Central Western Challenge:
Under Construction --

Inaugural Western NSW Interclub Triathlon Challenge:
The early Dubbo and Orange Triathlon events had quite and impact on the Central West in the 1980s, with a number of Western NSW regions developing local clubs resulting in some well run club triathlon series in the 1990's - Mudgee's successful Macquarie Valley Summer Series (headed by Nick Kastelein and Vickki Cannon) just one of the examples of the rapidly developing Triathlon Club Culture in the Central West.
With promoters Sports West scaling down there very successful annual Orange Triathlon, the local Orange Club was looking at a new approach in the late 1990's. So The well established central west triathlon clubs discussed a regional championship, with Mudgee's Nick Kastelein, Orange's Mark Chapman, Cowra's Harry Gamball, and Dubbo's Dougy Beal (and their clubs) getting together to work out the details.

The initial plan was to develop the championship on the successful NSW Clubs Format- So in the Summer of 1997/98 on the 8th March 1998 the inaugural event was held at Orange between teams from Dubbo, Mudgee, Cowra & Orange on their proven 500m swim 20k bike 5krun course. The points awarded on the day to decide the championship where calculated on the top 5 men and women in both the Open Seniors and the Junior Category.
