enduro2Pottsville Beach is preparing to host the second annual edition of the Tweed Coast Enduro on Saturday March 5.

The Enduro is a long-distance triathlon featuring events for competitive racers, teams, and social athletes. The main event appeals to endurance athletes capable of a combined 1.9km swim, 90km cycle, and half-marathon run to the finish.

‘The low cost of entry and the fast, flat course design in Pottsville make for an appealing race for many athletes,’ says race director Mike Crawley. ‘By timing the swim with the outgoing tide, the Enduro features the only downhill swim around.’

‘We have many athletes coming to Pottsville and using the Enduro as their first distance beyond the standard Olympic, or as training for upcoming longer-distance races.’

Last year’s Enduro was embraced by the local community and helped stimulate the beachside village’s local economy.

‘We are proud to support the local community,’ says Crawley. ‘We have again partnered with the Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre and the Cabarita Beach SLSC as the event’s official charities.’

Spectators, friends and guests are all encouraged to come down to cheer on participants and experience the triathlon atmosphere based along Mooball Creek.
