2'12 2XU Hervey Bay Triathlon
Hervey Bay MultiSports Festival
20th- 22nd April 2012
3 Days, 4 Events - back with more than ever before!
That's right the Hervey Bay Triathlon has now been expanded into a Multisports Festival spanning 3 days and 4 events!
We are expanding from the single event to hosting an annual Hervey Bay Multisports Festival. The feature event is the 2XU Hervey Bay Triathlon (an Olympic Distance Tri) that featuring the same 1500m calm bay swim, 2 * 20k fully closed loops on the bike and a shady near flat run beachside out & back 10k run. Total prize pool is up to just over $32,000 with $3,000 packages for first male & female paying down to fifth and the weekend prize pool over is over $35,000 including a $6,000 bike package of a Fuji D6 2.0 plus extras. 2XU are back as our title sponsor and last year’s winners Courtney Atkinson & Felicity Abram are keen to return. The feedback we received from all was fantastic so we are sure to reach our field target of over 1000 participants.
Last season saw 300 individuals and 50 teams (from first timer's to Olympians) enjoy a safe, fair, and fun triathlon experience. Over splendid course that everyone loved and with the added excitement of two laps on the bike (yes including twice up that hill). On Sunday the 22nd of April it will all be on again, strict field limits of 600 individuals (plus 150 teams, and 100 in the GoKids events) will ensure that the atmosphere stays friendly and transition area space second to none.
This year there will be 4 times the fun with extra events:
• Ocean Swims - the Hervey Bay Surf Lifesaving Club's 14th annual Pier to Pub ocean swim classic (3.4 or 1.6km),
• Kids triathlons - the Bmee GoKids events for 7-10 years & 11-14 years
• Even a Friday night "undie run" - a one mile sprint for charity from the Torquay Jetty to the Scarness Jetty.
Course maps for all events along with event information are available from the website.
From the Friday night fun run through the Sports Expo all weekend finally the Sunday night after party at BaysWater (and a lazy day down the beach on the Monday) to recover it will be another weekend to remember.
Continuing in '12 is a teams matching service - if you don't know anyone with whom you can form a team, don't worry, you can now enter a single leg and we will match you up with the some people from a similar demographic to for a team - details online.
