URBAN 2.80.20 Long Course Triathlon Geelong 2012

Australia has gone from having a small handful of long course triathlon in recent times to now having more than enough to fill the seasons calendar following the announcement today by USM Events of the URBAN 2.80.20 triathlon to be held in Geelong in February 2012. The organisers also announced a prize pool of $12,000 which will attract a solid field of local pros. One thing surely to annoy Victorian triathletes is that this new event is on the same weekend as Falls Creek 2/80/20 long course triathlon.
