2nd Annual Orange Junior Tri Weekend

Update 31 Oct: The Saturday / Sunday coaching and race package is now sold out! Spots open for Sunday Enforcer, Junior and Midget races. Register on the morning 40 mins before your race start time. The earlier you register on the morning, easier accessible racking spot you’ll have.

As a guide, ages for Enforcer is 12+, and for the Junior race is for 7-12 years. A tip for parents: consider how well your child can swim to work out which distance race out of Enticer, Midget and Junior is best for them.

If you are a parent who can help out with marshalling on Sat or Sun (eg mount / dismount line, pedestrian access, transition entry / exit, stand at a corner on bike or run circuit), please go to our volunteer page to sign up (Access is via OCTC homepage > Events > Volunteer). We would love your help for us to have an even safer event for all the children. You do not need to be experienced to stand at the run turnaround for example, so we welcome triathlon newbies who can help us.


A super weekend of skills and racing for kids with any budding triathletes in NSW and ACT welcome to attend. Last year’s event sold out.

The coaching is led by one of the foremost junior coaches in Australia, Mel Ashton-Garard and hosted by Orange Triathlon Club and Triathlon NSW. The weekend brings experienced triathlon coaches to Gosling Creek to develop your triathlon skills in a safe, fun and challenging way.

Saturday is for those aged between 12 and 23 (those under 12 are encouraged to participate on Sun 05 Nov). The day starts with skills and finishes with racing.

Register beforehand through Triathlon NSW at https://regonline.activeglobal.com/orangejuniorweekend
