right direction.

At last. Between you and me, it’s a good thing Luke stepped up – I’m not convinced even this tweet would have been direct enough. 

All the best to the Island House Triathlon. Congratulations on pulling off such a high-calibre event, and we all look forward to seeing more in 2016 – if we can figure out how to watch.
