Orange Welcomes NSW's Best Junior Athletes to the TNSW Super Sprint Weekend

The Central West triathlon hub of Orange will again welcome the best Youth, Junior and U23 athletes to Gosling Creek for the annual Triathlon NSW Super Sprint Weekend in November.

The two day event, delivered by Orange Cycling & Triathlon Club (OCTC), is designed to be inclusive of all Junior Triathlon Australia members, with skills sessions, a non-drafting super sprint and a Splash & Dash event on the program alongside valuable draft legal racing opportunities for our talented Pathway Development athletes.

Saturday, November 28th will feature an opportunity for these ITU draft legal endorsed athletes to race in both an Aquathon, and a draft legal Super Sprint. All races on the Saturday will be professionally timed and lunch is also included in the price. This packed race schedule is also a good opportunity for our athletes to work on their nutrition and recovery protocols, simulating larger national events like Runaway Bay Super Sprint Race Weekend.

Sunday, November 29th will afford a range non-timed events for all athletes ages 6 + and is FREE for all Triathlon Australia members, plus there is a FREE participation medal thanks to OCTC. However the main event on Sunday will be the ITU Mixed Team Relay, a relatively new and exciting format in triathlon that will make its debut in the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. 

The introduction of the Billigence Pathway Championship Series this year has added another layer on top of this already popular event, with the Super Sprint heats & finals and the Mixed Team Relay doubling up as both the State Championships and Round 3 of the Series. Even more exciting is the lure of $1500 in prize money, thanks to our amazing sponsors.

With Championship Series points and prize money on the line for our Youth, Junior and U23 athletes, there is sure to be some fast and fierce racing around the newly refurbished internal cycling track at Gosling Creek. 

Our thanks go to OCTC, in particular Phil Tudor, for again supporting and delivering such an awesome race weekend for our junior members.
