“Triathletes exemplify personal endeavor, self-discipline, persistence and the pursuit of dreams. Through the Triple Crown I intend to promote the long-term health and wellness benefits that Triathlons can bring to the people of Bahrain and around the world, and to lend whatever support I can to those top triathletes who set an example to us all.”

- HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa

The Nasser bin Hamad Triple Crown was first announced by HH Shaikh Nasser in December 2014 and the first race took place in Dubai in February 2015.

Through the patronage and support of the Nasser bin Hamad Foundation, the Triple Crown will work with leading partners to deliver world class endurance events. These events aim to celebrate, to educate and to inspire- showcasing the value of an active lifestyle from the elite to the aspirant, and from experienced athletes to dedicated debutants.

The Nasser bin Hamad Triple Crown offers $1,000,000 in prize money to the winner of all three races in each gender category. This is the largest prize pot currently offered for triathlons.
