The Roches Beach Cross Triathlon is a national qualifying race for the Australian team competing at the World Cross Triathlon Championships at Pontevedra, Spain in April 2019.

The event home is the Orana Girl Guide Camp at Roches Beach (near Lauderdale), in the Clarence Municipality, which is about a 10 minute drive from the Hobart Airport and approximately 20 minutes’ drive to Hobart. Roches Beach offers an ideal location for this event, with beautiful clear water, a fantastic coastal trail to run along, and beautiful vista of the coast line atop the highest point of the mountain bike course. In addition to the cross tri , a dry version will be offered with an extra run leg replacing the swim and also a trail run using the final leg as its course. The Roches Beach Cross Triathlon is open to the public to enter, with teams welcome.
