When we set the date for the 2020 COLORBOND ® steel Airlie Beach Triathlon, we had no idea of the challenges that the world was to face in 2020.

We have been having extensive discussions with our stakeholders, including Corporate Partners, Community Supporters, Triathlon Australia and the Whitsunday Triathlon Club.

Unfortunately, due to reasons related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic including the uncertainty of the duration of the ongoing impact on local community resources, we deeply regret to advise that the 2020 edition will not take place as planned.

With complicated restrictions and the lack of capacity to ensure a safe and enjoyable race, we have decided to cancel the 2020 COLORBOND ® steel Airlie Beach Triathlon.

We share the deep disappointment of this news as we love producing the Airlie Beach Triathlon as much as you love racing in paradise. It has been an incredibly hard decision for us, but in the current climate, one we trust is right for your safety, the safety of the community and the safety of our volunteers, and spectators.

All currently registered athletes will receive an email from us that will involve the option for a race entry refund or a rollover of entry until the 2021 race.

While we are prevented from holding our event on 2020, we are already looking forward to coming back stronger in 2021.

The Airlie Beach Triathlon Team would like to thank you for your patience and support in this challenging time.
