Deputy Mayor Annette Rockliff

This Saturday Devonport will host the 33rd Devonport Triathlon, an event which has a global reputation as being world class and one of the country’s best triathlon experiences. The Devonport Triathlon is one of the oldest in Australia, with the first event being held in 1985.

This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better, with the inclusion of the ITU Paratriathlon World Cup. The race is staged on the riverfront and at the Bluff so there will be plenty of vantage points to see the athletes in action.

 The Elite Women start at 7.30am, followed by the Elite Men at 9.00am. The Paratriathlon starts at 1pm.

 This is a free event for spectators, so head along and watch some of the country’s most in-form athletes in action. There will be great food and coffee on-site and a jumping castle for the kids. Parking will be available in William Street and Eugene Street.
