OCTOBER - 5th & 6th 2019
The Agnes Water Triathlon is an annual not-for-profit local sporting event held in the beautiful town of Agnes Water, Queensland.
The Agnes Water Triathlon was first staged in 2003, under the direction of local, Marg Darcy. The race has since become a popular event on the race calendar, attracting triathletes from throughout Central Queensland.

Agnes Water and it’s twin town of Seventeen Seventy, is located between Bundaberg and Gladstone, adjacent to the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. Our town is off the main highway, so not as commercialised as the gold and sunshine coasts, but very popular with grey nomads and back packers.
The weather in early October is normally glorious, and the water is normally very clear, and a comfortable 24 degrees celsius. Note from the photos, that we may get a little surf at the start of the swim. The cycle leg is mostly flat, and travels along a quiet, country road, which is closed to traffic for the event. And in 2019, the run leg will take place almost entirely on Agnes Water main beach (at low tide, with mostly firm and level sand, making for a quite comfortable running surface).
Race distances are as noted above, and you can enter as either a solo competitor or as a team of two or three. Minimum ages as per Triathlon tab.

The whole family is catered for with the Aquathlon. Lifeguards will provide water safety.
The Aquathlon is focused on participation and fun, rather than competition. Through events like this, we want to encourage kids to be involved in water sports, thereby improving their safety skills, and leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
Kids can participate either as individuals or as part of a team of two or three.
