First race for Port Macquarie Triathlon Club's duathlon is on June 25

As the temperature drops, the action will be heating up at McInherney Park for the first race of Port Macquarie Triathlon Club’s Midcoast Windows duathlon series on Sunday, 25 June.

Club members and newcomers are encouraged to join in the run-ride-run event which kicks off at 7.30am.

New club president Ben Johnson said the three-race series was a popular way for triathletes to stay fit during the off-season.

“The race format will be a 2.5km run, 18km ride and 2.5km run and juniors will also be catered for,” Johnson said.

“We’d love to get some new faces along to meet some of our members and try a duathlon in a friendly and supportive environment.”

Registration is from 6.30am to 7.15am, ahead of a 7.30am start. The race is included in club membership or non-members can pay a $10 race fee on the day.

Memberships for the 2017-18 triathlon season are now available and include free entry to summer and winter club races, training sessions and social events.
