As part of the ANZAC Day commemorations, the Free Radicals Tribe Triathlon Club will host the annual ANZAC 100 Challenge. This is Townsvilles’ 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 4:30am at Riverway pool where you will complete a 1km swim. Next up is a grueling 90 km out & back bike course up Herveys’ Range, out to Range Control and return to the starting point. This is where you will complete a 9km run along the leafy banks of the Ross 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 going until the last person has finished, where you will receive a bacon sandwich and an ANZAC biscuit. Remember this is not a race, it’s a personal challenge.
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.
