EVENT UPDATE – Thursday 10 March
I am writing with the sad news that we have conceded that it is best to postpone the Kingy Tri due to the ongoing impact of the flood disaster in the Northern Rivers. The Tweed Shire Council and our stakeholders have been hugely supportive, but their priorities are elsewhere and we cannot be assured the cycle course can be repaired in time. While we were hopeful the creek could clear up, the ongoing rain around the area has also meant the polluted water in Cudgen Creek remains a longer term risk.
After witnessing the local communities hardship’s especially on the cycle course in Chinderah, with all due respect it is not appropriate to shut their streets during this time. I know some of you are very aware of the local stresses, but for those who have not witnessed it, it is very distressing at the moment.
Like many in Chinderah, NX was also impacted by the floods. We have also lost much of our equipment from our New South Wales operation hub and after concluding much of the cleanup early this week we are concerned the equipment needing to be replaced may not be procured in time for 27 March.
I believe we can add value and we can create economic benefits when we return in May.
This will now be the third event we have cancelled in 10 days, and we appreciate our athletes and friends ongoing assistance.
Your entry has been transferred to the start list of the Kingscliff Triathlon which will be held on the weekend of 28 and 29 May.
Again sincere apologies for this upset and I hope you and your family are safe and well.
Mike Crawley, Race Director
