Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club to host Ladies event

Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club’s women’s members.

COFFS Harbour Triathlon Club will be holding a special Ladies Triathlon Race on Sunday, 3 March at Coffs Harbour Jetty.

The ‘Finish Lines, not Finish Times’ event will have a focus on encouraging women to give Triathlon a go.

Supported by Triathlon NSW, the free event will feature gift bags and random prize draws on the day, as well as a free BBQ and fruit breakfast following the event.

Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club president Julie Whitton encouraged women of the Coffs Coast to come and give Triathlon a crack.

“It’s a fun sport that is very inclusive and welcoming, and rather than just one sport you get three,” she said.

“It is an individual sport, but you are surrounded by a group.

“It seems daunting to start with, but as long as they are physically active, anyone can do it.”

On the day, women can choose from two different race distances; the sprint distance featuring a 750m swim, 20km bike ride, and a 5km run, or the enticer distance, featuring a 300m swim, 10km bike ride, and a 2.5km run.

Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club welcomes athletes of all abilities to compete in the local club races that they stage each fortnight during the triathlon season.

They pride themselves on being a friendly and social club that welcomes new members and visiting triathletes.

Coffs Harbour Triathlon Club’s season runs from October to May, with regular club races held on Sundays at Coffs Harbour Jetty.
