Isaac region locals and visiting athletes gave it their best ‘tri’ in the pool and on the road for the Moranbah Australia Day Triathlon.

With a total of 107 competitors competing for the title of 2019 Australia Day Triathlon Winner, a number of volunteers put up their hand to help out throughout the day and see the day move along with ease.

Mayor Anne Baker said the morning triathlon had become a fixture in the Australia Day calendar, kicking off the day’s celebrations in the Moranbah town centre.

A large field of competitors took part in the senior course comprising an 800m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run. The under 16s followed completing the junior course of a 400m swim, 5km bike ride and 1.5km run.

“It was great to see so many people giving it a go at this year’s triathlon,” Cr Baker said.

“Council encourages all residents to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle and provides a range of facilities for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy life to the full.”

“Congratulations to all the winners and participants in this year’s event.”

Cr Baker said Council acknowledged the support of Moranbah X-Fit, the Highlanders Swimming Club and Janelle Vitale Swim School in the staging of the 2019 event, and the Moranbah Freemasons for cooking the post-event community breakfast.
