November 27 2017

Bendigo Goldfields turned out a spectacular course this weekend for round four of the National TreX Cross Triathlon Series which also doubled as the Triathlon Victoria State Championships.  Ultimately it was the international power couple of cross triathlon Jacqui and Ben Allen who beat out strong competition from series leaders Jacob Storey and Anne Alford and reigning U23 world champion Penny Slater to take out the state titles.

As day dawned across beautiful Crusoe Reservoir in the heart of the Bendigo goldfields, it was clear that the tranquillity of the morning would soon be smashed as the best of Australia’s off-road athletes braced themselves to tackle a brutal 1500m swim, followed by a 30km XC MTB in Bendigo Regional Park and finish up with one of the most technically challenging 10km trail run courses in the country.

Into the water and it was Ben Allen who once again demonstrated his dominance on the swim, exiting the water with a 3:33min lead over his closest rivals Declan Jefferey and Rodney Bell, Lead female Catherine Sterling from Mornington Peninsula finished the swim in second place overall with an 8sec lead on Jacqui Allen and national series leader Anne Alford 20 sec behind.

Onto the mountain bike and a fast, dry course awaited athletes with a few rocky, pinchy climbs and descents ready to challenge riders at every turn.

For the men Allen continued his dominance on the bike finishing up a tough 30km in a time of 1:14:35 now over 9mins ahead of closest rival Jacob Storey and Declan JefferyJacqui Allen proved her strength on the bike leg regaining the lead from Sterling with Penny Slater putting in a strong ride for second and Anne Alford in third.

The trail run hosted in Crusoe is one of the most diverse and technically challenging courses on the national circuit.  80% of the run is off trail and runners are challenged with a nice little section the race organisers have named ‘Log In… Log Out’ where runners must traverse a 150m section of 1m high logs, all with the lactic acid burning in the legs from the mountain bike. This is followed by a water section before tackling the beautiful but challenging downhill rocky gully back to Race HQ.

In the previous three series races, the run leg is where series leader Jacob Storey has asserted his dominance and this race was no exception.  Storey pulled back 1:37mins on the leaders but ultimately Allen was not going to give up his lead easily and with a strong performance on the run went on to claim the title as the champion of Victoria in a time of 2:11:43, with Storey taking silver in 2:18:34, and Declan Jefferey in third in a time of 2:26:25.

Jacqui Allen and Penny Slater battled it out on the run but Allen with her typical grit and determination crossed the line to take the title in 2:27:43 with Slater in second place in 2:29:35 and Anne Alford in 3rd in 2:35:09.

Race Director, Simon Lazenby, from In2Adventure who hosted the ITU World Championships in the Snowy Mountains in November 2016 told us,

“It is so great to be back in Bendigo after the ITU World Champs.  Every course in the National TreX Series is very unique and brings its own charm that creates a very special challenge at each race for our athletes.  This round of the series adds that dirty, dusty rough and rugged course that our TreX Tri family love.” 

The TreX Series serves up a tough challenge for racers in the standard distance course, however, with Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids courses it’s also about participation.  The TreX series offers an opportunity for athletes of any age or ability to come along and enjoy the off-road experience.

In the sprint event which included a 400m swim, 10km XC MTB and 5km trail run there were also some amazing performances, especially from Queensland young gun Callum Kingston taking overall line honours in an amazing time of 50:50:04 with local star Ruben de Silva-Smith from the Bendigo tri club in 2nd and Russell Weekley also a Bendigo local in 3rd.

For the females it was Julie Clark from Berwick taking line honours with Alison Cartner from Bendigo Tri Club in 2nd and Catherine Cunningham from Knox Tri Club in 3rd.

In the Junior course Olly Sanderson also from Bendigo Tri Club took line honours in a time of 26:26:55.

And the TreX Dirt Kids was certainly the feature event of the day with our young off-road champions of tomorrow aged 7-10 years tackling a 50m swim, 3km mountain bike around Crusoe Reservoir and a 500m run.  After learning all the skills at a free tri clinic with international superstars Ben and Jacqui Allen from B&J Racing, the Dirt Kids raced hard and finished with big smiles at the finish line.

The TreX series continues on its national tour with round 5, TreX Snowy Mountains and the Australia Cross Triathlon Championships hosted at the home of the 2016 ITU World Champs at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the spectacular Snowy Mountains.

The weekend also includes the Australia Aquathlon Championships, world champs qualification rounds and the inaugural Snowies Ultra Trail Run Festival including 50k ultra, half marathon, 10k and 5k trail run events.

Events are open to all comers and there are courses and distances to suit all ages and abilities which makes it a fantastic weekend away for the entire family, but be quick, this event is close to sell out.

November 7 2017

In breaking news TreX, Australia’s National XTri Series, has announced that internationally renowned athletes Ben and Jacqui Allen will launch a free kids Triathlon Clinic at TreX Goldfields this November.

BENDIGO – In2Adventure are proud to announce that ambassadors Ben and Jacqui Allen will be hosting a free triathlon training clinic for TreX Dirt Kids aged 7-10 years at TreX Goldfields on the 25th of November.

Ben Allen (AUS) and Jacqui Allen (GBR), often referred to as the ‘First Couple of cross triathlon, are two of the most prolific athletes in the sport, travelling extensively around the world and boasting many titles to their name.  They also run B&J Racing mentoring up and coming athletes in the sport.  Now they’re back in Australia and set to share that wealth of knowledge and experience with our young Australian champions of the future at the ‘B&J Racing Kids Clinic’.

The B&J Racing kids clinic will be offered free to all entrants in the TreX Dirt Kids event at TreX Goldfields hosted in Bendigo on the 25th of November.  The Dirt Kids event is just one of the many courses hosted by In2Adventure as part of the TreX Cross Triathlon which also includes a standard, sprint, junior, teaser, aquabike and duathlon options. Dirt Kids is a fun, non-competitive event for youngsters aged 7-10 years and includes a 50m swim, 3km easy mountain bike and a 500m trail run.  Like all TreX events it does offer Dirt Kids the opportunity to get a bit dirty and muddy in this fun and exciting version of the sport.

Both Ben and Jacqui are excited to announce the B&J Racing Kids clinic and Ben told us that,

The focus is on PARTICIPATION rather than competition. The clinic is designed to expose kids to Cross Triathlon and the exciting world of multisport!  Jacqui and I want to educate kids about the multisport lifestyle, all while being involved in a fun, exciting, and safe atmosphere! It will really help the kids to ‘get their feet wet’.

We see this as an opportunity for kids to meet friends, learn fundamental skills in triathlon, all while getting down and dirty of course!  We can’t wait to meet all the enthusiastic boys and girls ready to live on the wild side of triathlon.”

Race Director, Simon Lazenby, from In2Adventure the organisation that hosts the National TreX XTri Series told us

;“We are so excited to launch this new initiative from Ben and Jacqui.  They are not only amazing athletes, but also wonderful people who give so much of their time back to the sport, event organisers and other athletes.  This is just another example of their commitment to the sport and will be such a positive experience for our young Dirt Kids who will now have the opportunity to come along and have a go at off road racing and learn some new skills from the best in the business.”

The clinic is designed to introduce young athletes aged 7-10 yrs+ to the sport of triathlon and help them improve triathlon specific skills in a safe and fun environment. The clinic is hosted by qualified coaches and is an ideal opportunity for parents racing TreX XTri to involve their entire family during the race weekend.  It will be hosted just before the TreX XTri Dirt Kids event on race day. Numbers are limited, and registration is included with every Dirt Kids entry.

November 7th, 2017 / Media Release

October 10, 2017

In breaking news TreX, Australia’s National XTri Series, have announced the launch of an all new event for TreX Goldfields and TreX Snowy Mountains with the introduction of the TreX Aquathlon.

In2Adventure have announced the launch of an all new event for the TreX series with an Aquathlon to be hosted at the Bendigo and Snowy Mountains MultiSport Festivals this season.  These events also double as world championship qualification rounds as well as the Australian National Championship in the Snowy Mountains.

The move sees the series aligning with the strategic direction of the International Triathlon Union, the governing body for triathlon world wide which this year hosted the MultiSport World Championship Festival in Canada combining the cross triathlon world championships with its multisport counterparts including duathlon, aquathlon, long distance and aquabike.

The event is hosted by In2Adventure, the team who brought the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships to Australia in 2016 and have been hosting specialist off road and adventure events throughout Australia for over ten years, however, if our readers are anything like us they question they’re asking is, ‘What is an Aquathlon?’  We put this to Race Director Simon Lazenby.

“Quite simply it’s a Run, Swim, Run.  Aquathlon is a great way to get into the sport of triathlon.  It doesn’t require a road or mountain bike, all you need are a pair of togs and a pair of running shoes, so it’s a great way for anyone to come along and try sport, especially our young champions of tomorrow.”

The aquathlon events in both Bendigo and Snowy Mountains include a Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids Courses which offer an opportunity for all ages and all abilities to be a part of the action.

The organisers also added that the addition of the TreX Aquathlon adds a new dimension to the ever popular Dirt Master Challenge that is an integral part of the Bendigo and Snowy Mountains MultiSport Weekend.

Dirt Master contenders tackle three hardcore multisport events across two days with the aim to take out the ultimate title of Dirt Master or Dirt Mistress.   This year that will include the TreX Cross Triathlon on Saturday morning, the Aquathlon on Saturday afternoon and Trail Run Festival on Sunday.

Proudly supported by the City of Greater Bendigo, the Goldfields MultiSport Festival will take place on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th November. Event Director Robyn Lazenby told us that

 “Bendigo is often seen as a contemporary regional centre, however, what most people don’t realise is that it is a real hidden treasure when it comes to action packed multisport events. Crusoe Reservoir provides the perfect backdrop for a challenging off road swim, mountain bike and trail run for the TreX cross tri, plus the on road trails for an aquathlon; and then a spectacular trail run festival course, all in the one stunning location.

The same can be said of Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the Snowy Mountains.  Not only does it offer world class mountain biking and trail running facilities it also has the capacity to host a great on road aquathlon course as well.”

Entries for the TreX Aquathlon events open today and full information and entry details can be found on the website at:

Port Stephens shines with “Miles of Smiles” as Alexander & Daniel take line honours at the Inaugural Tomaree Trail Run Festival and Kay & Flett claim Dirt Master & Dirt Mistress Titles

PORT STEPHENS | As over 400 athletes and 1000 visitors from across Australia descended on Port Stephens last weekend, day two of the ‘Off Road’ extravaganza saw Port Stephens turn on a spectacular day and a course that included “Miles of Smiles” at the Inaugural Tomaree Trail Run Festival.

2017 saw the launch of the TreX Cross Triathlon Series in Port Stephens coupled with the all new Tomaree Trail Run Festival which included a half marathon, 11.5k and 6k courses which both challenged and delighted runners from across Australia.

At the end of the day it was local, Alexander James from Salamander Bay and representing the local trail running group Tomaree Trotters who took out line honours for the males in a blistering time of 1:26:23. While Amy Daniel from Emu Plains in NSW representing Upcoaching took the win for the females in a time of 1:53:01.

Simon Lazenby, Race Director from In2Adventure, the national event team who brought the festival to Port Stephens made special mention of the remarkable times clocked by these young runners on what was a technically challenging and diverse course,

These times really reflect the talent of these runners as this was not a course for those who weren’t up for a challenge” he remarked.

The course which took runners into some of the most awe inspiring coastal terrain found anywhere in the world and included the beauty of Tomaree National Park, which at this time of year was abundant with wild flowers; the challenge of a climb across Samurai Dunes; and the stunning beauty of Port Stephens Coastal Trails rewarded runners with views and vistas that, just for a while helped to quiet the sound of legs challenged by the rocky, sandy, rough and challenging off road trails.

The run finished with a rocky climb around the Fingal Bay headland before a beach run along spectacular Fingal Bay to a raucous welcome from the crowd who had gathered on the Fingal Bay foreshore to welcome runners at the finish line.

The event also saw the launch of the Port Stephens Dirt Master & Dirt Mistress Titles where brave souls chose to tackle the TreX Standard Course on Saturday including a 1500m swim, 30km XC MTB and 10k Trail Run and then back up on Sunday to take on the Tomaree Trail Run Half Marathon.

At the conclusion of the weekend seven athletes completed the challenge to take home the title of Dirt Master or Dirt Mistress and it was Sorcha Flett from Black Forest in South Australia with a cumulative time of 5:57:14 taking out the Dirt Mistress Port Stephens title and Luke Kay from Dickson in the ACT in a time of 4:35:45 taking out the Dirt Master title.

Newly crowned Dirt Master & Dirt Mistress Title Holders include:

  • Luke Johnston | Redlynch, Qld
  • Simon Nendick | North Lakes, Qld
  • Tony Williams | Mount Victoria, NSW
  • Stuart Lowrie | Fingal Bay, NSW
  • Nathan Archer | Fern Bay, NSW

The feedback from those who took part has been overwhelming and the “Miles of Smiles” seen out on the trails around Port Stephens this weekend truly reflected that sentiment.  But the question on everyone’s lips was, will the event be back again next year?

 

If we have a say in it this will become a regular annual event.” Event Director Robyn Lazenby told us.

The community in Port Stephens have been overwhelmingly welcoming and the assistance provided by local groups such as the Fingal Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, the Tomaree Trotters and Park Run has really added to the success of the event. As well as the support of local businesses such as the Fingal Bay Holiday Park, Port Stephens 4WD, Murrays Brewery, Quad Bike King and Capture Imaging Photography have really made this event a special experience for us and our team as well as competitors who travelled from wide and far from across Australia. 

We cannot thank everyone enough and would truly welcome the opportunity to continue to grow this event into the future.”  She concluded

The national TreX series and MultiSport Festivals continues on their national tour with round 3, TreX Redlands, hosted at Queensland’s mountain biking heaven, Karingal Scout Camp at Mount Cotton on Brisbane’s south side before heading onto Bendigo in November with the launch of the Bendigo Trail Run Festival.

Port Stephens turns on a “Brutally Awesome” course for Australia’s Ultimate Triathlon as Neumann & Slater take titles

PORT STEPHENS | “Brutally Awesome” was the word on the street as Round 2 of TreX, Australia’s National Cross Triathlon Series, launched in spectacular Port Stephens this weekend.  Ultimately it was reigning U23 World Cross Triathlon Champion Penny Slater from NSW taking out the Open/Elite Category for the females and Queenslander Max Neumann back from some strong performances on road both overseas and at home, taking the title for the men.

As the sun rose over stunning Fingal Bay, it was clear that Port Stephens was set to shine for this inaugural off road event in the region.  As competitors lined up against the sparkling blue waters on Fingal Beach the scene was one of tranquillity, but it was clear that an epic challenge lay ahead and as the day would play out this ultimate triathlon challenged athletes at every turn.

Into the water and it was Max Neumann who once again demonstrated his dominance on the swim leg exiting the water with a 4:22 lead over Dan Robins NSW and race 1 winner Jacob Storey VIC.

Penny Slater, just back in Australia after an awe inspiring win at the U23 ITU World Championships in Canada, dominated the swim exited the water 4th overall in a time of 28:34

The mountain bike leg hosted in beautiful Tomaree National Park, which at this time of year was at its stunning best as abundant wildflowers setting the backdrop for a challenging mountain bike leg which included two laps of a 15km course.

Although this course was not as technically challenging as other TreX courses across the nation, it did add a new European element to round two as the mountain bike leg was physically challenging with a lap that included fire trail, rocky climbs, steep descents and some hard sand trails in the mix.  This made for a thigh burning 30km on the bike.

With an MTB split time of 1:17 Max Neumann continued to dominate the race and came back into T2 with a lead of 13:09 over Jacob Storey who had ridden his way into 2nd place and now lead Dan Robins by 2:12.

Penny Slater continued her dominance on the course with a MTB split of 1:34 as she came into T2 with a lead of 9:26 over Holly Khan from NSW, and Sorcha Flett from South Australia in 3rd.

With legs burning, hearts pumping and lungs heaving it was time to hit the trail run leg, and with some softer sand trails at the start, athletes had to dig deep before reaching the spectacular coastal trails on the Fingal Bay headland.  For all that hard work at the start of the trail run, athletes were rewarded with some of the most spectacular scenery and coastal vistas found anywhere in the world on these awe inspiring coastal walking trails.

Coming off the coastal trail and into Barry Park it was time to tackle the rocks of the headland before heading onto spectacular Final Beach for the final kilometre of the trail run leg before finishing on the Fingal Bay Foreshore.

Onto the final leg Max Neumann recorded a blazing 42:41 split for the 10km Trail Run to finish in a time of 2:25:02 ahead of Jacob Storey 2nd and Dan Robins 3rd.

Penny Slater also finished strongly, demonstrating the true spirit of a world champion, with a run split of 55:55 making her the only female to finish sub 3 hours with a time of 2:59:54 with Holly Khan 2nd and Sorcha Flett 3rd.

Race Director, Simon Lazenby, from In2Adventure who hosted the ITU World Championships in the Snowy Mountains in November 2016 told us,

“The course at Port Stephens delivered a real challenge for athletes and added another unique race to the seven-race strong national series.  The beach swim and the Euro-style mountain bike course coupled with the amazing scenery and beach location certainly both challenged and rewarded athletes and the quote from one age group athlete describing the event as ‘Brutally Awesome’ certainly summed up what off road triathlon is all about.  It’s tough, challenging and rewarding and offers athletes the opportunity to discover some of the most spectacular destinations in Australia.”

The TreX Series offers up a real challenge for our elite racers in the standard distance course, however, with a Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids course it’s also about participation.  The TreX series offers an opportunity for athletes of any age or ability to come along and enjoy the off road experience.

In the sprint course which included a 400m swim, 15km XC MTB and 6km trail run there were also some amazing performances, especially in the Junior Young Guns categories.

In the Junior course Joey Milgate from Gympie, Qld and Tia Hart from Northmead, NSW dominated the race from start to finish finishing in 41:23 and 52:13 respectively.

And the TreX Dirt Kids was certainly the feature event of the day with our young off-road champions of tomorrow aged 7-10 years tackling a 50m sea wade, 1km mountain bike along Fingal Bay foreshore and a 500m run on Fingal Beach.

The TreX series continues on its national tour with round 3, TreX Redlands, hosted at Queensland’s mountain biking heaven, Karingal Scout Camp at Mount Cotton on Brisbane’s south side before heading onto Bendigo in November.

Storey & Alford take out Round 1 of Australia’s National XTri Series

As Australia’s National Cross Triathlon Series kicked off in Queensland on the weekend it was Victorian Jacob Storey and Queenslander Anne Alford who took first blood at round 1 hosted at Murrenbong Scout Camp in Queensland’s spectacular Moreton Bay Region.

Storey dominated the event from the outset and never gave up his lead for the entirety of the challenging 6km Trail Run, 20km Mountain Bike and 3km Trail Run format.

Elite mountain biker and TreX veteran Andy ‘Hubcap’ Handyside, who in 2017 is stepping up to the Open category for the first time pulled back some time across the 20k mountain bike leg, but Storey continued to maintain his dominance with a blistering 12:02 run split for the final 3km trail run leg to take out the event in an amazing time of 1:31:30.

2016 Qld Dirt Mistress Champion Anne Alford has also chosen to take on the challenge of the Open Category in the 2017/18 season and her efforts were well rewarded being the first female across the line to take the win in a time of 1:55:53

Race organisers In2Adventure have stepped up the challenge for the Race 1 duathlon with a new trail run course and the addition of a technically challenging mountain bike section ominously named ‘Mordor’ along with the usual fun of the beginner/intermediate trails already on offer at Murrenbong Scout Camp.

The trail run course saw runners tackling all the mother nature could throw at them with off trail running, pinchy climbs, some log obstacles and a wet, muddy creek run.

This trail run course has the lot” race director, Simon Lazenby, told us, “and Robyn has delivered a new trail run course that is both challenging and exhilarating and delivers more of what our athletes love about off road triathlon.  It takes a bit of heart to tackle these courses, but it also makes it a memorable experience and an amazing achievement to cross that finish line.

Along with the open athletes there were also some amazing performances from age groupers in the Standard, Sprint, Junior and Teaser courses with many new comers taking on the challenge of their first off road triathlon.  But undoubtedly the highlight of the day was the Dirt Kids event where our young champions of tomorrow had the opportunity tackle their own duathlon course with a 500m run, 3k mountain bike and finishing up with a 250m run to the finish to the raucous cheers of the crowd.

Full results, photos and series points can be found on the website at www.trextriathlon.com.au

The TreX series continues on its national tour as it launches in an all new event location in the beautiful destination of Fingal Bay and Tomaree National Park in Port Stephens, NSW on the 16th and 17th of September.

The next round is a triathlon format but, like all TreX events this season it includes a duathlon and aqua bike option with standard distance, sprint, junior, teaser and dirt kids courses on offer.  This is coupled with the eagerly anticipated Tomaree Trail Run Festival hosted on Sunday which will present runners with one of the most challenging and awe-inspiring trail run courses in Australia.

TreX 2017/18 Season Set to Launch with All New Duathlon Format in Queensland’s Spectacular Moreton Bay Region

BRISBANE – Australia’s National Cross Triathlon Series is set to launch in just two weeks with an all new duathlon format.  Hosted at Murrenbong Scout Camp, Kurwongbah in Queensland’s spectacular Moreton Bay Region, the series goes back to its roots to the place where it all began eleven years ago.

The National 2017/18 TreX Series includes seven action packed events across the nation and according to race organisers is set to be the most dynamic and exciting TreX series to date.

Off the back of the hosting of the ITU World Championships and ten years of developing the sport within Australia with the TreX Series, the interest in cross triathlon in Australia is at an all-time high.  Athletes are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to hit the trails again in this action-packed triathlon format.

Cross or Off Road Triathlon takes the traditional format of the sport and mixes it with a huge helping of heart, guts, mud and dirt as athletes take on a unique challenge with swimming, mountain biking and trail running, where the challenge is as much with mother nature as it is against other athletes.

Race 1 of the series is a duathlon format which is simply a triathlon without the swim.  Athletes tackle a trail run, mountain bike and then a second trail run.  Race Director, Simon Lazenby told us,

The duathlon format is a great way to kick off the series in the Queensland winter and with events for all ages and skill level, it provides a great introduction to athletes to come and try the sport and discover why everyone is talking about cross triathlon.”

Based at Murrenbong Scout Camp in Kurwongbah just 40 minutes north of Brisbane, it seems the venue is the perfect location for this combination of off road event.

“We have long known that the Moreton Bay Region, north of Brisbane is a fantastic adventure destination and with the backing of Moreton Bay Regional Council the TreX duathlon will enable us to showcase the region to athletes from across the state and the nation. And with camping and accommodation on site it makes if really easy to come along and enjoy some fantastic mountain biking, trail running, camping and awesome times with your mates or family.” 

Race 1 of the series is proudly supported by Moreton Bay Regional Council.

Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Spokesperson for Parks, Recreation and Sport, and Division 11 Councillor, Darren Grimwade, said council was thrilled In2Adventure had trekked to Moreton Bay to hold its Off Road Triathlon series.

“Kurwongbah may be sparsely populated but its beauty and terrain stretches far and wide, which makes it an ideal location to hold this action-packed event,” Cr Grimwade said.

“The Moreton Bay Region prides itself on a strong sporting culture and active, outdoor lifestyle, and I have no doubt our community will join me in welcoming In2Adventure to Kurwongbah this month.

“With a quality line up of around 200 competitors and officials and more than 300 spectators expected to attend the event, which is certainly shaping up to be a dynamic sporting event, of enduring athletics, not to be missed.

“While in Kurwongbah, I encourage competitors, spectators and visitors alike to head over to nearby Lake Samsonvale, an attractive spot for locals and visitors alike to relax and unwind while Lake Kurwongbah, a hidden treasure, is home to a wide variety of birds, fish and native animals making it a real luxury for those who enjoy the outdoors, water and nature.”  

Murrenbong is where the TreX Series launched eleven years ago and athletes can expect some old favourites trails including Genesis, Wolf Creek and Moria, as well as the excitement of the Madness and Mordor Trails which offer some extra challenges for riders along the way.  The trail run course is a favourite, and yes, athletes can expect to get wet and muddy with the ever popular creek run included for the duathlon.

The event includes Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids Courses for solos and teams of two or three and entries close on Wednesday 16th August or when sold out.

In2Adventure names Allen and Allen ambassadors for TreX 2017/18

The ‘First Couple’ of cross triathlon Ben and Jacqui Allen will serve as official TreX race ambassadors for 2017/18…

BRISBANE – In2Adventure are proud to announce their ongoing partnership with Ben and Jacqui Allen as official TreX race ambassadors as Australia’s National cross triathlon series, heads into an action packed 11th year after the recent hosting of the ITU World Championships in November.

“With one of the most exciting series to date including new locations and event formats in 2017/18, to once again have the opportunity to work with two of the sports best athletes to help us continue to grow the sport of cross triathlon in Australia after the ITU world champs last year is a true privilege,” Race Director Simon Lazenby told us.

Along with their international commitments Ben and Jacqui will be racing on home soil at least four of the national seven race series.

Events will include Bendigo Victoria; the Australian Championships in the spectacular Snowy Mountains NSW including taking on the three day Snowies MTB Stage Race in February; plus visits to Queensland for the Qld State Championship in March 2018 and the TreX Series Championship on the Sunshine Coast in April 2018.

That means we’ll be seeing a lot more of two of the sports most respected athletes this season right here in Australia.

“In2Adventure have put together an awesome line up of races in beautiful places. We are thrilled to continue our TreX Ambassador role and inspire people to share in the amazing journey that Cross Triathlon offers to everyone.” said Ben.

“We are delighted to be on board with In2adventure for the up and coming season, It’s an honour to be involved with Robyn and Simon, people who are as passionate as we are about cross triathlon. I’m excited to race in the new locations and continue to see the sport grow in Australia.” Jacqui told us.

It was also interesting to find out exactly why this partnership between Ben and Jacqui and In2Adventure is so important to the sport of cross triathlon and the athletes in Australia.

 “We are so proud and recognise what a privilege it is have such amazing athletes as Ben and Jacqui working with us to really develop the sport of cross triathlon within Australia and beyond,” said In2Adventure event director Robyn Lazenby.

“Ben and Jacqui are at the pinnacle of the sport internationally and are consistently achieving solid podium results, but this isn’t why the relationship is so special to us.  It’s because Ben and Jacqui embrace and represent all the things that we truly value at In2Adventure.”

According to In2Adventure event director Robyn Lazenby, the pair possesses three main qualities that make them the ideal choice to represent TreX into the new season.

“Firstly, they genuinely love the sport of cross triathlon and whenever we talk with them it just reminds us why we have worked so hard for so many years to really establish the sport within Australia,” she said. “It’s because it’s fun and challenging and exciting and Ben and Jacqui truly embrace this.

“Secondly, it’s the athletes they are ‘on’ and ‘off’ the course,” Robyn continued. “They race hard but they do it with respect for the sport and everyone else around them and truly value the experience of racing, not just the winning.

“Thirdly, they ‘share the love’, they give back to the sport and are truly passionate and giving of their time to assist other athletes, especially our up and coming champions of tomorrow.

“As we lead into the 2017/18 season in Australia in 2016 we couldn’t ask for two better athletes to represent In2Adventure, the TreX Series,” she concluded.

TreX is Australia’s own national cross triathlon series and the 2017/18 season includes seven races across the nation.

TreX Set for More Off Road Action in Spectacular Port Stephens

PORT STEPHENS — Australia’s National Cross Triathlon Series has an all new action packed destination in 2017 with a new event set to launch in spectacular Port Stephens.

Based on the NSW Mid north coast and just 2.5hrs drive from Sydney, Port Stephens offers a winning combination of sandy beaches, national parklands and rugged coastlines.  The location offers the perfect backdrop for the action packed TreX Series which takes the traditional form of triathlon and then heads ‘Off Road’ with a thrilling mix of swimming, mountain biking and trail running.

The event is hosted by In2Adventure, the team who brought the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships to Australia in 2016 and have been hosting specialist off road and adventure events throughout Australia for over ten years.

Race Director Simon Lazenby sees this new event location in Port Stephens as “a significant and exciting addition to the already six race strong TreX Series in Australia” as well as “an amazing way to continue the development of the sport after the world champs in 2016.”

The event will take place across two days on the 16th and 17th of September and will hold some special experiences for athletes.

Event Director Robyn Lazenby told us, “This is a new and exciting destination for the TreX series which is inspired by the opportunity to showcase Australia’s natural beauty and iconic regions to participants from across Australia and overseas. Port Stephens is one of Australia’s natural hidden treasures with its spectacular coastline, beaches, and the beauty of Tomaree National Park.  The location represents a perfect fit for a TreX event which will act as a catalyst to showcase this amazing adventure destination.”

It seems the course is also going to offer something new and tempting for athletes as well.

“This is the first sea swim for the TreX Series and we’re so lucky to have the opportunity to host the swim in Fingal Bay which is one of the most amazing beach locations in Australia. 

The mountain bike leg will add a new European style course to the series with less technical riding, but some amazing trails, views and challenges presented within beautiful Tomaree National Park.  It will be a great course for beginners and experienced mountain bikers alike.

The most memorable part of this course will definitely be the trail run.  It includes a challenging climb along Fingal Bay’s coastal path with views across the bay and coastline and finishes up with a rocky coastal section followed by an amazing beach run along the expanse of Fingal Bay.  You might even see one of the many migrating Humpback or Southern Right Whales, or a friendly school of dolphins along the way, like we did earlier this year.” Robyn concluded. 

TreX includes events for all ages and skill levels with Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids courses.  The TreX event will also be coupled with a Dirt Fest Weekend which will include a number of other off road adventure events for the entire family which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Entries are open now and participants can currently enter at the discounted ‘Early Bird’ rate for this event.  To find out more and be a part of the off road action go to www.trextriathlon.com.au
