The Nissan State Series is back – bigger and better than ever, handpicked for your best season yet.
The series now incorporates thirteen challenging and diverse events right across Queensland and among them six Queensland Championships for age groupers. The Nissan State Series will kick off in July with the Greater Springfield Duathlon and TriPort Triathlon Festival.
With events in Queensland’s most unique locations, let the Nissan State Series take you to Hell andBack aka Goondiwindi - Hell of the West, north via the stunning Wide Bay and Capricorn Coast to Queensland’s tropics, Townsville & Port Douglas and south across the border for the iconic Kingscliff Triathlon. This is the destination triathlon series of your dreams.
Following the most successful season for the series with over 5,800 participants in the 2015/16 series, Triathlon Queensland have collaborated with Race Directors in the North to bring in three new events to the series; TriPort Triathlon Festival, Yeppoon Triathlon Festival and Townsville Tri Festival – delivering a genuine Queensland series.
As the only Championship triathlon series in Queensland, including all six multisport disciplines –Long Distance, Standard and Sprint Distance, Aquathlon, Duathlon and Cross Triathlon – it is the ultimate challenge for the multisport athlete and a true testament of all round performance, versatility and endurance across the season.
Triathlon Queensland Executive Director, Tim Harradine said As the guardians of triathlon in Queensland, we are focussed on enabling opportunities for every Queenslander to be involved in triathlon, from participation to performance and we believe the Nissan State Series provides this opportunity. The series is rewarding for both high performance age groupers and also presents a unique challenge for the beginner and every day triathlete with plenty of variety to keep things interesting. Set yourself a goal this season and track your progress across the series.
