Comment News (Armadale) - - Sport -

AF­TER two sea­sons away, elite triathlon is back in Ar­madale. The SunS­mart Triathlon Se­ries will re­turn to Cham­pion Lakes next month, with more than 1000 par­tic­i­pants ex­pected to take part in the event.

The City of Ar­madale Triathlon is the third race of the se­ries and will cater to all lev­els, with com­pe­ti­tions for elites and novices, as well as a tad­pole cat­e­gory for those aged seven to 11.

Race di­rec­tor David Budge said he was excited to see the se­ries back in Ar­madale.

“Cham­pion Lakes has al­ways pro­vided one of the best triathlon cour­ses in West­ern Aus­tralia, and af­ter a brief hia­tus we’re pleased to come back,” he said.

“The race will of­fer a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for elite triath­letes to show off their speed and de­ter­mi­na­tion but it will also be an ideal plat­form for first-timers to give a triathlon a go.

“Most peo­ple think that to do a triathlon you need to be su­per fit, which is not the case – any­one with a good base fit­ness can take on our en­ticer (short-course) triathlon.”

The City of Ar­madale Triathlon is on Fe­bru­ary 18 at the Cham­pion Lakes Re­gatta Cen­tre.
