Overview

The Australian Alpine Ascent (AAA) Multisport Festival is a beautiful, scenic, beautiful set of events. The festival includes long course and standard distance triathlons and two trail runs.

You’ll cross through the scenic Kosciuszko National park, with a stunning start and finish at Charlotte Pass Village; it’s brutal, but it’s beautiful and the courses have been designed to showcase the very best of the Snowy Mountains along the way.

This festival is quickly becoming the Southern Hemispheres benchmark event, testing speed, stamina and strength and is expected to draw a world-class group of endurance athletes set to take on new heights Down Under.
