21st Anniversary Quarry Mining - Maitland Triathlons
Celebrating 21 years, the Maitland Triathlon started way back in 1994 and grew to becoming a large event which was highly anticipated and much enjoyed. After a five year hiatus, it was resurrected in 2017 and hailed a huge success, with the event growing in 2018, with a new lapped format. It celebrated it’s 20th anniversary in style.
Local Mining and Construction company Quarry Mining will again sponsor the event along with Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Together, the two companies are sponsoring Rod Marshdale to participate in the event. Rod’s life was saved by the quick work of the rescue chopper and has since undertaken a double lung transplant. Rod will participate on Sunday as part of the Quarry Team.
The event will be included on the Hunter Interclub Series calendar, affording further opportunities to for individuals to earn points for their club and wear their club kit with pride.
