Townsville Triathlon Festival 2014

The Townsville Triathlon
When: 12th - 13th July 2014
Where: Townsville, Queensland


We’re proud to once again support the 2014 Townsville Triathlon Festival, a celebration of lifestyle, fitness and community participation staged along Townsville’s picturesque Strand.

Over two days, the main activities take place in Townsville’s Strand Park, where the high-traffic transition area is located. The swim leg is just off the main Strand beach, the bike leg takes participants along the Strand and through neighbouring streets, and the run leg is along the beautiful Strand pathway.

More than 3,000 competitors took part in last year’s event, and many more spectators lined the Strand to cheer on the participants.

Are you or a loved one competing in Townsville Tri? You can track their, or your own, progress during the race with the Subaru Tracker.
