As part of the ANZAC Day commemorations, the Free Radicals Tribe Triathlon Club will host the annual ANZAC 100 Challenge. This is Townsville’s defining long course event and is perfectly timed to test your training going forward to Cairns 70.3 or Ironman. No one said it would be easy, in fact it’s hard!
The challenge will start before dawn at 5:00am at Northern Beaches Leisure Centre where you will complete a 1km swim. Next up is a grueling 90 km out & back bike course up Herveys’ Range and return to the starting point. This is where you will complete a 9km run along the shady pathways of North Shore & the banks of the Bohle River to finish under the arch.
You will have completed a 100km challenge in memory of the ANZACs. As you cross the finish line you will be presented with your ANZAC 100 club pin in recognition of your efforts. There will be a BBQ breakfast running until the last person has finished. Remember this is not a race, it’s a personal challenge.
This event holds a TQ special event status and you may take out a One Day Membership for $25 if you are not an FRT or TA member on the day of the challenge. Also there is a 15 month membership package available from the 1st April for new members at a cost of $156 TA fee + $60 FRT fee for Adults. It is available for purchase online from Triathlon Queensland Membership, just make sure you select Free Radicals Tribe as your club when registering.
NOTE: Lights are MANDATORY for the bike leg and you will not be able to take part in the event without them.
All proceeds go to Townsville – Legacy.
