A CAPACITY field will compete in the women’s only triathlon at Allans Flat on Sunday.
Since starting out with 35 competitors in 2009, numbers have ballooned to 250.
More than $10,000 has been donated to Border women’s organisations in that time.
OrganisersNadia Mellor and Jo Homer said the growth of the event had been incredible.
“The event started with an idea to raise the profile of triathlon as a sport with women, and to also raise funds for local women’s services,” Mellor said.
“This huge increase means the Look Good Feel Better Program will get a substantial donation for women going through cancer treatments.
“The race will have many first timers who have been encouraged by previous participants to come and have a go in a very supportive environment.”
While many of the women will have their sights set on personal best times, others will simply be keen to finish.
The action kicks off at 8.30am.
