The region's residents are encouraged to get active this Father’s Day with the Bargara Triathlon Club hosting the Kalki Moon Duathlon at Mary Kinross Park.
Bargara Triathlon President Troy Austin said the family-friendly event was one for all ages and abilities.
“It’s an all ages family fun event, everyone is welcome so is walking or running,” Troy said.
“Anyone can join in whether you’re riding a BMX, road bike or mountain bikes.
“You don’t have to be a professional to race this event as it’s put on for the families so there is a playground for the kids and coffee for the mums and dads.”
The race routes include a run up to the rotunda at Innes Park followed by a bike ride along Rifle Range Road, Woongarra Scenic Drive, Watsons Road and Hughes Road.
The number of laps vary based on race distances, including:
- The Turtles event: an event for seven to 12-year-olds and is a 500-metre run, 2km bike ride, followed by another 500-metre run.
- Give It A Try: an event for 13 years and older and is a 2.5km run, 9km bike ride and 2.5km run.
- The Sprint event: an event for 14 years and older, and is a 5km run, 20km bike ride and 5km run.
Troy thanked Kalki Moon Distilling and Brewing which he said had been a long and strong supporter of the club and were sponsoring the event.
“Kalki Moon has been supporting Bargara Triathlon Club for a long time,” Troy said.
“The owner, Rick is really supportive of us and he’s always helping out with anything.”
