Triathlon event Sufferfest to hold a race in Bunbury in 2018

Bunbury is set to host a new event in 2018 with Sufferfest confirming the city as an added location for the Sufferfest Triathlon Australia Series. 

Sufferfest pits triathletes from across the nation against each other across a number of different circuits to find out who has the best endurance. That athlete will be named the Sufferfest Champion. 

In WA, Sufferfest races are also held at Cottesloe and on Rottnest Island. 

Saturday, February 10, 2018 will see hundreds of athletes descend on Bunbury to take on a local course over two distances – the long course and the sprint fest.

Long course competitors will complete two laps of the 1.9 kilometre swimming course off Koombana Beach, ride five laps of the 18 kilometre bike course which takes in Bunbury’s beautiful coastline and run four laps of the 5.26 kilometre foot course around the Leschenault Inlet. 

Sprint fest competitors will complete one 500 metre swim lap, one 18 kilometre cycle lap and one 5.25 kilometre lap of the running course. 

The Sufferfest event is tied into the WA leg of the Australian Beach Games which will see 15 different sports including volleyball, soccer and dodge ball played over three days. 

The event is also set to feature live entertainment, food vans and an outside cinema, making it one of the first events to experience all that stage one of the Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project has to offer.
