AGNES WATER Pharmacy JUNIOR AQUATHLON - SATURDAY OCTOBER 3rd, 2020
AGNES WATER Bendigo Community Bank TRIATHLON - SUNDAY OCTOBER 4th, 2020
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, Wide Bay and beyond.
Sunday October 4th, 2020
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. The 2020 run leg will be back to the streets of Agnes Water.
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.
Prior to the Event, Contestants will be advised by email of the protocols in place at the time due to the COVID-19 Virus.
Event Briefing Notes will be uploaded to the Website a couple of weeks prior to the Event. A post on our social media page will advise when they have been uploaded.
Check in will be available on Saturday the 3rd at Tom Jeffery Park between 1:00pm and 2:30pm.
Competitors can also check in from 6.00am on race morning. Bike racking is from 6.00am on race morning.

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.
