Safety Bay IGA
Enduro Triathlon & Kids Triathlon
A Message from Rockingham Triathlon Club
Rockingham Triathlon Club are looking forward to welcoming all competitors and spectators to the 2022/23 Rockingham Triathlon Clubs Summer series of Triathlons
The Safety Bay IGA Enduro Triathlon is one of fun, you get to do two triathlons back-to-back! In the Enduro format you do a swim/bike/run/swim/bike/run format, it’s an exciting challenge. The SuperEnticer is a normal triathlon with a slightly longer swim and run compared to our usual enticer length. The kids triathlons are also the usual format with multiple distances (please go to the kids races tab for more information).
The triathlon takes place on the beautiful Rockingham foreshore and boosts one of the safest swims you will find in triathlon! The swim takes place in the crystal-clear, shallow, and flat waters of Rockingham beach, where you can stand at any point throughout the swim if you need to. The multi-lap bike courses have you biking up and down the flat and fast Rockingham Beach Road with the multi-laps allowing your supporters to give you a big cheer every time you go past! The runs have you running along the foreshore footpath with ocean views and natural bush surrounds.
Rockingham Triathlon Club is pleased to be able to invite the wider triathlon community to come along and join our members for a chance to race. The RTC Triathlons are still at their basis club events. Our races are organised and run completely by volunteers, for this reason we please ask for your kindness and patience, and please don’t forget to thank our wonderful volunteers throughout the course.
Rockingham Triathlon Club is an all-inclusive, family friendly club, so please also show consideration to your fellow competitors, especially on the bike course as not all of us have the same level of bike handling skills.
Once again, we can’t wait to see you all down at the Rockingham Foreshore for what will be a fantastic, fun filled day!
The event area and transition will be located at the Alexander Street car park on Rockingham Beach road, Rockingham foreshore.
