Kingscliff Triathlon 2012. Niels Juel.

Over 1,200 athletes are expected to compete in the tenth Kingscliff triathlon in just over two weeks. They will be joined by 200 junior athletes ranging from age 7 to 12.

Growing from just over 400 entrants in its first year in 2010, to 1300 in it’s most recent December event, Kingscliff has quickly become one of the sport’s most loved and sought after Triathlon destinations.

Triathlon Event Manager Kevin Pready says,’We are really excited to be celebrating ten years in the Tweed this year’.

‘This event is recognised as a must-do event on the triathlon calendar. Athletes travel to Kingscliff for the positive, friendly atmosphere and the unique coastal environment.

‘We are also proud to have built great relationships with our local community groups who use the event as their major fundraisers for the year.’

The event charity is once again the Cudgen Headland Surf Lifesaving Club with seven rescue craft and a team of 25 to protect the 1200 swimmers over five distances in Cudgen Creek.

More information can be found at Kingscliff triathlon.
