NSW Government Funding Announcement
The Hon. Sandra Nori MP, Minister for Tourism and Sport and Recreation was in Newcastle to announce NSW Government funding to assist in the staging of the event, supporting its production, broadcast and promotion.  Ms Nori said hosting this event would bring significant benefits to Newcastle and the Hunter region. “Newcastle will shine on the World Stage. The duathlon course will be centred on Newcastle’s beaches and harbour. People across the world will see Newcastle au naturale - only a duathlon or triathlon can provide the best tourism potential because the event course showcases the city, its streets and foreshores”.
