This time of the year is when triathletes start thinking about finishing up the race season for the year and more importantly, start thinking about next year’s races. While most of us will blend local events with some travel, I wanted to give you 4 good reasons to put Rev3 Punta Cana on your Must-Do List.

Reason 1 – Something for Everyone – Trications are fun for the athletes but a great trication is when everyone loves the time away.  With Rev3, they choose only the best locations that are complementary for the entire family.  At Punta Cana Resort, there are endless attractions including private beaches, pools, tennis, spas, world class golf, horseback riding and day excursions. So much to occupy family while racers prep and race. With transition and swim right on resort grounds, family can maximize their time.  Imagine, you start the race while your family swims and plays on the beach. Then they can be at the swim exit to see you transition.  While you are biking, they could go to the pool, have some breakfast and then meet you back for the start of the run.  During the run, maybe they follow you if you are doing the looped course or maybe they take a tennis lesson and then catch you at the finish line.  This resort really opens up options for everyone.

Reason 2 – Accessible from the United States and the world –  Punta Cana International (PUJ) offers direct flights from over 28 countries and 96 cities around the world. Delta, United, American, Southwest and JetBlue are just some of the major airlines that fly direct to PUJ.  Remember reward travel to the Caribbean is usually less than Europe or S American and most airlines don’t offer reward travel until 333 days from date of flying so you still have time to plan.  Some of the North American cities that fly direct (as of Sept 2016) are: Ft Lauderdale, Charlotte, Newark, Toronto, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta and NYC.

Reason 3 – Endless accommodations for every budget –  The race could not be in a better location for athletes trying to balance family fun and the racer’s weekend.  With all of the events at Puntacana Resort and Club  (, families can be with their racer the entire time or enjoy their own time on the beach, excursions or something in between.  Tortuga Bay, Westin and Four Points by Sheraton all offer great options for racers. Starwood hotel points apply.  And for those that might have a timeshare or and AirBnB nearby, no problem! Check out the Athlete Travel Page Here:

Reason 4 -Multiple distances and races for the entire family –  With a 5K, 10K, Kids & Sprint Rev Tri on Saturday and a Oly & Half distance Rev (including relays) on Sunday, there really is something for everyone.  Grab a family member or friend and do a relay or make this vacation a training trip with your tri-friends and have some friendly competition with a back to back Sprint Rev/Half Rev.  Get your kids involved with a 5K or kids rev. The possibilities are really endless.
