ORGANISERS of the Col Pearce Corporate Triathlon are predicting a record turnout for this year's event at Pialba's Seafront Oval.

Hervey Bay Triathlon Club president Ron Morgan said more than 100 teams had registered for Sunday's race, which features 300m swim, 10km bike ride and 3km run.

Registrations are still open, but teams have to get in quick with entries to close tomorrow.

Last year's triathlon raised $8000 for Cancer Council Queensland and Morgan is confident they would top the $10,000 mark this year.

Wacky costumes and bright coloured outfits were a feature of last year's event, befitting the spirit of the race.

"It's an organised, fun event and everyone has a lot of fun," Morgan said.

"People don't have to exercise for it and don't have to be super athletes.

"You only have to do a small run, a small bike or a small swim and be part of a team."
