Kingscliff Triathlon event organiser - NX Sports in partnership with Triathlon Australia is proud to welcome the addition of a draft legal format triathlon to be held at the upcoming Kingscliff Triathlon on November 20th, 2022.
The Kingscliff Triathlon, held twice annually, already includes a large array of triathlon distances for all ages and abilities to enjoy including the standard, sprint, tempta, aqua bike and kids events. NX Sports have been a key driver in their delivery of creative and exciting events which have supported the growth of multisport events in Queensland and New South Wales all the way from their NXGen Discover Tri Kids Triathlons all the way through to long course events such as the Tweed Enduro.
Thanks to NX Sports commitment and passion, Kingscliff will welcome a draft legal triathlon to allow development athletes to have yet another great opportunity to compete in this exciting draft legal race format. The draft legal event will be held over the tempta distance 300M/10KM/2.5KM on November 20th and see some of the nation’s top male and female draft legal endorsed athletes (D.O.B 2009+) competing to take line honours.
It’s expected that many of the junior and youth triathletes competing will come into the event with great form and use this event as a great opportunity to gain additional racing experience of the draft legal race format. Following the draft legal Kingscliff event, many of these same athletes will be eyeing off the Super Sprint Race Weekend in December.
Mathew Sundstrom Head of QLD State Services – Triathlon Australia said that ‘the event will be an exciting opportunity for many of our draft legal endorsed athletes to compete in Kingscliff where we expect a great turnout from Elite, Junior and U23 triathletes. We are excited to see athletes racing hard at this event and provide yet another exciting addition to the event. Finally, I would like to extend a big thank you to NX Sports for their hard work and commitment towards creating these types of opportunities for the next generation of triathlon stars’.
Mike Crawley, Director of NX Sports said that ‘NX is proud to offer the unique draft legal race discipline amongst its existing program of races and activities. We see this fast-action racing to be a regular feature on our future Kingy Tris and Enduro events’.
