Looking for that beach body for the upcoming Summer holidays?
Well the perfect opportunity to shed those unnecessary kilos is of course the Kurnell Triathlon on the 4th of December 2016.
The Kurnell Triathlon is one of the longest sprint series still running in Australia. John Holt OAM created the Kurnell Triathlon Series back in 1991, where for the first time in triathlon history, an enticer to full Olympic distance series is run over four races.
The Kurnell Triathlon is a part of The Triathlon Series and is one of the last major triathlons in Sydney for 2016. It is always a highly anticipated event on the Triathlon NSW calendar and one that should not be missed!
So don’t hesitate any further! Registrations for the wonderful event closes next Wednesday, the 30th of November, 2016.

Kurnell Fun Facts:
- Kurnell Peninsula, historically significant and naturally unique, is nestled at the Northern end of the Sutherland Shire. It was here on 29 April 1770 that Lieutenant (later Captain) James Cook, in command of his first epic voyage of exploration, anchored His Majesty’s Bark Endeavour in a ‘tolerably well sheltered’ bay and landed on its southern shore.
- Large coastal sand dunes are also a feature of the peninsula and a favourite location for movie makers. Feature films Mad Max:Beyond Thunderdome, Phar Lap, and Forty Thousand Horsemen:The Fighting Anzacs were filmed there. The popular local TV series White Collar Blue, was filmed largely in the Shire, also used the dunes as a location.
- A simple sandstone monument marks the landing place at Kurnell and a tall red buoy about 400 metres off shore marks the anchor site in Botany Bay.
- John Holt was later awarded an Order of Australia medal for his services to the sports of Lifesaving and Triathlon. A highly successful surf ironman in his own right, John was founding President of Cronulla Triathlon Club, established the Kurnell race series, and was a Triathlon NSW Secretary.
