"I'm just hoping that I'll be happy with my times," Ally said.
She will be one of about 200 junior and senior competitors tomorrow in what is expected to be perfect weather conditions.
Ally hopes to work to her strengths in a sport that she is relatively new in.
"I haven't been doing this for that long, but want to improve my times," Ally added.
Fellow newcomer Jonathon Davies has the core fitness because he has played AFL for the BITS Saints.
"This will be my second triathalon," Davies said.
"I am doing it for the self discipline where you can control what you can control.
"This is my priority now, but I will try and play a few games for BITS except when there are races on."
The strongly-built Davies is aiming for a top-10 finish and claims that his strengths lie in swimming and the bikes.
Karlene Kilgour has just been ranked as the second best in Australia in the 30 to 34-year category in triathlon.
She hopes that form will continue tomorrow.
"I have had some big race sessions and hope to do the transitions well," Kilgour said.
Veteran Doug Madsen is hoping for more athletes to take part.
