The Triathlon WA Board are delighted to announce that the SunSmart IRONMAN 70.3 Busselton, as part of the Busselton Festival of Triathlon, will be held on Saturday May 2nd 2020.
After a decline in registrations over the last few years, Triathlon Western Australia had some tough decisions to make regarding the future of the event. The outpouring of support around saving the event, through social media and correspondence through the TWA office, was overwhelming and has been a contributing factor in why the event will continue.
The success of the event and its future does rely heavily on the Western Australian triathlon community, as well as long-time sponsors. So, we ask those who wanted to #SaveBussoHalf and the triathlon community to now get behind the event and ensure its continuation.
Changes and efficiencies have, and will, continue to be made, to aid in securing the future of the event and ensuring that it stays as one of the only locally owned and run IRONMAN events in the world.
Registrations for the 2020 event will open soon. Make sure you follow us on social media so you can be one of the first to enter.
The event will continue to rely on the support of the local WA triathlon community, and we have faith in the staff at Triathlon Western Australia and their contractors to deliver yet another amazing race in May.
So spread the word and lock the date in your diary – 2 May 2020.
