In honour of the late Jackie Fairweather (nee Gallagher), this race promises to be something truly special. Jackie made an amazing contribution to triathlon and sport in general, and this event brings together many wonderful aspects of the Triathlon Australia Hall of Famer’s life.Held over Australia’s most popular triathlon distance, the Sprint, competitors will compete on a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run. Jackie’s love, of not only triathlon but also running, will be showcased at the event with an inclusive day for all to be a part of the celebration of an amazing woman.

The event also includes the Super Sprint (Enticer) and Miniman triathlon distances. For Sprint distance competitors, the Draft Legal race is a qualifying event for selection in the Australian Age Group Team at the 2018 ITU Sprint Triathlon World Championships to be held on our very own Gold Coast, Queensland.

Jackie Fairweather was one of the world’s premier triathletes and endurance athletes. Jackie’s impact on Triathlon, Athletics, High Performance Sport and people in general was more than just winning a World Title or Commonwealth Games Bronze medal, she truly had a passion to make a difference in peoples lives.
