Busselton Festival of Triathlon crosses the line as Professional Event of the Year

Busselton Festival of Triathlon crosses the line as Professional Event of the Year
July 29, 2016

The SunSmart Busselton Festival of Triathlon has won the Western Australian Sport and Recreation Industry Awards’ Professional Event category.

Held in the autumn and organised by Triathlon WA, the festival is headlined by a 70.3 Ironman race and also features an open-water swim, a fun run, a kids’ triathlon and other community activities.

The festival is supported by the Western Australian Government through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program, made possible by Royalties for Regions.

The Sport and Recreation Industry Awards, organised by the Department of Sport and Recreation and held every two years, recognise innovation and exceptional achievement across all areas of sport and recreation in Western Australian.

The SunSmart Busselton Festival of Triathlon was shortlisted for the Professional prize alongside the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro – also supported by Tourism WA – and HBF Run for a Reason.

Tourism WA sponsors a range of events throughout the State because of their economic benefits in attracting visitors and valuable media coverage for the State.
