Byron Bay Triathlon

Get stuck into race season with the Byron Bay Triathlon

The Byron Bay Triathlon is steeped in history and is now in its 19th year. It is an Olympic Distance event and attracts around 1,300 competitors from many different countries. Traditionally it is held on the second weekend in May every year and signals the last race in the QLD/NSW triathlon calendar. As a result it is often seen as an end of season party for many competitors with a big party on the Saturday night. Due to its fantastic location, many competitors also bring their family, stay for a week and relax in the beautiful Byron Shire.

The Byron Bay Tri is regarded by many as one of the friendliest triathlons on the coast. Competitors enjoy a 1.5km ocean swim in the crystal clear, tranquil waters of Byron Bay; a 40km cycle past cane fields, rainforest, coastal bush and the gently rolling farmland of Northern NSW; then they top it all off with a run through the streets, under the picturesque Byron Bay Lighthouse.

The race is held over two full days with Olympic and Sprint races on Saturday 9th May and ocean swim and Mother’s Day run held on the Sunday 10th May.
