Triathletes head for the waves for the swim leg during Saturday’s Byron Bay Triathlon. The gruelling event was won by Lennox Head’s athlete Joe Lampe. Sixteen-year-old Ainslie Bakker, also from Lennox Head, was the first woman home. Nearly 900 competitors completed the 1.5km ocean swim followed by a 40km cycle with a 10km run to finish; too easy.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.
Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
