T3X CanberraTriple Edge Events has announced a first for the Australian triathlon circuit, the T3X Endurance Series, an exciting 154 kilometre endurance triathlon to be held in Canberra, 12th – 13th December 2015.

The T3X Endurance triathlon aims to disrupt the extreme triathlon landscape in Australia, providing athletes with the only International Triathlon Union regulation distance race in Australia, with the proposed course consisting of a 4 kilometre swim, 120 kilometre bike and 30 kilometre run.

Champion professional triathlete Michelle Wu has been announced as official ambassador for the T3X Endurance Series.

Michelle is a world class triathlete who recently won Huskinsson Long Course Triathlon and has a string of professional achievements to her name.

Ms Wu said that she is very excited to be launching the first event of the T3X Endurance Series in her hometown of Canberra.

“This event will provide competitors with a new edge to their competitive racing; the T3X Endurance Series is the perfect event for those looking to explore their limits,” she said.

“The courses for the race look fantastic and I’m really looking forward to the local crowds getting out on course to watch. Wearing the #1 race bib will mean there is plenty of pressure on me.”

The T3X Endurance Series will include six event categories –T3X Endurance Tri over 154km, Canberra Triathlon over 77km, Canberra Summer Marathon, 5km & 10km Open Water Swim and a Cycling Road Race.

Brad Allen, Managing Director of Triple Edge, said the event would bring direct economic benefit to Canberra from inbound tourism for the event, estimated at a minimum of $13-14 million.

The proposed courses will involve some of Canberra’s most famous landmarks including Lake Burley Griffin and surrounds and supporters and competitors alike will be able to take in many of the iconic sights of Canberra during all races in the series. On the proposed hill climb behind Black Mountain, spectators will have an excellent vantage point to support competitors.
