If last season taught us anything, it was to expect the unexpected. In a season that could have gone anywhere, we ended up having a really successful season by all metrics – race starts, membership, participation.
As restrictions begin to ease across the state, TNSW together with our Race Partners - have updated the calendar of events for season 2021/2022.
These are the ideal place to etch your name in eternal glory as the NSW Individual Champion across a set distance. Last year, with the goal of raising the profile of those who win these individual titles, Triathlon NSW launched our ‘Hall of Fame’ which will be updated after every event and remain on the Triathlon NSW website as a lasting reminder of those individuals who have excelled in their individual event and age group.
CLICK HERE to view our Hall of Fame from season 2021 / 2022.
And remember, you must be a fully financial member of Triathlon NSW in season 2021/2022 to be considered for the State Championships, so be sure to update your annual membership with Triathlon NSW and your club before you enter the event.

Elite Energy – Callala Triathlon Festival
Date – Saturday 18th DecemberI’s the latest event in triathlon circles to be added to the ITU Word Championships. Essentially it’s the same as the Standard distance, just without the run. It’s the swim then through transition 1 and onto the bike and finishing off when the athlete passes into transition 2. Maybe you are suffering from an injury that requires non-impact activity, maybe you just don’t like to run or maybe you have another event on the horizon and don’t want to wear yourself out. With the addition of Aquabike to Callala Triathlon Festival you can now be part of the action.
