NOT fit enough to compete in the bcu Coffs Tri solo?

You’re not alone but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go. Race organisers are urging you to give it a go with mates.

With teams like ‘Not fit enough to go solo’, ‘Straight off the couch’ and ‘Are we there yet’ already entered you won’t be alone.

“What better way to kick start your new year’s fitness resolutions than by entering a triathlon. Committing to an event with others is a great way to stay healthy and fit, with the added incentive of not wanting to let down your team mates,” event director Noel Phillips said.

“While some individuals take the event very seriously, vying for a podium position or a PB, others join a team to push themselves hard in one discipline or simply for a bit of fun.

“Doing your first triathlon as part of a team is a great introduction to the sport. A lot of people are confident in one or two disciplines but not all three, so competing as part of a team can be very rewarding and lots of fun.”

There has been a strong number of local business teams entering – guaranteeing friendly rivalry – and teams of family members.

For those who don’t have a full team Village Sports can help put individuals in touch with each other to find a swimmer, cyclist or runner.

The bcu Coffs Tri has three team categories: Male, Female and Mixed with prizes for the first three place-getters in each division.

The bcu Coffs Tri Standard (Olympic) Distance teams event comprises a 1.5km ocean swim in the protected harbour, a 40km cycle and a two-lap, flat run around the picturesque harbour foreshores. Roads are completely closed for the cycle leg ensuring a safe and enjoyable course.

All bcu Coffs Tri events on the weekend of 3-4 March start and finish at the Coffs Harbour Jetty.

The event offers something for everyone, with races for children aged 6-12, and an enticer event on the Saturday afternoon, with the headline Standard Distance individual and team races on Sunday morning.
