What’s it all about….

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, having previous iterations of the Long Course race at Rottnest Island, Collie, and Margaret River before 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 extremely successful and popular Busselton 100 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.

The event also offers a range of festival events for those upcoming athletes looking to kick start their triathlon career in a fun and exciting way. This includes the Busselton 100 Teams Triathlon, perfect for those who a new to triathlon and are looking for a light-hearted introduction on what it has to offer, plus the Aquabike, perfect for those who are recovering from an injury or just aren’t keen on running! The Busselton Foreshore Triathlon made it’s debut in 2022, including a Sprint and Enticer distance, proving to be extremely popular selling out months before race day. There is also the SunSmart Kids Triathlon, great for the little ones who have watched everyone else cross the finish line over the weekend and are eager to give it a go themselves. Make sure you don’t miss your spot and get those registrations in early!

There are many things that make the event great, but the greatest thing of all is that it is owned and managed by Triathlon WA. Triathlon WA are the home body of triathlon within our state, they are a non-for-profit organisation operating for the love of the sport and appreciation of its members. Triathlon WA are proud to deliver this event, they are proud of each and every one of the athletes who cross that finish line and are proud of the volunteers and local community who rally around it

If you have ever been to Busselton then you will know that there is no place like it, so much so that is has been named the tourism and event capital of our state. The Busselton Festival of Triathlon is the perfect excuse to head to Busselton and embrace it’s beauty!
