TriYamba set to run next February

The third annual Yamba Triathlon Festival will be returning to the Clarence River foreshore on 27 February, 2016 as part of Elite Energy’s renowned TriSeries. Yamba is set to reap the benefits of increased visitation and a boost to the regions visitor economy as hundreds of triathletes and their families get set to call the town home as part of this two day event. TriYamba will form part of an eleven race series and due to its central location and proximity to Brisbane, the Gold Coast and even Sydney, it’s expecting to be another successful weekend of elite and mass participation racing. Elite Energy CEO, Mark Emerton believes that Yamba provides an ideal and natural landscape for long distance events and is excited to be returning to this coastal hotspot in 2016. “We’re very grateful for the likes of Clarence Valley Council to ensure we could return to Yamba next year. “It’s such a great destination and definitely one of our growing events and attracts some big numbers. We’re looking forward to doing it all again.” Clarence Valley Council will provide sponsorship to the value of $10,000 for the third year running. “We are very happy to sponsor the Yamba Triathlon and we can’t wait to welcome all the competitors and their families and cheer them along.” Mayor Richie Williamson said. “It’s a great sporting event and one of our flagships in the Sports Tourism program, which is all about attracting visitors to the area to boost the local economy.” Six separate races will be held, including the signature Standard distance; the high speed Sprint; the more welcoming distances in the Enticer and Enforcer; the ever popular kids MINIMAN and either a 2km or 5km Fun Run. In 2014 TriYamba attracted a strong crowd of entrants of all ages and abilities from elites, beginners and kids. Registrations for TriYamba are now open.
