Along with Noosa, the Mooloolaba triathlon festival is the biggest in Australia.  It is not just about the age group race on the Sunday but a whole weekend of racing and events.

As usual we’ll have a big group of members racing hoping to translate their work of the last few months into a good result. The Tri Alliance tents will be there and for the first time we’ll have new members from the Sunshine Coast squad join us.

We will also be welcoming some members from the Cairns Crocs Club competing at Mooloolaba to the tents.  Be sure to say hello and make them feel welcome in our backyard. They will extend the invitation when we head to Cairns in June.

performanceAssisting on race day will be the team from Performance Physio and Rehab at Mooloolaba who will be available for massage and physio for Tri Alliance members We’ll also have plenty of room for friends and family to watch all the action.

Training wise those members racing will have an easier week to freshen up and ensure they’re 100% for the race.  Post race we’ll be having a get together at the Mooloolaba SLSC from 3pm Sunday to share war stories and enjoy the spoils of success.

On Saturday April 5th new Tri Alliance coaching team member and elite ITU athlete Shane Barrie will be taking a swim session around the new Challenge Gold Coast course.

Shane was first out of the water at Noosa and Nepean triathlons in 2013 and has extensive coaching experience at SLSC level and open water swimming.  The session will run from 10am -12pm and tides will be the same as race day. We will have water safety and IRB’s in the water plus buoys in the water so people can swim the exact course and pick up some tips from Shane.

There will be a bbq lunch to finish the day which family and friends are welcome to join. The start area at Currumbin is a beautiful part of the Gold Coast so for those travelling from Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast it is well worth the drive.

Cost is $15 for members and $25 for non members. Go to our registrations page to book in
