As a massive supporter of cycling and multisport events in the Hunter Region, Quarry Mining has become the naming rights sponsor of the event for 2018. And they will also 'walk the talk', with around 15 of their staff lining up to participante in the event. This is all part of the great team work and health and fitness focus the company has for staff and clients.

Celebrating 20 years, and with a new three race format, Event Director Paul Humphreys of Maitland Based H Events, is excited to establish the event back to Morpeth. “It is where sports events all began for us in 1994 and as locals we really love the town and community of Morpeth”, said Humphreys. With easy access to the river, a flat quite cycle leg around Morpeth/Duckenfield and a fast run leg around Brush Farm Rd, the event is expected to be popular a popular warm up race for the Sydney Ironman 70.3 in Penrith a few weeks later.
Being only 2 hours north of Sydney, the event has traditionally attracted a large contingent from Sydney and Central Coast Triathlon Clubs. Local triathletes from the Maitland, Newcastle, Tomaree and Singleton Clubs are also expected to flock to the event. For many it was their first Triathlon event may years ago.
The event compound will be staged from Queens Wharf Park off Queens Wharf Rd. Located right next to the river there will be a festival atmosphere promoting health and fitness all weekend. Morpeth cafes and businesses are expected to do well pre and post event. With the event finishing around 12pm on Sunday, there is expected to be plenty of hungry athletes filling cafes.
