Early bird prices for the bcu Coffs TRI next March are ending soon, so if you’re planning on competing, event organisers urge you to take advantage of the early bird pricing before Friday, December 8.
The annual bcu Coffs Tri is being held for the sixth time on March 3 and 4 2018. The multisport weekend includes fun events for children aged six and over, as well as an ‘enticer’ triathlon for those new to the sport, and the headline Standard Distance race for individuals and teams.
The Standard (Olympic) Distance Triathlon (1.5km swim/40km cycle/10km run) is a World Championship Qualifying event as well as the NSW State Championships and is expected to attract professional and age group athletes from all over Australia.
Race Director, Noel Phillips said, “We are expecting record numbers for next year’s event given that it is a qualifying event for the 2018 World Championships which are being held on the Gold Coast. Triathletes often have to travel overseas to compete at this level so with next year’s event being held on home soil, we are expecting a surge in entries.
The female winner of the 2017 Coffs Tri, Celia Sullohern has confirmed she will be returning to try and defend her title. Since her victory in March, she has continued her winning streak, taking out Sydney’s City to Surf in August and the Melbourne marathon in October.
“We are delighted Celia is returning to do the Coffs TRI. She has a very busy training and racing schedule and it’s great she sees it as an important event on her calendar,” said Phillips.
Whether you’re an elite athlete or just starting out, the bcu Coffs Tri has something for everyone. It is a little over three months away, and is a great goal to work towards over the festive season. Challenge yourself in an individual event or grab some friends or family members and put a team together.
The bcu Coffs Tri is on the weekend of 3-4 March 2018 for ages six and over with kids races, an Enticer and the headline Standard Distance event with individual and team options available.
