Located at the home of the 2009 World Championships Final, Gold Coast Triathlon – Luke Harrop Memorial is one of the best Sprint course races going around. This event, which also doubles as the Series Final race of the 2010/11 Gatorade Queensland Triathlon Series, is definitely a must do on the USM EVENTS Calendar.
Not only is the location ideal to inspire you through the beautiful course, the atmosphere will be pumped up as the competiton heats up. For competitors who have participated in three, four, five or even six races of the series, in the majority of categories, the top three Series place getters will be determined by the outcome of the final race on the 1st May. Furthermore, to celebrate another fantastic season, there will be free entertainment, the triathlon based expo open on Saturday and Sunday and big names in triathlon, racing in Luke Harrop's honour.
In 2002, one of Australia’s most promising triathletes, Luke Harrop was tragically killed whilst on a training ride on the Gold Coast. A keen and dedicated sportsman, Luke was extremely popular within the Gold Coast community, and to honour Luke the Gold Coast Triathlon now carries his name. Luke's sister and Olympic Triathlon medalist, Lorreta Harrop, will be on show racing as part of a team at this year's Gold Coast Triathlon - Luke Harrop Memorial.
