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.

SOUTH 32 JULIA CREEK 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!

Whilst many would have scoffed at the idea, the challenge was taken up by many competitors in what was (at that stage) the newest tough sport. A junior triathlon was run in conjunction with the seniors, with figures such as Brad Beven inspiring the youngsters on. In 1997 the triathlon became part of the Saucony Adventure Series for professional triathletes.

The triathlon continues to grow both in numbers and esteem. It’s not easy – but then nothing is in this part of Australia, that’s the challenge! 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.

There is however something for everyone else that doesn’t run, ride or swim. Over the years we have seen magicians, country music talent quests, amateur boxing, dance groups, cultural performers, fireworks displays, tobacco rolling contests, local ironman/woman contests, sanctioned Bullrides and the list goes on.

Seniors: 800m swim, 25km ride and 5km run
