The third Greg Crick Jeep Bridport Gold is due to kick off on Australia Day, January 26th 2013 and this year we have modified the course to be a multisport dream for all comers.
For those new to multisport or anyone who likes a short course, we have the Sprint event, which is a 750m open water swim, a 3.5km paddle and ends with a 3.5km track/beach run.
For an even greater challenge, you can do the sprint course twice and this Endurance event is expected to try even hardened multisport athletes.
With a great new sponsor Greg Crick Motors & Jeep Australia, a coffee van on the beach and hopefully fantastic Bridport weather, why not come to the jewel in the crown of the North East beaches.
You can tackle the sprint or endurance races as individuals or in teams of any makeup.
With great prizes up for grabs and the event open to all people 15 years or older, this is a must do for families, friends or sportspeople of any persuasion.
Remember, this is supposed to be fun, so grab your gear and start training!
