WOMEN ONLY – LADIES COME AND CHECK THIS OUT!!!
Woohoo girls – this is your chance to dominate the world of triathlon!! Open to all ladies, this event really caters for the beginner!
Our February event is the Sonya Brazil Memorial Women’s Only Triathlon. About twenty years ago, Sonya mentioned to her sister Angela that she wanted to have a go at triathlons: she loved swimming and running. This particular tri was the first one she participated in and she really enjoyed it – she went on to compete in other events with the Mackay Triathlon Club that year taking home a couple of trophies. Sonya died tragically in 1999 and since 2000 the race has been named in her honour.
Due to popular demand we have a second Women’s Only in October. The race distance for both events is 200m swim, 8km bike & 2km run. Flippers or floaties can be used to get you through the swim if needed – teams are welcome but no sneaking the blokes in!!
Due to the numbers we get to these events, they are held in the quiet surrounds of Mirani. The race is staged in waves with 10 ladies going off at a time. When registration opens the earlier you register, the earlier your wave start.
