Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to host the 2022/23 Australian Cross Triathlon Championships
SUNSHINE COAST, QLD – In breaking news, Triathlon Australia have announced Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Hinterland is set to host the Australian Cross Triathlon Championships in October 2022.
This has been announced off the back of the advice that the Townsville Triathlon Festival is not able to host the Championship for the 2022/23 season. Although unfortunate that the Townsville event is not able to go ahead, the good news is that there will be an Australian Championships this season. In2Adventure are thrilled to be working with Triathlon Australia to deliver the event before the 31 January 2023 cut-off date; and even more excited that it will be hosted on the Sunshine Coast TreX course which promises a world class experience for national championship contenders.
The 2022/23 Australian Cross Triathlon Championships will take place on Saturday 22nd October 2022 in Landsborough in the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Courses include Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser, Dirt Kids, Duathlon and AquaBike, so there’s something on offer for those chasing a national championship title as well as those of all ages and abilities who are looking for some off-road action in this picturesque destination.
Based on the banks of spectacular Ewen Maddock dam the course showcases the very best of the Sunshine Coast hinterland with its stunning waterways, rainforest trails and fern-filled bushland. The course includes some of the best fast and flowing single track mountain bike trails, and gritty off-road running trails found anywhere in Australia.
Economic Development portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray congratulated IN2ADVENTURE on securing the prestigious national sporting event for the Sunshine Coast region.
“This is yet another example of our natural assets and national parks on the Sunshine Coast being recognised on a national scale”, said Cr O’Pray.
“We are proud to welcome athletes from across the country to our beautiful region – where they can enjoy all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer – a place to stay and play, as well as compete”.
Sunshine Coast MultiSport Festival
The Australian Cross Triathlon Championships will be an integral part of the Sunshine Coast MultiSport Festival which includes a full weekend of Off Road Action with TreX Cross Triathlon on Saturday and Trail Run Australia Sunshine Coast on Sunday, offering athletes of all levels the opportunity to discover the captivating hinterland terrain of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Qld Dirt Master Challenge
Participants also have the option to take on the Qld Dirt Master Challenge. To be crowned Dirt Master or Dirt Mistress Qld athletes will take on TreX Cross Triathlon and Saturday and Trail Run Australia on Sunday with the aim to record the fastest cumulative time across the festival.
