Triathlon Victoria Season Launch at Yarrawonga Mulwala Multisport Festival

The Yarrawonga Mulwala Multisport Festival (YMMF) is proud to announce that the Mulwala Water Ski Club are the naming rights sponsor for the next 3 years. In its 4th year the event has secured a major regional player in gaming, accommodation and entertainment in a partnership that will bring a new dimension to the event.


The Mulwala Water Ski Club sees the growth in participation to over 700 registrations in 2014 and the attraction of over 90% of competitors from beyond the region as a valuable economic driver for the region. With exceptional facilities the Mulwala Water Ski Club provides the opportunity for competitors to enjoy an array of dining options and on Saturday October 17 be entertained by one of Australia’s best live musicians Daryl Braithwaite.


This event has something for everyone. Saturday’s line-up includes the 5km ‘Race the Paradise Queen’ and 10km fun run, kids duathlon, Aquathlon state championships and a mini triathlon (250m swim/8km bike/2km run) just enough to tempt anyone looking for their first triathlon. Sunday’s line-up sticks to two of triathlon’s favourite distance – sprint and standard (Olympic). 


Triathlon Victoria finds Yarrawonga an ideal location to launch the season due to the warm mid-October climate in the region which should see temperatures in the mid 20’s. “Delivering high quality events in regional Victoria is a key priority for Triathlon Victoria and the commitment and financial support of Yarrawonga Mulwala Tourism ensures that triathletes have a great opening race to kick-off the season and this region receives increased tourism visitation and economic benefit” said Grant Cosgriff Executive Director Triathlon Victoria.


The event has always received great support from the triathlon community with participant numbers increasing each year since its inception and a range of individual and club awards. The ‘Club Shield’ is currently held by the Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club who won the title narrowly (19 points) from Tri-Alliance. Not surprisingly the Carole McGregor Trophy was won by Carole McGregor! A trophy awarded to the best overall athlete at the YMMF (best results from 3 events) a title Carole also collected in 2012. We asked her what keeps her coming back? “It’s lots of fun, good to be involved in a well organised great weekend and the spirit of the festival …. It’s all about getting out there and doing what you do, and making sure it’s fun at the same time.”


So what are you doing on October 17 and 18 this year? Why not join us in Yarrawonga and join in the fun of multisport!
