The event will offer a Friday evening Sunset 7km event, Aquathlon (Swim, Run only) on Saturday morning and Sprint, Standard and Oceania Paratriathlon event on the Sunday. The event will cater for novice or elite competitors and also offer relay team options. With the co-operation of the community we will be able to offer a beautiful flat fast course with a picturesque backdrop across to Newcastle, just a 5 min Ferry Ride away.

RIDE 4 RESCUE - Sat 19 Feb, 26 Mar, 14 May
Our friends at Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service are staging Ride 4 Rescue MTB, which is a new mountain bike series staged across three unique sites in the Hunter Valley, Dungog and Awaba. Supporting the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, the one day rides have something for everyone, open to both the experienced mountain biker and novice.
The courses are a combination of single track and fire-trail riding including some rocky terrain with ‘easy’ and ‘hard’ detours so you can manage your ride experience.
Choose your adventure by selecting the course length to suit your ability. Short, mid and long rides are available to all riders. The first ride held in the Hunter Valley on 19 February 2022 offers riders three courses: 23km (or 15km), 46km and 69km. E-bikes welcome!
It’s time to get your blood pumping, so rustle up your friends and family to come soak up the atmosphere.


River Realty Maitland River Run - Sun 5 June
 After last year’s successful Maitland River Run presented by River Realty, being postponed until later in the year, the event was staged for the first time at the new Maitland Regional Athletics Centre. The event was a huge success and we will continue staging the event there in 2022. This is a seriously good sports facility and we are grateful to be able to use it as the event venue. The event will offer our 1/2 marathon, 12km, 8km and 4km distances as well as the Maitland Mile (1609m) which will continue to be a track Mile, with $3000 in prize money on offer. Local mid distance runners will be lining up for the feature race on the new ‘world class’ track. There are finisher medals for everyone and a great atmosphere on the finish line.

The new venue offers wonderful facilities attached to the cricket pavilion, with Wandin Estate set to offer a range of food and beverage options for the participants and spectators on event day.

 The 29th staging of this iconic Newcastle event will be back at a new time of  Sun 20 Nov 2022. The change is due to the unavailability of our usual venue area on the Foreshore in February. We are also making some fantastic changes to the event including the return of the combined relay team age categories (120+, 150+, 180+) and putting a huge emphasis on business teams and family participation. Close to Christmas, this will be a great way to celebrate with your team in a healthy and positive environment. Stay tuned for updates of the format and timing over the coming months.
