Over the weekend 300 triathletes took to the waters of the Mackay Harbour precinct to compete in the Mackay Triathlon Festival. Known for it’s fast, technical and challenging course, the swim started from the Mackay Surf Club with the cycle and run sections heading through the marina, which showcased the marina break-water. While some athletes were able to soak up the natural delights of the region such as the beautiful sugarcane fields, glistening Pioneer River and the famous North Queensland tropical ocean but other athletes were on a mission to earn points in this season’s Nissan State Series.
In the Olympic Distance event New South Wales athlete Nathan Miller took out the overall title in a time of 2 hours and 12 minutes. The first female Alise Selsmark from Red Dog Triathlon Training finished an impressive 3rd overall and only 10 minutes behind the winning male, Nathan Miller.

In the enticer event Mackay locals Cameron Wonnocott and Natasha Mallise managed to cross the line in first position and win their events.
