The twenty-fifth Kingscliff triathlon will take place at Kingscliff this weekend. The event will welcome an expected field exceeding 1,300 athletes competing in various distances, including 200 junior athletes ranging from age 7 to 12.

Friday 17 March will host a Take 3 for the Sea beach clean up walk from Cudgen Surf Club at 7am, with all participants enjoying a free coffee afterwards. 

Saturday 18 March the Kingy Tri team will join the local Salt Park Run at 8am, offering random draw prizes to runners in attendance. 

From 9am on Saturday 18 March local families can come and join a Free Community Swim in Cudgen Creek, across 1km, 400m and Kids Splash n’ Dash distances. Interested families can register on the day up to 30 minutes prior to each event. 

Sunday 19 March will host the triathlon.

‘This year we are pleased to host a wider community program as part of the event weekend. With a focus on increasing local bed nights, we’ve added events for the whole family – from barefoot bowls, to community swims, to beach clean up walks. And they are all completely free,’ said Race Director Mike Crawley.

‘This year we will also trial a move to Rowan Robinson Park to better centralise the flow of business along Marine Parade.’

Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest, said he was delighted to see the Kingscliff Triathlon back again in 2023 and encouraged locals to take advantage of the free activities on offer.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to really make the Kingscliff Triathlon an event for everyone, not just athletes,’ he said.
