Organisers hope to build Coffs Coast Triathlon into iconic event

DETERMINED to showcase Coffs Harbour's natural beauty and the region's love of sport, Sinclair Black and Mick Maley are hoping to develop the BCU Coffs Coast Triathlon into an iconic event.

On its inaugural run, the triathlon will draw competitors from throughout Australia to the Coffs Coast on March 2 and 3.

With no major Coffs triathlons held since early in the last decade, Coffs Harbour Running Festival and Jetty Swims event organiser Maley and Black have combined their passion for the sport to revive the concept this year.

"Mick and I have always felt very passionately about the harbour and believed it was the perfect course to hold a triathlon event," race organiser Black said.

"The course has so much potential and the jetty provides a great vantage point for spectators. We have already had enough nominations for the Olympic-length event to be at 70 per cent capacity."

The 51.5km race will involve competitors swimming 1.5km across the harbour; a 40km bike ride from the Jetty Foreshore to Sawtell and back and a 10km run.

Black said the triathlon was open to everyone.

"Anyone can enter and there will be a shorter aquathon, an enticer race for those wanting to compete but not up to the full Olympic length as well as an option for teams to enter," he said.

"We want to develop this event like the Byron and Noosa triathlon."
