2023 Newman Triathlon – fun and fitness for the community

Published on Tuesday, 21 February 2023 at 11:14:35 AM

The highly-anticipated 2023 Newman Triathlon presented by Act-Belong-Commit is fast approaching and the community is being invited to participate in multiple ways.

A premier event in the Shire of East Pilbara, the Newman Triathlon is a fun event for people as young as seven years old. Starting and ending at the Newman Aquatic Centre, the day includes a whirlwind look at the Newman CBD, BBQ breakfast and prizes to be won.

Shire President Anthony Middleton said it was always wonderful to see the determination and teamwork displayed by participants, regardless whether they were entered individually or as part of a team.

“We’re pleased to announce the 2023 Newman Triathlon presented by Act-Belong-Commit will be held on Sunday 2 April, which gives you more than a month to get in some training,” he said. “Whether you’re participating in the Full Course, Short Course or Junior Course, there’s something for fitness fans of all abilities.

“Visit our website, or follow us on Facebook, to find all the information you need for this year’s event.”

Cr Middleton said undertaking a triathlon was not necessarily well-suited for everyone, so the Shire welcomes anyone to participate as a volunteer on the day. There is a variety of volunteer positions for people to take on for the event.

“Whether you want to be a lap recorder, a marshal, or run the water station, we will welcome you to the team,” he said.

“I would also like to thank our presenting partner Act-Belong-Commit, and all our sponsors, for coming on board and making the 2023 Newman Triathlon the best it can be."
