The annual Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club’s women’s only triathlon will celebrate its 10th anniversary next Sunday, November 18.
Allan’s Flat Waterhole will host the popular event from 8.30am.
The triathlon consists of a 300-metre swim, 13-kilometre cycle and three-kilometre run.
All proceeds from this year’s triathlon will be donated to Tots2Teens - a charity providing much needed items to young mothers and children in need, including women escaping from domestic violence.
During the 10 years, Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club has donated more than $20,000 to women’s services in the Border community.
“The reason this event started was to get women doing exercise in a supported environment,” club president Nadia Mellor said.
“The numbers have grown each year and the original purpose is shown to be working, with the maximum numbers being achieved for the event last year and nearly filled for 2018.
“It has grown from 25 entries the first year to 200 entries last year and the same will happen again.”
Entries are to be submitted via the Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club website or Albury Wodonga Triathlon Club women’s only triathlon Facebook page.
