Please note that as the lake is fresh water with limited buoyancy and visibility, wet suits will be compulsory for all adult age group athletes for both the short and long course. There is no wetsuit requirement for the kids triathlon. Normal Triathlon Western Australia rules will apply for Open competitors based on water temperature on the day. If you are keen to participate but are unable to obtain a wetsuit for the race please contact Stadium Triathlon Club (stadiumtri.kvt@gmail.com) to discuss your situation.

Race Weekend Information

Long and short course races commence mid-morning on Saturday following an athlete briefing, with the last long course athlete crossing the finish line mid-afternoon.

A presentation dinner is held at the resort on Saturday evening followed by a live band for entertainment.

The TRYStars kid’s triathlon commences early Sunday morning, to allow plenty of time to travel back to Perth, but not too early so parents get to sleep in a bit.

A detailed race weekend schedule will be published in the Athlete Information Guide that will be issued to all registered participants, and a summary schedule will be posted on this web page as the event approaches.

Refreshments for spectators will be available on Saturday and we expect Manjimup Senior High School to be running their bacon and egg and sausage sizzle again on Saturday.

Accommodation is fully booked at Karri Valley Resort (www.karrivalleyresort.com.au, (ph. 08 9776 2020). We recommend you contact the Pemberton Accommodation Association (http://www.pembertonstay.com.au) to locate the best accommodation for you. There is ample accommodation available close to the event.

TRYStars Kid’s Triathlon

Partnering with Healthway and Triathlon WA, Stadium Triathlon Club brings to you the Kids Triathlon at Karri Valley Resort. This event invites children between the ages of 7-13 who enjoy swimming, cycling and running. All kids will participate in a short swim in the lake around our volunteers serving as swim buoys, then a cycle on closed internal resort roads and a run on the resort road and trails.

Course lengths will differ depending on age group:

Age 7-9: 100m swim, 2km cycle, 500m run
Age 10-13: 200m swim, 4km cycle, 1km run
Teams (2 or 3 participants 7-13 years): 200m swim, 4km cycle, 1km run

All kids will receive a medal for participating.

In 2016 the kid’s triathlon was moved to Sunday morning so that parents competing on Saturday can cheer their children on without having to worry about their own race. This has proven to be a hit, with Karri Valley Resort offering a late check-out and other athletes coming out to support the kids before heading home themselves.
