The annual Tweed Enduro triathlon is on again in March at Pottsville. Photo supplied

Pottsville is set to welcome the annual Tweed Coast Enduro triathlon on 10 February.

For the 2018 event, the Enduro will be hosting a Triathlon Australia world age group qualifying race with places on the line for triathletes to compete for Australia at the upcoming World Championships in Denmark in July 2018.

Organisers are expecting a competitive field comprised of athletes from around the nation and abroad, with 2017 Men’s Open winner Matt Slee already committed to defending his title.

The long course Enduro triathlon features a 1.9 km swim down Mooball Creek, a 90km cycle along Tweed Coast Road towards Wooyung, and a 21.1km run following Overall Drive and the foreshore.

There is also a shorter sprint distance triathlon on offer aimed at friends and supporters of Enduroists and those not committed to such a strenuous training regime. The Sprint features a 750m swim, 22.5km cycle, and 5km run.

For more information or to enter, go to the event website.
