10th Anniversary of a Straddie icon

In 2008, 110 nervous competitors assembled on a start-line at Point Lookout not knowing what lay ahead in an event that promised an “adventure in nature’s playground” . Dubbed the Straddie Salute as a nod to the migrating humpbacks that grace the waters of North Stradbroke Island, the race was born as an offroad tri, and not one to be taken lightly.

30km of surf, sand, gravel and dirt later and the inaugural champions were crowned with Brisbane’s Dave Brown and Jacqui Kelly taking line honours.

Fast forward 10 years and the Straddie Salute has evolved into a multisport festival that caters for more than just those with the pioneering spirit.

With the Straddie Pure road tri introduced in 2012, an ocean swim and a fun run thrown into the mix the Straddie Salute has become a weekend away for mates, couples, groups and families. 2017 sees further expansion with the introduction of  StraddieKidz, a duathlon for 7 to 12 year olds.  2017 will also feature a “Champions of Champions” field with past champions being invited back to battle it out in the event’s historic 10th birthday celebrations.

North Stradbroke Island is set to rock again in 2017 when the Straddie Salute takes place on Saturday May 20. Choose your adventure below and be part of the celebrations..
