By admin | February 14, 2017
One of the top sporting events on the Gold Coast in 2017, the Jewel ITU World Triathlon is now accepting registration. Welcoming elite triathletes, novices, weekend warriors, and kids alike, the weekend series encourages getting outdoors and “giving it a go”. While you are enjoying trying something new or watching the elites do battle, check out some of the other great Gold Coast hotspots by staying at one of the three ULTIQA Resorts located in Broadbeach.
When: 8-9 April 2017
Where: Mitchell Park, Broadwater Parklands in Southport
What: Featuring Race 2 in the World Triathlon Series, the Jewel ITU World Triathlon event will be run on the same course as the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the new venue of Mitchell Park. The Jewel Gold Coast Triathlon features a 750m swim, 20km cycle, and 5km run. Enticer events and the Superkidz Triathlon will also be held on the 9th. Watch the elites on the Saturday and check out the Gold Coast Sport and Lifestyle Expo at Mitchell Park from 9am on the 8th. Then, take your inspiration from the pros and get inspired to compete or cheer on your mates on the Sunday.
Where to Stay: ULTIQA Resorts offers three stylish resorts located in and around the heart of Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. ULTIQA Air on Broadbeach, ULTIQA Freshwater Point Resort, and ULTIQA Beach Haven, all offer close proximity to Broadwater Parklands as well as the perfect location to restaurants, cafes, and shopping for the down time between events. Cook your meals in the self-contained apartments or head out to check out the great cuisine the Gold Coast has to offer. For triathletes looking for a quieter place to stay, be sure to check out ULTIQA Freshwater Point Resort, located just off the beaten track to ensure you get the most restful stay. Athletes and weekend warriors looking to be closer to the heart of the action should head to ULTIQA Beach Haven, located directly across from Kurrawa Park and beach. Finally, those looking for a little extra element of luxury should make their way to ULTIQA Air on Broadbeach for million dollar views.
Getting There: All three ULTIQA resorts in Broadbeach are located within walking distance to tram stops, as is the Broadwater Parklands, making it all too easy on race day. The tram comes every 5-10 minutes and the ride takes about 20 minutes in total, so be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get to the starting line. Alternatively, hire a car for a short 10-minute drive to ensure that all your equipment arrives on time and safely. For spectators, Uber, Taxis, and other public transportation options make it easy to get from the ULTIQA Resorts to your final destination and back again.
