Over 900 athletes are expected to take to the roads of Kingscliff this weekend to compete in the annual Kingscliff Triathlon. This includes almost 200 youth athletes aged between 7-12 that may just give the adults a run for their money.

Race Director Mike Crawley says that this year’s race will be met with higher anticipation from athletes due to the postponement of the event in March.

The event will run a reduced program over the weekend due to COVID-19 restrictions but will still offer a variety of events for people of all abilities. This includes an adult and kids aquathon on Saturday and a sprint triathlon on Sunday.

Since the inception of the marathon, it has aimed to create work experience opportunities and support local community clubs. This year the event will support the Pottsville and District Men’s Shed, Rotary Club of Banora Tweed, Currumbin Dragon Boaters, Cudgen Surf Life Saving Club, Cabarita Youth Service, and Pottsville Croquet Club.

A number of local roads will be closed to cater for the event including Chinderah Bay Drive, Wommin Bay Rd, Sutherland St, and Marine Parade.
