Townsville Triathlon Festival

19 – 20 August 2017

The Strand, Townsville

The Townsville Triathlon Festival is entering its 15th year and is established as a significant race on the National Triathlon circuit. The Festival is proud to host the 2017 & 2018 Triathlon Queensland Scody Club Championships – North Queensland, which is testimony to the quality of the course and event itself.

Olympic Distance is back! 2017 will see the Olympic distance return to Townsville for both individual and team registrations.

The Townsville Triathlon Festival is the “Big Weekend” – a weekend of racing, fun and a full festival atmosphere with an array of events and activities to take part in across one massive weekend.

There are a total of 11 events across the 3 day event. The Festival will also offer competitors entertainment options including the opening night ‘Carbs with the Stars’ dinner, the option to go to the North Queensland Cowboys home game on the Saturday night and a post-event get together on the Sunday afternoon, as part of the “Big Weekend”.

  • Earn participation points (7-11) or series points (12+)
