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 28th annual Sparke Helmore Newcastle City Triathlon was held on Sunday 21 February 2021—staged from the Foreshore Park area on Newcastle Harbour and one of the most picturesque courses in Australia.
Once again, the atmosphere was electric with spectators close to the action on the Foreshore of Newcastle Harbour.
Sparke Helmore staff and families support the cause by volunteering to help out with race activities and take part in the Triathlon's numerous events. According to Sparke Helmore Partner Darren Rankine, who heads up the Sparke Helmore Triathlon committee and who has participated in the event for the last five years—“This is a great event that really brings the community together and one which Sparke Helmore is proud to be involved with. It is always great to see so many people competing, volunteering and cheering everyone on throughout the event.“
Newcastle Managing Partner Alan McKelvey, who volunteers each year, along with his children says, “We really look forward to being part of the event each year. The Triathlon is a chance for our staff and their families to band together within the community for what is always a fantastic day out.”
Thank you to all the volunteers and congratulations to all the winners! And to see some of the action, watch the 2021 event highlights video.
