The stunning harbour precinct and blue mile of Wollongong City will come alive again this April with a festival of fitness, health and family fun that offers everyone the chance to “have a go” or come along and enjoy the colour and spectacle of the sport of triathlon.
The Peoplecare triTheGong triathlon festival offers races for all ages and abilities. Enter as an individual or get some friends together and be part of a team and taste the excitement, exhilaration and sense of accomplishment that comes with participating in this festival.
|Who is Peoplecare?
You’ve probably seen Peoplecare’s logo around a lot recently on the triathlon circuit and as the naming rights sponsor of Tri the Gong and a presenting partner of the Husky Tri. But what does Peoplecare do?
Peoplecare is a not-for-profit health insurer based in Wollongong. Peoplecare provides great value private health insurance and fantastic customer service.
Elite Energy have partnered with Peoplecare to bring you Tri the Gong in April 2019 and will be bringing their chill out zone and games to a number of events this season. We hope you enjoy them and take full advantage of the chance to relax after the race and let the kids have some fun.
