The Glencore Great Western Games continues this weekend in Mount Isa with action in trail running, mountain biking and dragon boat racing.
The Great Western Games closing ceremony will follow the dragon boating at Lake Moondarra on Sunday afternoon from 2pm.
These events follow last weekend's opening ceremony and action in hockey, cycling, pistol shooting and bowls in Mount Isa.
There was also a duathlon on Sunday hosted by the Mount Isa Running and Triathlon Club, the IsaRATs, at Lake Moondarra.
The duathlon is a dry variation on the tri, with a long run leg in place of swimming followed by a cycle leg and completed by a shorter run leg.
There were two categories on offer.
In the standard category athletes did a10km run / 40km bike / 5km run while in the sprint they did half that - a 5km run / 20km bike / 2.5km run.
Joshua Brock took out the elite standard men's event in 2:08:31 ahead of Toby Wicks while Kim Alcorn won the elite ladies in 2:29:24 ahead of Clare Lehman and Bonnie Anderson,
In the sprints Mark Thinee won the elite men's in 1:05:16 ahead of Benjamin Alcorn and Ryan McNamara while Kim Lynch won the elite ladies in 1:11:41 ahead of Colleen Boschoff and Kristie Broad.
IsaRATs president Kim Alcorn said the club was delighted with the success of the new event.
"We had more participants than in the two (lead-up) races and it's good to see those numbers increasing," Ms Alcorn said.
"And it was good to see those who competed in earlier races come back and do really well."
Ms Alcorn said a different type of fitness was required for regular triathlon competitors used to the swim leg.
"It was a big game changer especially for those people a fish in the water and took them out of their comfort zone," she said.
