PORT STEPHENS – The spectacular coastlines, beaches and national parks of Port Stephens are set to play host to a weekend of off-road action with triathletes and trail runners set to descend upon the region on 21 and 22 September.
Athletes will be gearing up for the first round of the national TreX Cross Triathlon Series where they will take on the challenge of a swim, mountain bike and trail run in a race to the finish line on the iconic Fingal Bay Beach.
TreX Port Stephens contenders will tackle a challenging 1,000m swim in beautiful Fingal Bay, followed by 25km of heart pumping XC (Cross Country) mountain biking in Tomaree National Park, and then finishing off with an 8km trail run experiencing the expansive coastal vistas that Port Stephens is famed for. The event also includes sprint, junior, teaser and dirt kids courses with something for all ages and abilities.
Round one of Trail Run Australia national series, which takes runners to some of Australia’s most iconic and spectacular destinations will kick off in Port Stephens, NSW with a half marathon, 11.5k or 6k trail run based around the Fingal Bay coastline and Tomaree National Park and event organisers are excited to announce a one day only opening special extravaganza for both events.
