ABOUT THE EVENT

The Busselton Festival of Triathlon is entering into its 23rd year and is an event that is much loved by the triathlon community. It is an event with long standing history, originating in Collie before moving to Rottnest Island, Margaret River and finally settling in the town of Busselton where it has been welcomed by the community since 2002.

Since then, the event has grown and now spans across an entire weekend. 2022 saw the evolution of the event to include the Busselton 100 long course triathlon which will continue into 2024. The Busselton 100 includes a 2km swim alongside the iconic Busselton Jetty, an 80km ride through the Tuart Forest and an 18km run along the Busselton Foreshore and through the event village filled with hundreds of spectators who have come just to cheer our athletes on.

TESTIMONIALS

Community

This is my favourite event of the season. The crowd, the officials, the volunteers, club alley. The community out there really adds to the event experience. COULDNT ASK FOR BETTER.

Busselton 100 Course

I love the Busselton 100 Course. Great design, great road conditions, great aid station management, and the best swim I've had at the event!

We'd like to give a HUGE thank you to our amazing event volunteers! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Our volunteers are the backbone of the Busselton Festival of Triathlon, helping at aid stations, managing crossing points, checking in athletes, handing out race packs, setting up, keeping recovery running, and filling so many other vital roles. Hundreds of incredible people volunteer for us, and we genuinely couldn't have run such a fantastic weekend without them.A special shoutout goes to our Technical Officiating team, who are all volunteers. Officials give up their own time throughout the season and regularly engage in professional development to ensure that races can happen safely in Western Australia. Thank you so much!We also appreciate all the athletes who thanked our volunteers and staff on race weekend. Our team and all the volunteers pour their heart and soul into the event to make it the best weekend possible, so it feels so awesome to have the hard work acknowledged.
