About Kingscliff & the Triathlon
We are thankful to the many community stakeholders and residents in Kingscliff and the surrounding communities for welcoming the inaugural Tweed Coast Holiday Parks Kingscliff Triathlon back in March 2010.
Located on the Tweed Coast, Kingscliff is a beach community offering a pristine, family-friendly destination that provides beach and estuary access for swimming, surfing, fishing and water sports. A number of well-known sporting teams represent the local area, including the Cudgen Hornets, the local rugby league club who play home games at Ned Byrne Field.
Kingscliff welcomed its first triathlon in 2010 and has hosted two triathlons at the beginning and end of each summer each year since.
The "Kingy Tri" was created as a community sporting event to celebrate the Tweed and get the whole family active. While in the years since, the traitlon hosted State Championships and World Qualification races, we stay true to our fun, personal, and local roots.
The Kingscliff Triathlon holds a longstanding tradition of fundraising for the Cudgen Headland SLSC, and a number of other community groups including Tweed Raiders JRL, Kingscliff Rotary, Murwillumbah Venurer Scouts, Murwillumbah Public School, Tweed Valley Triathletes, TAFE, and Pottsville Men's Shed. Our goal this year is to raise $7000 for these local groups. Additionally we are seeking to employ $4500 in labour services directly from the Tweed.
Businesses are welcome to promote their services and community groups are invited to be part of the event delivery. We are always seeking local products for promotions and local tourism information to encourage families to return to the area.
