The 4th leg of the 4 part race series will take place on Sunday the 28th October down at Suncoast Beach.

Racing will get underway at 7am sharp with the 10km run event. This race is an ideal opportunity for the runners to set some PB’s along the flat and fast 2 loop 10km run course. The Rookie Triathlon which has exploded with well over 100 + youngsters and newbies toeing the line each and every race, starts at 7:10am. They compete over a very short and totally safe 200m sea swim followed by a 5km cycle on roads that are closed to traffic to then end off with a flat 2.5km run leg. The Rookie event is an ideal starter event for the youngsters and newbies who want to get a feel for the sport of triathlon.
