Get running to the Gold Coast for the Ironman Triathlon
Everybody knows that Ironman events are some of the most challenging on offer, and athletes from around the world train with the utmost dedication to get themselves ready to push their limits when the big event comes.
In April on the Gold Coast there's one event Australian athletes can really get behind, and that's the Gold Coast Triathlon - Luke Harrop Memorial. This event is dedicated to the much-respected Luke Harrop, a triathlete who died tragically in 2002.
Runners from all over Australia come to run in this event that began in Currumbin in 1989, which is now the Gold Coast's signature triathlon event.
This year's event is scheduled for April 13, meaning there's still plenty of time to get yourself organised to head along to this great event! It's held at the Broadwater Parklands in Southport, which is close to plenty of great attractions as well as holiday accommodation.
