In light of recent events, it is with much disappointment that RTC together with the Orbost Footy Club announce the cancellation of 2021’s Marlo Triathlon  this coming weekend. 
This was always a possibility given the uncertainty of the current times, but the decision has been based on our need to protect the safety of our small community and the health of our region overall.

Marlo Triathlon

Saturday 9th January 2021

Swim start in Snowy river Marlo


Picturesque Marlo where the Snowy meets the sea. Marlo is one of the best kept secrets in Victoria. Situated on the coast it boasts a thriving little community equipped with supermarket, hotel and accommodation – caravan parks, holiday units and holiday houses. With its picture postcard transition site and ideally located outside the pub this twilight event is one not to be missed!


Team entry is available for the Sprint & Fun distance triathlons.
