What’s it all about….
The SunSmart Busselton Festival of Triathlon is entering into its 21st 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. 2021 will see the evolution of the event to include the Busselton 100 triathlon. This includes a swim alongside the iconic Busselton Jetty, a ride through the Tuart Forest and a 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 Teams Triathlon, perfect for those who a new to triathlon and are looking for a lighthearted introduction on what it has to offer. 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.
