Overview

Sixteen years strong and not slowing down, be a part of Australia’s favourite long-course!  The “Big Husky” Triathlon Festival has grown to become one of Australia’s most loved of the ‘Long Course’ events.  2021 marks 16 years of Big Husky excitement!

Huskisson is a spectacular spot to race and holiday with great local cafes and restaurants, a range of accommodation from camping, cabins, motels, the famous Husky Pub through to beach front homes.

The COVIDSafety challenges of our 2021 festival mean that, at this stage, we will have a limited schedule which will include our Ultimate, Classic, Sprint and Super Sprint races. Entries will be limited in order to comply with current NSW Health restrictions. We’re hoping this changes over the next few months, and we can plan for our traditional huge multi-sport weekend!
