Huskisson, a quiet coastal town set on picturesque Jervis Bay — the perfect place for a relaxing holiday or, you know, a gruelling triathlon. The Ultimate Husky Triathlon Festival has grown to become one of Australia's most-loved long course events, so if you've been saying to yourself that 2018 is going to be the year you conquer the swim-bike-run, then get yourself to Huskisson.
The triathlon involves a two-kilometre swim through the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay, followed by a breezy 83-kilometre bike ride then a cool 20-kilometre run. If you're a water baby, there's also the one-kilometre ocean swim, or if you're more of a get in, get out kind of person, there's the Super Sprint (Enticer) which involves a 200-metre swim, eight-kilometre bike ride and two-kilometre run. PSA: You can totally wear flippers in this one — but not if you're after a podium finish.
And for those keen to unwind after the ultimate workout, we hear the post-event celebrations at the Husky Pub go off.
