EARLY BIRD NOW OPEN ‘TIL 30 AUGUST 2020

Iconic in destination, with a spectacular course, combined with Byron’s much-loved party atmosphere…it’s easy to see why the Byron Bay Tri is one of Australia’s favourite multi-sport events! 2021 marks the 25th anniversary and we want you to celebrate with us!

Along with an Olympic Distance event, you have the option to enter the Sprint, Tempta, Kids or Teams race. Attracting over 1,400 competitors from across the world each year, many competitors bring their family, stay for a week and relax in the magical Byron Shire.

Regarded by many as one of the friendliest triathlons, competitors enjoy a 1.5km ocean swim in the crystal clear, tranquil waters of Main Beach; a 40km cycle past rainforest, coastal bush and the gently rolling farmland of Northern NSW; then top it all off with a run along the foreshore, under the picturesque Byron Bay Lighthouse.

About Byron Bay

The local Arakwal Aboriginal people's name for the area is Cavvanbah, meaning “meeting place”.

It’s been a great journey over 24 years and we are excited to be continuing the legacy of the Byron Bay Triathlon on the Australian sporting calendar.

After a successful 2019 with a compacted cycle course, we had a safe and secure ride; with a few other improvements and innovations for this year, we are sure you’ll be excited for what we have in store.

Excellent event, location and gifts each year.

Michelle Stubbs

I love the relaxed feel of the Byron Bay Tri. This race has managed to keep the atmosphere and feel of triathlon that I experienced when I started 20 years ago. Don't change, this is my favourite race.

Steve Kanowski

It was very well organised and run, the children had so much fun, thank you.

Anna Rogers

It was my first race there and will come back for sure with the whole squad. Great job!!

Glauber Scattolini Correa

First triathlon. Came as a supporter to my boyfriend last year for his first triathlon (never been to a triathlon event before that) and I saw the atmosphere and race and said I want to do Byron Bay triathlon. So a year later I came and did my first triathlon!

Hannah Mitchell

My first triathlon was incredible I have never done an ocean swim and I was nervous but felt so safe It was so beautiful.

Rachael Fanning

Great event. Didn’t think I’d like the lap format but it worked well as you could see your mates on the course.
