New triathlon for Shepparton

Greater Shepparton mayor Jenny Houlihan speaks at the launch of the Challenge Shepparton triathlon.

Shepparton will host a new long course triathlon event this year as part of the Challenge Family global series.

The announcement comes after the Shepparton Triathlon Club was unable to stage a race this year. A new partnership has stepped in and secured a Challenge Family event so all triathletes, local and regional clubs and the wider community don’t miss out on this first-rate event on the national tri calendar.

A new partnership between McPherson Media Group, Challenge Family, SuperSprint and Greater Shepparton City Council will see a 1.9km swim, 90km ride and 21.1km run triathlon being held on November 16.

The Challenge Shepparton race will build on Shepparton's sporting tradition, but will move the course to Victoria Park Lake.
