Community Organising Committees & Benefits
The Kingscliff Triathlon whilst delivered through the event company QSMSports remains controlled through two committees: the Strategic Partnering Board and the Local Management Committee.
The Kingy Tri is coordinated through the event stakeholders of the Strategic Partnering Board consisting of representatives from The Tweed Coast Holiday Parks, Tweed Shire Council, Destination Tweed, the Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce, the Kingscliff Ratepayer Association and the Chinderah Progress Association.
The event has become a major community event and as a marquee sports tourism driver and aims at engaging participants, spectators and the local community in a high touch experience through increased professional service whilst preserving the values that made it successful and developing awareness of Triathlon as a sport.

- Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club
- Murwillumbah Swimming Club
- Tweed Valley Triathlon Club
- Twin Towns Triathlon Club
- Tweed South Rotary Club
- Kingscliff Rotary Club

We understand that this event disrupts the usual flow of traffic and appreciate the local community’s cooperation and patience throughout the duration of the event. Every effort is being made to consider individual circumstances and to minimise the inconvenience placed on the community.
