What’s it all about….
The SunSmart Busselton Festival of Triathlon is entering into its 22nd 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 extremely successful and popular SunSmart Busselton 100 triathlon which will continue into 2023. 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.
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 event 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!
