In honour of the late Jackie Fairweather (nee Gallagher), this race promises to be something truly special. Jackie made an amazing contribution to triathlon and sport in general, and this event brings together many wonderful aspects of the Triathlon Australia Hall of Famer’s life. Held over Australia’s most popular triathlon distances, the event includes the Standard, Sprint, Super Sprint and MINIMAN. Jackie’s love, of not only triathlon but also running, will be showcased at the event with an inclusive day for all to be a part of the celebration of an amazing woman.

For Sprint distance competitors, the Draft Legal race is a qualifying event for selection in the Australian Age Group Team at the 2019 ITU Sprint Triathlon World Championships to be held in Lausanne, Switzerland.
