The 2014 Townsville Triathlon Festival is a two-day celebration of lifestyle, fitness and community participation staged along Townsville’s picturesque Strand.

Over the two days, the main activities take place in Townsville’s Strand Park, where the high-traffic transition area is located. The swim leg is just off the main Strand beach (Rockpool for the kids), the bike leg takes participants along The Strand and through neighbouring streets, and along Cape Pallarenda, and the run leg is along the beautiful Strand and Rowes Bay pathways.

Townsville City Council has endorsed the event yet again, backing the festival as a major partner in 2014.

More than 2,500 competitors took part in last year’s event, and many more spectators lined the Strand to cheer on their mates. This year organisers anticipate an increase in participants of approximately 30%.

The Townsville Triathlon Festival Inc. comprises seven key events:
