Cross Triathlon ‘Coming of Age’ in Australia Tre-X 2014/15 Update
Cross Triathlon has been simmering on the fringe of Australian sport for some time now and over the past seven years Australia’s national cross triathlon series, ‘Tre-X’ (pronounced treks) has been raising the profile of the sport and witnessing its rapid growth in popularity.
This coupled with the strong support of Triathlon Australia has meant that, OFF-ROAD is rapidly becoming the ONLY ROAD for many triathletes; and the 2014/15 Season of Tre-X is set to catapault cross triathlon into the Australian mainstream sporting arena.
The announcement of the 2014 Australian Cross Triathlon Championships to the held in Bendigo Victoria was the first of 3 Major Announcements for the Tre-X Series in 2014/15.
Securing such a spectacular venue in Victoria with the strong support of the local council and community is a major part of a strategic plan for the growth of the sport in Australia and the next two announcements, in relation to the event in theSnowy Mountains, NSW on 28th Feb & 1st of Marchwill form the foundation for a long term strategic plan aimed at significatnly raising the profile of Cross Triathlon in Australia.
This is a very exciting time for our sport and we look forward to sharing the journey with all our amazing competitors in the coming years.
