Berri Hotel Murray Man Triathlon
Sunday November 6 2016
Prize money TBA
Murray Man returns to magnificent Lake Bonney and the town of Barmera in the heart of the Riverland for 2016.
New for 2016: a revised bike course sees competitors continue along the existing course for an extra 2.5km, making this event a true 1.9km swim | 90km bike | 21.1km run course.
Each year Murray Man’s reputation grows, with competitors treated to a well-organized and almost ‘boutique’ event as competitor numbers have remained relatively small in comparison to other races. The Murray Man is developing into a triathlon festival, with a half Murray Man and now also encompassinges a short course triathlon on Saturday for the young or new to triathlon (200m swim/8km bike/2km run). This event is sponsored by Nippy’s, a Riverland institution.
The 2016 Murray Man date has been decided following consideration of a busy calendar in Nov-Dec. Sunday November 6 will give long course triathletes an opportunity for a hit out three weeks before Western Sydney 70.3 and four weeks before Busselton Ironman.
With plenty of accommodation options and tourist attractions, the Berri-Barmera area is a great place to plan a family get away and enjoy the very best the Riverland has to offer, all with great country hospitality.
