The enormous growth of the sport of triathlon in Australia has led to the formation of the Australian Professional Triathlon Race Directors Association Incorporated (APTRDA).

The formation of APTRDA will allow for a formal/officially recognised group to negotiate with stakeholders on a range of issues in the interests of all Race Directors nationally.

“This is a very significant historic development in the sport of Triathlon” said Ken Baggs OAM,   the Association’s inaugural President, a past Chairman of the Triathlon Australia Race Directors Committee and the former 27 year Race Director of Ironman and Ironman 70.3 races in Australia.
