Over 150 racers are expected to compete in this year’s event.

Over 1,000 competitors are ready for the 24th Byron Bay Triathlon this Saturday May 11.

Last year’s men’s open winner Ben Cook will be looking to get back on the podium, with runner-up Lindsey Lawry also returning to try to go one better. 

After narrowly missing the podium last year, Travis Coleman will also be looking to step up. 

In the women’s pen, competition is expected to be tight between Emily Donker and Courtney Gilfillan, both coming off recent wins at the Tweed Enduro and Kingscliff Triathlon respectively. 

The Byron Tri marks the final event in the Triathlon New South Wales Interclub Series, which has seen teams from Coffs Harbour, Yamba, Port Macquarie, Ballina and Hat Head, as well as the local Byron Tri Club battle it out across the region. 

Over 150 racers are expected to compete in this series, with the Hat Head Hammerheads currently leading by just one point. 

Roads will be affected between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
