TEAM OPTIONS: If you do not feel confident enough to complete a full event on your own, then why not grab your best mate and enter as a team.  All events except December are open to both club members as well as non-members.

    Hi I’m interested in doing some triathlons am wondering how to go about it or who to speak to thanks you.

    • Hi Michael.
      Information to all our events including courses, maps and previous newsletters etc is all on our website. Currently only the 2015 calendar is up because 2016 is currently being drafted. Most events are open to everyone however some events are closed to only members of Triathlon Australia. This will be evident on the calendar. If you would like to be on our mailing list please send an email to mackaytri@gmail.com or contact our Club President (details in contacts).
      Thanks, MTC

    Unfortunately I have left the online registration for the Mirani womens only Tri too late. I am wondering if you are still able to register on the day?
    Thank you.

    Hello, I know life is really busy for everyone, and most if not all have full time jobs and are dedicated and passionate Mackay Triathletes and unpaid for your amazing efforts (enough sucking up).

    I really do applaude you all.

    Just checking when we might see the results for the ladies tri on the 23rd oct?

    • Hi Leisa.
      We have sent the results to our race director for approval as we had to follow up on a couple of times. We should have them and photos up shortly. We are still acquiring all photos at present.
      Thanks, MTC
