Last year’s Kingscliff Triathlon was an event not to be missed and this year’s tri is set to bring it on with fierce competition for its sixth running.
With the likes of professional athletes Adam Gordon, Sam Betten and Callum Millward contending for the coveted Nev Salmon Memorial Trophy, and a hoard of athletes chomping at the bit for a go at the Kingy, organisers QSMSports say this weekend will see the biggest triathlon in their history held in the coastal town.
Events just for fun include a junior 7–9-years-old tri, a ‘big kids’ tri, the ‘Tempta’ beginners’ tri, a five-kilometre fun run and a 62-kilometre social ride. For those with a fire in their belly, there are four competitive races for both individuals and teams.
It is expected that during the weekend over 1,000 participants in either the Saturday Fusion Cycles 62km Social Ride or 5km Fun Run, or Sunday triathlon. This is a great response and all reports are that they love the course, love the town and love the atmosphere of the crew.
The Tweed Coast Holiday Parks Kingscliff Triathlon is only in its third year in 2012 and already has a great following. For more information or to follow what’s happening go to www.kingsclifftri.com.au or like us on Facebook.
