The Port of Mackay’s Southern Breakwater will host the region’s top triathletes as part of the Mackay Triathlon Festival this weekend.

The breakwater will be closed temporarily from 2am to 5.30pm on Saturday 23 September and from 2am to 11am on Sunday 24 September as competitors run, swim and cycle around the Mackay Harbour precinct.

NQBP is proud to support the community event through the provision of access to the breakwater and port roads for participants.

Mackay Triathlon Club President Jenni Bailey said the use of the Southern Breakwater during the festival is one of the highlights of the event as it gives runners exclusive use for part of the run course and makes it an extremely safe cycle course for the kids.

“We appreciate NQBP’s ongoing support of community events and in particular our Mackay Triathlon Festival,” Miss Bailey said.

“The Mackay Harbour provides a beautiful backdrop for the festival and Mackay should be very proud of what we can offer,” she said.
