REAL MATES TALK – MENS ONLY CHARITY TRIATHLON

We have put together a Triathlon Specifically for our Adult & Junior Men, whatever your skill or ability with $5.00 from every entry going to Real Mates Talk.
With an anything goes Enticer distance for the beginners consisting of a 300m swim, 8km Cycle and 2.5km Run, and for the more adventurous or seasoned athletes there will also be a Sprint Distance with a 600m swim, 16km cycle and a 5km run. We think our faster boys will really love to give a pool race a read hot crack!
We are looking for all those men out there that just want to give triathlon a go, but perhaps ocean swimming isn’t for you!
Just like the Womens only events, in the pool, swim aids will be permitted in the enticer for those not so strong in the water.
If you would like more information on how and/or where to train, just send us a message and we will put you in touch with the numerous training groups in and around Mackay including Triathlon specific coaches, Cycle group rides, run groups and yep, there are even several swim groups you can join.
Around three-quarters of the people who die by suicide in the Whitsunday, Isaac and Mackay region are men. These men are aged from teenagers to the elderly – they are our brothers, sons, husbands, workmates, friends and neighbours.
The Real Mates Talk men’s campaign intends to prevent suicide attempts and deaths of men in our community and support them to connect with others and live well. Across the region, many men have put their hand up to be an Ambassador for this campaign.
With Real Mates Talk, these men aim to:
Encourage men in their community to ask “What’s up mate?”
Encourage men (and women) to ask for help
Support them to have places to go to connect with others.

The event is finished.
