After the problems at our last event in Mission Beach with last minute permit cancellations we were reluctant to open registration for Yorkeys until we had everything in place. We didn’t want to cancel the last event on our calendar so the team worked extremely hard to produce new traffic management plans and applications to Council and Police.
Please be mindful there are a number of parties involved in putting on a race; TQ are our governing body and ensure we have all of the appropriate documentation prior to sanctioning a race. They have been nothing but supportive in allowing us to put on a Duathlon without the need to cancel the race entirely. Please rest assured that we are working closely with all stakeholders coming into the 2015 race season.
Everything is now in place and we have a Duathlon ready to go!
The Yorkeys Knob Duathlon is the last event on our race calendar for 2014 so we hope everyone supports our efforts and jumps in and registers. It will be a great event and you will notice significant changes to improve overall athlete safety. This includes a partial road closure on Sims Esplanade and reduced speed limits on Yorkeys Knob Road.
We still need volunteers to help so if you have friends or family who can assist or you aren’t racing yourself, please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
See you on Sunday!
