Our Sponsors



To promote the participation of local Relay Teams from Curaçao, TEC has created the FREE RELAY TEAM PROGRAM.

We have a list of participating Curaçao companies who are each ‘adopting’ 3 Relay Teams. These so called “Free Relay Teams” are competing in the ‘regular’ Relay Team category and they do not have to pay for their registration fees. The only requirement we have for Free Relay Team applicants is that they have genuine difficulty with the $-amount they have to pay for registration. The participating Curaçao companies can create their own Free “Company” Relay Teams and/or ask organizer TEC to find teams for them.
To APPLY for the Free Relay Team Program is very simple. When you register you just have to click the “Yes, we want to apply for the Free Relay Team Program”– button. You will find this button in the Relay Team registration process.

Once a Free Relay Team is registered, TEC will then allocate this Free Relay Team to the open slots of participating Companies.

We are very very pleased with the support of the Dutch Army and the local Millicent. Without them we would not be able to organize an event like this at Curaçao.

But we do need even more volunteers: Photographers, Motorcycles, Timers, Coordinators and more …

Start, finish and transition area are at the parking place of Santa Barbara Golf & Beach Resort at the St. Barbara Plantation near the dive shop. The swim course is two laps around the floating dock of St. Barbara Beach. Keep the dock at your left hand side at all times. There will be a water start at the outer side of the dock. After the second lap, leave the water after the buoy.



The running course is heavy! Hilly and hot. There are three water/aid stations on the running course and a medical checkpoint halfway.

There is water and sports drinks at the aid stations. Drink ca. one liter per hour to prevent de- hydration. Use cold water to cool your body and wear a cap to prevent heatstroke.

Any athlete not feeling well should report at the aid stations, the medical checkpoint, or at the medical tent in the start and finish area.



The biking course will only be open for participants of the Karcher Curaçao International Triathlon during the race and the course exploration on the Friday before the race. No supporters are allowed on the bike course for safety reasons.

Usually heavy traffic is using the road and therefore biking on this road is dangerous. It is not a public road. Please respect these rules! Anybody training on this road will be disqualified and endangers the future of the Karcher Curaçao International Triathlon.
