Straddie Salute Triathlon
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 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 2023 Straddie Salute cycle leg is 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 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 along the Point Lookout coastline, across Cylinder Beach back to the Oval. The run course is the same for the Straddie Pure and the Straddie Salute.
