AQUABIKE – ALL THE FUN OF THE BUSSELTON 100 WITHOUT THE 18KM RUN!

Take on the 2km swim alongside that Iconic Jetty, an 80km bike ride (or 40km for the WQE option) through the beautiful Tuart Forrest and a 350m run to the finish line to say cheese for the camera! The Busselton AquaBike is perfect for those who have an injury, struggle with the run leg, or if running just isn’t your thing… Get involved in the fun!

We’ve just added an additional Busselton AquaBike distance option of a 2km swim and 40km cycle (1 lap of the bike course), which will serve as the AusTriathlon Age Group Team Qualifying Race. AquaBike athletes now have the chance to earn points for qualification to represent Australia at the World Triathlon Championships in Wollongong next year! Learn more HERE.
