Sportsfest on this weekend

The annual Sportfest is on this weekend.

Sportsfest is a multi-sport weekend of swimming, cycling, running, beach volleyball and triathlon events, catering for everyone, including children.

The history of Sportsfest goes back to 1981 with the Coral Coast Triathlon. A group of folk from the Council and associated sporting clubs gave the race a new beginning based around the recently developed Cairns Esplanade.

With community support, triathlon has now been transformed into a multi sport weekend. This year will be the 25th anniversary of the original Tri.
