Coral Coast 2020 – Race Director Message & Wave Start Times

Hi Everyone,

Well it has taken some organising, but the Coral Coast Triathlon is finally here!

I would like to thank all the members of the Cairns Crocs Committee for their help and support in making this race happen.

I would also like to thank TriMotivte for their ongoing support, and for handling the registration desk for us.

As we are all well aware, triathlon is an individual sport in the main, and with the pandemic affecting the world, even more so, so remember to bring Nutrition and Hydration so you can be self-reliant. We will 1 aid station on the run, and water at the finish.
This year, we have had to move to transition a little further south, to accommodate the requirements for distancing and density of persons.

As a result, from the swim to transition will be a little further than normal (Approx. 500m)
We have uploaded the start list, which includes the wave start times, and you time frame to arrive at registration.

Have a look and help us to follow our COVID plans by arriving at registration in the times listed, this will keep the grouping and massing of persons to a minimum.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all persons are required to answer the following questions as directed by government before participating in the Coral Coast Triathlon.

wetsuit at those temperatures.
