Full Steam Ahead for SunSmart Busselton Festival of Triathlon 17th October 2020
Firstly we would like to thank those people who have already registered to compete at this years SunSmart IRONMAN 70.3 Busselton. As a locally owned and operated event, we rely heavily on the success of the event to fund and develop the services of Triathlon WA. Without the participation and support from the triathlon community this event would not be possible.
The impact of COVID-19 on the events industry around the world has been devastating. We are extremely lucky here in WA that everyone has done their part to help flatten the curve and as such we have seen significant restrictions eased over the last fortnight. Due to these recent announcements from the WA State Government, we are confident that the SunSmart IRONMAN 70.3 Busselton event will take place as scheduled on Saturday 17 October 2020.
We understand there is still some uncertainty around interstate and international participants access to WA who have currently registered, and we will be providing updated communication to these participants over the coming weeks.
We are working closely with all of our delivery partners to ensure our participants and spectators can take part in the event, with health and safety front of mind for all.
For now, we encourage our community to keep training towards their goals. Find a club or training group to keep you motivated over the next 16 weeks, to give yourself the best race day experience you can. There are no more price rises between now and the event day, but we do encourage you to register sooner rather than later. As this is likely to be one of the first major events in WA, we would hate for you to miss out on an entry.
