The sixth annual Yungaburra Triathlon is once again going to grace the roads and waterways of the Tinaburra Peninsula.
The triathlon, to be held on Sunday April 5, will be open for registrations until March 15
Last year, the Yungaburra Triathlon attracted almost 600 participants to the event as well as over 1000 enthusiastic spectators.
Tablelands Regional Council Mayor Joe Paronella describes the triathlon as an “exciting time of the year”
“It’s an exciting time of the year for Yungaburra and for the Tablelands,” he said.
“We always look forward to the festival style atmosphere on the triathlon.
“The races are held on the Tinaburra Peninsula and we’re keeping road closures to a minimum.”
Saturday will see the race check-in with course and transition familiarisation while Sunday will have the sprint, standard, enticer and junior events as well as a Mates4Mates relay.
Road closures are expected on Sunday at 6:30am-11:30am and 2:30pm-3:30pm, while the boat ramp at Yungaburra will be closed from 6am to 4pm.
Organising Committee member, Councillor Samantha Banks is encouraging locals to come down and support the annual event.
“There was an electric atmosphere here last year with the number of people out,” she said.
“Our chosen charity this year is Mates4Mates and 10% of all registration fees are being donated.
“There’s great prize money for competitors and food and drinks will be available to keep spectators on their feet.”
Volunteers are also being sought to help with race check-in, set-up, marshalling and in the recovery tent and registrations, to volunteer head to https://yungaburratriathlon.org/ or contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
