The Woopi Tri Festival was held on 8 and 9 October. It involved a range of events for both adults and kids, including a 'tough kids beach challenge', two- and five-kilometre fun runs, a novice triathlon and a full triathlon. It is a community event run by volunteers, with all proceeds going to local charity. The event has been running for over 25 years and attracts international professional triathletes, beginners and everyone in between.

I thank the race director, Michael McFarlane; the treasurer, Sarvi Thompson; and committee members Lee and Rebecca Varney, Karen Dance, Nick Booth, Jenny Booth, Leanne Lloyd and Bridget Duffy-Redman.
