Once again, Triathlon South has been successful in bidding for two Age Group ITU World Championship qualifying races in 2018-19 for Australian Age Group team selection. Both events will open for entries closer to the event dates.
Cross Triathlon – 8 December 2018 – Roches Beach
With the World Championships in Spain in early 2019, the qualifying races had to be completed by early January Australia-wide. Triathlon South put in a bid for our usual Cross Triathlon to be brought forward to December to accommodate the tight schedule. With only three other Cross Triathlon qualifying races on the calendar, this may prove to be a go to race for those seeking selection to the Australian team for a trip to Pontevedra, Spain in April/May 2019!

Sprint Distance Triathlon – 19 January 2019 – Seven Mile Beach
It’s become a tradition for our small club to host this sprint distance triathlon at our spiritual home of Seven Mile Beach. With major changes to the course in 2018, we hope to once again offer a brilliant, low-key event with capped entry numbers to entice those seeking points for the Australian team competing in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2019. Note our event is not a draft legal race. If you wish to know more, download our event guide from our race in 2018.
