Oceania Cup Race, Standard Distance, 12th June 2021

 

 

 

 

Ancient rivalries clash at the Oceana Cup! Featuring Australia’s  top male and female triathletes, this is certainly not an event to miss.

The 2021 Oceania Standard Distance Championship will be held on Saturday 12 June, followed by the 2021 Oceania Sprint Cup on Saturday 26 June.

The two races will provide athletes from both sides of the ditch a valuable opportunity to test their skills under hot and humid conditions, mimicking those expected in Tokyo this July. On that day, The Green & Gold will take on the Kiwis in a 40km  cycle along sections of Port Douglas Road, Davidson Street and Garrick Street. Sections of the roads will be temporarily closed with diversions in place to ensure residents and visitors can travel into and out of town.

Our iconic Four Mile Beach will play host to the 1.5km swim , while Macrossan Street will allow onlookers to be close to the action and cheer on our national stars as they run down the main street.

Due to the fast paced nature of an event of this scale, volunteers will be required for both action packed days of racing.

“Save the date in your calendar, bring a chair and your loudest voice – this is something that will go down in history.”
