Our Trickett Gardens is the ideal base for those who want to relax, rejuvenate, recharge or prepare for the Gold Coast Triathlon – Luke Harrop Memorial.
Our resort’s tranquil and tree-lined location in Surfers Paradise provides triathlon participants the perfect setting they need to recharge or unwind before the big event.
The Gold Coast Triathlon is a must-attend event since it started in Currumbin in 1989. After two years, the event moved to Southport Broadwater.
In 2003, the triathlon was renamed the Gold Coast Triathlon – Luke Harrop Memorial after Luke Harrop’s tragic death in January 2002. Harrop was a Gold Coast resident and one of Australia’s most respected triathletes.
The Gold Coast Triathlon is currently one of the most popular events in the sporting calendar.
Distances in the triathlon include the 750m swim, 20km cycle, 5km run, 300m swim, 10km cycle, 2.5km run, 100m swim, 2km cycle and 400m run.
We highly recommend you check-in to our Apartments Surfers Paradise if you want easy access to the event. Our resort also offers facilities that are sure to help triathlon participants relax. Our heated outdoor swimming pool can help soothe tired muscles. Our spa is best for a long soak after a tiring day. Feel your stresses dissolve after a rejuvenating session.
The Gold Coast Tri – Luke Harrop Memorial will take place on April 13, 2014 at the Broadwater Parklands. It is a short drive from our Apartments Surfers Paradise.
