The Husky Triathlon has become one of Australia’s most loved iconic of the Long Course events. With some of the nation’s finest athletes sizzling the shores of the Shoalhaven, the 2016 Event will once again be the perfect platform to commence your taper for Ironman in May.
Set on the shores of Jervis Bay Marine Park, Huskisson comes alive when over 5000 fabulous athletes hit town for a weekend of multisport festival fun.
The course is a one lap open water triangular shaped swim in the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay with a beach start on Huskisson Beach.
1 hour cutoff.
After exiting the water, athletes will run up the southern stairs from the beach turning right onto the footpath and continue to the bike compound.
Athletes will commence the Bike Course at the northern end of White Sands Park, at the official start line marked on Hawke Street. They must walk their bike within the compound and only mount at this line.
The cycle course down Owen Street through the main shopping area and turns right at Tomerong Street and proceeds along to Woollamia Road turning right and along Woollamia Road to the "T" intersection with Jervis Bay Road.
At this intersection cyclists turn left and proceed along Jervis Bay Road, continuing past Huskisson and Forest Roads and along to the roundabout at The Wool Road where they turn left onto The Wool Road.
Proceed to Beach Street where they turn left and along Beach Street to the "T" intersection with Elizabeth Drive. Turning left onto Elizabeth Drive and proceeding along over the Moona Moona Creek bridge and onto Burrill Street, left onto Keppel Street and then a right turn back into Hawke Street and down to the transition area for the completion of the first lap.
Cyclists then complete this same course another 2 times and on the 3rd lap finishing at the southern end of White Sands Park at the bike finish line.
NB the one cycle aid station is located half way along Hawke Street.
4 hours 45 minutes cut off.
After leaving the bike leg and commencing the run, athletes will have wished this to be a marathon.
The run leg will be a 2 lap out and back course. Runners will exit from White Sands Beach Park and run along the footpath/cycleway that snakes along the foreshore of Jervis Bay.
The gentle ocean breeze that wisps across the bay will be a delight to the many athletes as they set out to chase their dreams, beat their mates, or just finish yet another race.
7 hour cutoff.
