Port Hedland has a great sporting tradition. Football, cricket, tennis and nearly every summer sport invented has been played in the Town.
Now triathlon is reaching the headlines of the North West Telegraph sporting pages.
Triathlon is three events rolled into one. A swim to wake you up, a bike ride to enjoy to location, and a run to check your fitness to complete the event.
There are many ways to enter the sport of triathlon. Start by entering an enticer event. The distance varies, but most start with a 300 metre swim (6 laps of a 50 metre pool), 10 km bike ride, and 3 km run.
After a bit more training, the next distance to aim for is the Olympic distance which is 1,500 metre swim, 40km bike ride and a 10 km run. Noosa is a great location to do this event, usually in November each year. http://ap.ironman.com/triathlon/events/asiapac/multisports/noosa.aspx#axzz2w0IV2XKV
Triathlon lots of fun and can be addictive after a while. There is lots of great gear to buy to look the part and feel great participating. Enjoy.
