2022 DALBY TRIATHLON
Recently the Dalby Trisports committee took the decision that we will be unable to
hold the 2022 Dalby Triathlon for financial reasons. This has been caused by the huge
increase in cost which we would incur to comply with the new (1/12/2021) Queensland
Governments regulations for traffic management for temporary events.
Traffic control for past events has cost in the vicinity of $2,500.00. To comply with
the newly introduced regulations it will cost us somewhere between $13,000.00 and
$16,000.00 for traffic management to stage the event.
The committee felt that we have no option but to cancel the event at this time. While
we were able to attract some new sponsors we lost out naming rights sponsor, and so
even with reducing prize money and increasing entry fees the event would still have run
at a considerable loss.
The committee will continue to make esquires and attempt to find a way of reducing
the traffic management cost. We hope to be able to stage the event in the future.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the triathlon in previous years, the volunteers
who have helped stage the event and our sponsors, hopefully we will be able to
stage the event at some time in the future.
