It’s been nearly 12 months since our last National Championships, and we’re thrilled to be kicking off our 2021 Australian Championships this weekend.
With five big races at four iconic race venues, the 2021 Australian Championships are shaping to be an opportunity to cheer on our fellow triathletes and bring the community together after a challenging 2020 season.
Melbourne will kick off the 2021 Australian Championships with the Australian Age Group Sprint Championships at the 2XU Triathlon Series this Sunday. Taking to the fast and flat streets of Elwood and Bayside Melbourne, Victorian triathletes and interstate visitors will get their first taste of glory in the sprint distance discipline.
The Series then heads to the iconic New South Wales backcountry venue of the Snowy Mountains, with the TreX Snowy Mountains hosting the Australian Age Group Cross Triathlon Championships on February 20. A favourite of the cross triathlon community, the Championships will feature that spectacular course backdropped by the stunning Snowy Mountains, making for an exciting affair for competitors and spectators alike.
The Big Husky Triathlon Festival will run double duties this season, with the event awarded both the Australian Age Group Long Distance Championship and the Australia Age Group Aquabike Championships. Taking place in Husskinson, NSW on February 27-28, the Big Husky Triathlon Festival is a stalwart of the New South Wales racing calendar. With the Australian Aquabike Championships making their return to the Australian Championships calendar for the first time in some years, it’ll be an event to brush up on with Aquabike featuring on the schedule for the 2022 World Triathlon Multisport World Championships in Townsville.
Rounding out the Australian Championships calendar is one of the iconic Queensland races, the Mooloolaba Triathlon on March 14. Hosting the Australian Age Group Standard Distance Championships, the Mooloolaba Triathlon features an exciting and challenging course – who can forget the Mooloolaba Hill, that will no doubt put our Australian Champions through their paces.
Despite the evolving pandemic and frequent changes to interstate travel, we hope that as many of our members as possible will get the chance to compete at the Australian Championships in the coming season.
Keep an eye on our social media over the coming months as we showcase each of these exciting Championship events and celebrate our 2021 Australian Champions.
