Take to the Lake with the 2014 Canberra Government and Business Triathlon

Released 23/09/2014

Minister for Sport and Recreation, Shane Rattenbury, has today launched the 2014 Canberra Government and Business Triathlon, to be held on Saturday 29 November, starting from the Acton Ferry Terminal.

"It is great to see the Canberra Government and Business Triathlon back on the race calendar for 2014," Mr Rattenbury said.

"With two race formats on the day, the event caters for novices through to experienced triathletes and is sure to be an exciting event.

"The format for 2014 offers a choice of two relay courses - the Sprint, which includes a 500 metre swim, 20km ride, and 5km run; and the Enticer – a 200 metre swim, 10 km ride and 2km run.

"Of course, the race isn't just about fun and fitness, it's about networking and building relationships between the public and private sector. I remember when networking took place on the golf course; we've stepped it up a notch and are taking it to the track.

"As a keen triathlete, I am certainly planning to take on the challenge and will be encouraging my colleagues in the Legislative Assembly to participate, whether it be in a team or individually.

"Events such as this are important as they not only encourage relationship building, but also promote healthy competition, fitness and good health," concluded Mr Rattenbury.
