No it’s not a watercraft with really big wheels, it’s the latest event in triathlon circles to be added to the WT World Championships. Essentially it’s the same as the long course, just without the run. It’s the swim, then through transition 1 and onto the bike and finishing off when the athlete passes into transition 2.
Maybe you are suffering from an injury that requires non-impact activity, maybe you just don’t like to run or maybe you have another event on the horizon and don’t want to wear yourself out. With the addition of Aquabike to Husky Long Course you can now be part of the action.
This year’s event is an Australian Championships event, and an WT World Qualifying Event for Townsville 2022.
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.
* Booking & payment processing fees are NOT included
