ENTRIES for the third annual bcu Coffs Tri on March 7-8 are now open online and filling fast.

Event organisers Village Sports are expecting record numbers after 650 competitors lined up on Jetty Beach in 2014 for an exciting weekend of triathlons.

This year's weekend of events includes races for children aged 5-14 on the Saturday, an Enticer Tri (375m swim/10km cycle /2.5km run) and the headline Olympic-distance triathlon (1.5km swim/40km Cycle/10km run) on the Sunday.

There's an option to compete as an individual or part of a team.

The spectacular open water swim is held inside the protected harbour with spectators getting a birds-eye view from the Jetty.

The two-lap bike course is fast yet challenging on a closed road out to Toormina and back to the harbour, while the run comprises two laps along the foreshores and recently completed southern break wall.

Village Sports is offering a total prize purse of $4,500 for open male and female category placegetters and is expecting to attract a high calibre of elite athletes.

Brad Kahlefeldt took out the 2014 Olympic distance event, with world-champion Michellie Jones claiming victory in the shorter enticer race.

Both athletes have promised to return in 2015 to try and defend their titles.

Not only is the bcu Coffs Tri a fantastic community event, all proceeds will go to local charities including Life Education, Camp Quality, Coffs Early Childhood Intervention and Coffs Coast Autism.

Since 2011, Village Sports has donated $110,000 to local community groups and volunteers from each of these organisations will be playing a very important role at the event, handing out water at the drink stations and helping the event run smoothly.

Entries can be made online at www.villagesports.com.au
