After 22 years of co-existing as separate events, the Sparke Helmore NBN Triathlon and Newcastle Foreshore Triathlons, who have traditionally both been staged in late summer around the harbour and beaches of Newcastle, have decided to bring all the events into the one weekend and create a format that will put Newcastle on the Triathlon map for years to come. Both events are working together for the mutual goal of staging a professional multi-sport event and raising funds for both the club and Hunter Medical Research Institute. The combined events are expected to attract over 3000 competitors and 10,000 spectators across the weekend.
The Triathlon Festival will be staged on the first Sunday in March ongoing, which for 2015 will be Friday 27, Saturday 28 Feb and 1 March. The format will include:
- Foreshore5 Twilight Run on Friday evening
- Newcastle Foreshore Triathlon, Women’s and Kids Triathlons on Saturday morning
- Sparke Helmore Sprint and Olympic Distance Triathlons on the Sunday morning.
