The Moreton Bay Triathlon returns this month to Pelican Park, Clontarf. Hosting the Queensland Championship - Sprint, this race promises a fast, flat, closed course consisting of a 750m swim in Clontarf's protected bay, 20km two lap ride over the Ted Smout Bridge and a 5km picturesque run along Moreton Bay's waterfront.
The Moreton Bay Triathlon makes it's long awaited return with the last event here held in September 2015. The shift from September to April makes for a slightly warmer race coming out of Summer; and at the peak of the racing calendar, we will see some serious on-form racing from our top Age Groupers.
Athletes can expect a deep water start swim for Sprint, just out from the boat ramp, and beach start for the Super Sprint, Kids, and Mini Kids races. Closed roads along the waterfront and along the Ted Smout bridge offers athletes of all abilities a safe course, and who doesn't love a flat run!
Being the final race in the Nissan State Series race for this season, winners of Age Group categories can earn all important points - up to 15 points for crossing the line first in this Nissan State Series – Queensland Championship race, making all the difference in the final point tally for the series Age Group Champion Titles.
