Run. Swim. Pedal. It’s on. The Latrobe Valley Triathlon Club brings back the renowned Winter Triathlon back for 2013. Athletes from all over Australia and around the world will gather on 8 August in Hazelwood Pondage, VIC to compete in three events. First up is the Fun Distance Triathlon, which is more or less geared towards the casuals. This event consists of 200-meter swimming, 12-kilometer biking, and a 2-kilometer run. Another event is the Sprint Distance Triathlon. This one takes the challenge up a notch as participants will get to compete in 500-meter swimming, 24-kilometer biking, and a 5-kilometer run. And then there’s the Olympic Distance Triathlon, which is tailor-made for the unrelenting competitor. Comprised of 1.5-kilometer swimming, 36-kilometer biking, and a 9-kilometer run, this one figuratively—and literally—demands you to go the extra mile.
The 2013 Winter Triathlon is a great warm-up for those looking to be a part of the Vegas or London World Championships. If you’re not planning to go to either one, it’s a fun event nonetheless that should put your willpower and physical ability to the test. Do register right away, though, as there are only 150 slots in each of the events.
Not racing? Try betting.
Signing up for the 2013 Winter Triathlon isn’t the only way to be part of the event, though. If you failed to register on time or your bones just don’t feel like swimming, biking, and running, you can still join the fun by placing a bet on your triathlete of choice. Yep, you can have your own “horse” in the races by placing your bets on au.freebets.com or Betfair, which are two of the leading and most reliable sports betting services online.
