It’s not far away! The days are getting longer and the weather warmer. The Triathlon and Multisport season is upon us!
My focus this season will be to race as well as possible in the TREX Cross Triathlon series kicking off on Sept 6th with a Du-Athlon. Not to my liking as I’m a swimmer at heart. The series has its first Swim/MTB/trail run race on Oct 26th in Qld before heading to Victoria for the National Cross Tri champs in Bendigo. More races come in the new year again in Qld on Jan 18, The Oceania Champs in Crackenback, NSW Feb 28 and the Qld champs to finish of the season on May 2 Check out http://www.tre-x.com.au/event-dates.php
I am programming sessions toward these events for my squad see time table here
Also in the next few months we will see a number of exciting Mutisport races going off.
This weekend 10th August will be the remake of the famous ‘Anaconda race’ now known as the Gold Coast Adventure race. The event offers 2 and 4 person relay formats and solo.
Legs are 1500m swim, 14km paddle, 12.5km trail run, 20km MTB and 2km run
Top teams will take around 4hs more at http://ridgelineadventures.com.au/
October 11 we will diverge on Coffs Harbor NSW for the second running of the Adventurthon Coffs event. Joel Savage the race Promoter and director does an amazing job with is Wife and a very small crew to put these awesome events on around the country and I would love to see them grow.
The Coffs race course is slightly modified for 2014 with the same sweet 16km ocean paddle, a new 11km run, 35km MTB and 6km run. This event also offers a shorter course and a non paddling course. More https://adventurethon.com.au/cms25/
Adventure Fest Nov 3rd will be the Tri Nations Trophy adventure race in WA a race I have done and won in the past but not in this format. 12km Trail run, 2km swim, 14km Paddle 20km MTB, 2km run. I am keen to race with my weakest leg first and strong legs through the middle of the course. The prize money has been bumped up and the WA athletes come out in their droves to make it the largest Adventure event in the World!
The 2nd Adventure Fest race will host the Australasian Multisport Champs at the Lorne event in Victoria. In it’s Tenth year it’s a must do for me.
