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 SunSmart 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!
