Each year professional athletes and enthused amateurs from around Australia take part in one of Newcastle's premier sporting events, the Sparke Helmore Newcastle City Triathlon.
The 30th annual Sparke Helmore Newcastle City Triathlon will be held on Sunday 12 November 2023, expecting 1000 entrants and some 2000 spectators. This year, the Triathlon will be a two race format with some old favourites racing category prizes up for grabs. Still catering for novice and serious triathletes, entries are open to individuals who can complete three legs on their own (swim, cycle and run) and to relay teams (participants competing one leg each). There will also be a junior/school age race for the first time.
Emma Gruschka, Partner says "We are excited to be celebrating the Sparke Helmore Newcastle City 30th Anniversary Triathlon! In commemorating three decades of the Tri, this year holds a distinct significance. With our origins tracing back to Newcastle in 1882, we take immense pride in upholding our legacy of community support. We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating together!"
