Straddie Salute Triathlon

Saturday May 15, 2021

The original offroad event! Take on the best that North Stradbroke Island has to offer in a 750m /15km (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 2021 Straddie Salute cycle leg has been updated to an out & back course which consists of a short sealed road section followed by 10km of 4WD trail along Claytons track. The offroad section is not technical but includes some mud and sand that will challenge your skills and legs!

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 2021 the tide will be receding which will provide firmer sand conditions on the beach sections as the day goes on.  The run course is the same for the Straddie Pure and the Straddie Salute.
