TreX Port Stephens to host the Triathlon NSW State Championships and World Champs Qualifier
PORT STEPHENS, NSW – In breaking news, Triathlon New South Wales have announced that Port Stephens on the NSW Hunter Coast is set to host the NSW Cross Triathlon Championships in September 2022.
In2Adventure are thrilled to be working with Triathlon NSW, Destination NSW and the Port Stephens Council to deliver this showcase event which promises a world class course for state championship contenders. The event will also be a qualification round for athletes looking to secure a place in the Australian team at the Age Group Multisport World Championships in Ibiza, Spain.
The 2022/23 NSW Cross Triathlon State Championships will take place on Saturday 17th September 2022. Based in Port Stephens on the Fingal Bay foreshore the area boasts some of Australia’s most spectacular beaches and scenic, rugged coastlines offering the perfect backdrop for an action-packed off-road state championship.
TreX takes the traditional format of triathlon and mixes it with a huge helping of heart, guts, dirt and off-road action. The challenge is as much with mother nature as it is against other athletes.
Mayor Ryan Palmer congratulated In2Adventure on securing the prestigious state sporting event for the Port Stephens region.
“Port Stephens is the perfect location for the TreX Cross Triathlon – with spectacular waterways, stunning sand dunes, coastal walks and national parks - our environment will provide a race course that’s tough but a real adventure.
We love hosting events like the TreX Cross Triathlon – it’s not only great for our community, it’s great for our economy. By just being here, competitors and their families are supporting our local businesses.
We look forward to welcoming all to this amazing part of the world and wish the competitors the best of luck in securing a place at the championships in Spain.”
NSW State Championships contenders will tackle a challenging 1,000m swim in beautiful Fingal Bay, followed by 29kms of heart pumping XC (Cross Country) mountain biking in Tomaree National Park, and then finishing off with an 8km trail run traversing the expansive coastal vistas that Port Stephens is famed for. The event also includes sprint, junior, teaser, dirt kids, duathlon and aquabike courses so there’s something on offer for all ages and abilities.
