Since 1994 the Sparke Helmore NBN Triathlon has been Newcastle’s premier participant sporting event. Over 21 years this great community sporting event has raised in excess of $450,000 contributing much-needed funds to the Newcastle based Hunter Medical Research Institute and other local sport and service groups. The main triathlon event regularly attracts close to 3000 novice and serious competitors, with an additional 5,000 spectators and volunteers joining in a celebration of sport and healthy lifestyles.
In 2014 the event will continue the 3 day festival which incorporates the Foreshore5 Twilight Fun Run on Friday, TriJunior and Westfield Kotara Women's Triathlon on Saturday morning, plus a main triathlon on Sunday. Corporate and team marquees, a large health and fitness expo and one of Australia’s most picturesque working harbours create an atmosphere which leaves a lasting memory for everyone involved. This event has a proud history of being one of the Hunter Region's largest and most successful health and fitness days and will be staged on the 14 - 16th March 2014.
Sparke Helmore Lawyers proudly sponsors this triathlon through the firm's community assistance scheme.
