Why would I Tri at YMMF

YMMF attracts participants from all backgrounds - from first timers to regular competitors; from metropolitan Melbourne to rural Queensland; from all age groups (currently from 7-62 years old); and all types of abilities. Everyone brings with them their own unique story of how and why they got into Multisport! We asked fourth-time returning participant, John, of Elite Triathlon Performance Australia about his Multisport story.

I started through BRW Tri series with my work colleagues as a means to raise funds for Canteen back in 2005. We then went on to charity bike rides and raised nearly $800,000 over 3 rides in Australia and New Zealand - my home country. It was hugely rewarding as an opportunity to support various charities”. Since then, Triathlon and Multisport have become part of John’s lifestyle, saying his motivation now comes from “a health and wellbeing perspective.”

For John, it is the supportive nature of Triathlon that makes it unique. “The camaraderie within a tri club is quite special as everyone really supports each other and is keen for everyone to achieve their goals.” This is the atmosphere and environment that YMMF prides itself on. By including events that cater to a range of abilities, every participant has the chance to put themselves out there and is supported while having a go.

When asked what it is about YMMF that keeps him coming back, John replied “I started with the inaugural event 3 years ago and it just has a really great feel about it. It has a great climate coming out of winter and it’s not overly commercialised and the locals really get behind it. The Olympic distance is a great way to start the summer season whether you’re doing a sprint series or building up to longer events. Tri Vic do a fantastic job in the organisation of it also!”

So, why wait? Whether your goal is simply to make it to the finish line, or you’re aiming for a PB, YMMF has an event and challenge for you. So why not start (or add to) your triathlon or Multisport Story at this year’s YMMF.
