With six events over two days, the iconic Sportscene Super Warehouse Townsville Triathlon Festival has an opportunity for every age and fitness level to get involved.
Now entering it’s 13th year, the festival is a must-do on the health and fitness calendar and draws participants from all over the country to take part.
And who wouldn’t want to get involved? With the picturesque coastline from The Strand to Pallarenda Beach as the backdrop, this really is winter racing at its best.
The Townsville Triathlon Festival is proud to be home to Race 1 of the World Age Group Olympic Distance Championships, but it’s also the scene of many first-timer triumphs – that feeling of crossing the line knowing that you have achieved something that weeks or months ago you doubted you could.
Over the June 27-28 weekend, the main activities will take place in Townsville’s Strand Park, where the high-traffic transition area is located. The swim leg is just off the main Strand beach, while the bike and run legs takes participants along The Strand and Pallarenda Beach, making the most of the now unbroken coastal route.
