Renowned as one of the toughest triathlons in the country, the Dirt & Dust triathlon has seen the likes of Olympians Brad Beven, Loretta Harrop, Courtney Atkinson and Emma Jackson compete for the crown.

DAIKIN & MARWILL JULIA CREEK JUNIOR TRIATHLON

Starting in 1994, it all began with a couple of locals spinning yarns over the bar at the Town and Country Club, coming up with ways to put Julia Creek on the map. Low and behold, in one of Queensland’s hottest and harshest climates the idea was born to run a triathlon!

Not only do we have a Senior Triathlon we also have the Junior Triathlon which also proves to be every bit of a success, in 2015 with just over 150 junior triathletes registering for the event –using every bike rack that was set up! The increase in participant numbers has, prompted the committee to decide to increase the capacity of triathletes and cap it at 200 competitors in future years.

The inclusion of Timing Wizards for the juniors has also ensured the professionalism and competitiveness of the event. Triathlon Queensland representatives were also on haNd to view and help at the triathlon.

The biggest thank you this year goes out to the local community businesses who have yet again shown their commitment, passion and support for Dirt n Dust by supporting our pint-sized triathlete superstars. A bevvy of local businesses sponsored the event during what has been our toughest year yet with sponsorship and drought implications.
