Five reasons to race in Shepparton. 1. It’s a fast and flat course offering a great chance for a personal best time. 2. The event is centred on Victoria Park Lake which is now regarded as one of the best open swim courses anywhere. 3. It’s a tri-mad city and the crowds come out in force. 4. The Mediterranean-type climate of Australia’s fruit-growing capital has more sunshine per year than the Gold Coast and is at its best in November. 5. Shepparton is an easy 90-minute freeway drive north of Melbourne’s outskirts and became one of Australia’s triathlon strong-holds because of its long tradition in staging athlete-friendly 113 km events.
