The series consists of 11 races from early November 2012 to April 2013. Based at Sorrento Beach they consist of a Swim leg from 300m to 600m and a Run leg of 3200m. We run shorter swim distances for competitors aged 11, 12 and 13 years of age as per TA rules.

After completing their first race each competitor is given a Handicap. There will awards for Best on Handicap in both Seniors (14 or above) and Juniors (13 or under) for the overall series. Our event sponsor provides prizes at each race.

As this is a Club event and subject to insurance requirements, all participants must be members of North Coast Triathlon Club either as a primary or secondary members.

We actively encourage all members to participate in this event. For new members it is the primary method of developing contact with others within the club. For established members it is a chance to renew rivalries. For all family members it is more than a race, with a bar-b-q after the race it is a chance to socialise, discuss upcoming events and organise training activities. Come and join the North Coast family, we look forward to you being involved.
