Elite Energy brings Standard (Olympic) distance racing to the idyllic coastal location of Huskisson , Jervis Bay. Husky is now famous for hosting one of the southern hemisphere’s largest triathlon festivals and the Australian Long Course Championships in February each year, although not quite as large – it is an event not to be missed.
