In late April triathletes from around Australia will visit Bargara to compete in the inaugural Auswide Bank Spirit Triathlon.  

Handpicked by Triathlon Queensland, the Bargara event is one of only 12 State Series competitions being held in 2022-23 that enables competitors to accumulate points to take out coveted state-wide awards.  

Bargara Triathlon Club President Colin Stollery said the Auswide Bank Spirit Triathlon would be a whole of community event. 

“Non-members can enter and there are plenty of prizes on offer thanks to our generous sponsors,” Colin said. 

“There is also a ‘give it a try’ category which is a 400 m swim, 10 km bike and 2.5 km run. We welcome spectators, and will also hold other small community events and activities.

“Attracting a State Series competition is a coup for our Club, and will deliver wider economic benefits for local businesses, accommodation providers and the broader Bundaberg community.”

Showcasing the spectacular Bundaberg Region coastline, the event includes a 750m swim at Kelly’s Beach, a 20km bike ride around Durdins Road, Hughes Road and Causeway Drive, and a 5km run from Archies Beach to the Basin.

The Club will also host the Club Bargara Lighthouse Run Festival from Christens Park to the lighthouse at Burnett Heads, also with shorter distances, on June 4.
