Straddie Salute Triathlon

Next event May 14 – 16, 2021

The original offroad event! Take on the best that North Stradbroke Island has to offer in a 750m /18km (MTB) / 8.5 km course that combines surf, sand, road and dirt in nature’s ultimate playground.

The Swim

The 750m ocean swim starts at the Eastern end of Home Beach and finishes at the entry to the Point Lookout Domain. After a short (approx. 200m) beach trail and grass run you will reach transition. The swim leg is the same for Straddie Pure and Straddie Salute competitors.

The Cycle

The Straddie Salute cycle leg consists of both sealed road (70%) and 4WD trail (30%) and starts and finishes at the Event Base (Point Lookout Domain). The offroad section is not technical but includes some mud and sand that will challenge your skills and legs! Cyclists initially follow the same course as the Pure competitors but at the bottom of Beehive Rd turn right to get down and dirty on Clayton’s Track on the way back to transition.

The Run

The Straddie run course features a mix of coastal trails, beach, stairs, boardwalk and bitumen. After a short road section from transition, runners hit Main Beach and head north (left) to the Point Lookout Surf Club where the course links with a stunning scenic trail. In 2016 the tide will be relatively low providing firmer sand conditions on the two beach sections than in 2015 (i.e good news!)  The run course is the same for the Straddie Pure and the Straddie Salute.
