Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink Series consists of six fun triathlon events in various locations throughout Australia. Our triathlons are for all women and boys and girls aged 7 to 13. The whole family can get involved in our Fun Run Pink which is open to all genders, young and old. Also known as Tri Pink, these events are a great way for family and friends to come together and enjoy an active and fun day out.

Albert Park is such an amazing location and to witness a sea of Pinkies beside the lake is something special. Bring your family and friends and join the fun!

Please note: All adult triathlon courses are female only races. Both boys and girls are eligible to participate in the 7-9 and 10-13 categories for the kids triathlons.

    • Did the 6k Fun Run in 2019

      It was advertised as 6km in actual fact it was only 5.68km... how can you get it so wrong??. Didn't like the out and back course twice.. medals were great, tops could be more pink instead of the orange/ pink color.
    • Did the Ultra Course in 2019

      Fantastic atmosphere and a triathlon that anyone can do.... cant wait until next year, wish there was one sooner
    • Did the Long Course in 2019

      Love this event! Have done it several times. This year it was an absolute pain for spectators/support people. With no access to the pool deck for spectators on the transition side it was super difficult to move around between the stages to support kids (who need someone visible at the start and at transitions 'just in case') as well as actually see some of the races! My husband was trying to get around to support our 9yo, then me in the long race, then our 12yo and it was almost impossible. Also, almost completely restricting access to the grassy area between the road and the finish area cut off a big section of where families can situate themselves with a 'home base' to cheer. Otherwise thanks for a good event. (The pre-race information session is always a highlight - hilarious!)
    • Did the Medium Course in 2019

      The overall experience was excellent for a beginner like me. Friendly and supportive.And seeing tutus flapping about on bicycles was gorgeous bonus!The only negative aspect is that I missed both the ride and run turn arounds, so I ended up riding a little further and running an extra kilometre. Having the general public and other race goers (not directly involved in the run at the time) criss crossing the run route particularly at the drinks station was confusing. A drinks station further up would have been helpful too.I am definitely considering participating in next years event. Well done to the event organisers, thank you to the volunteers and a big thumbs up to fellow tri-ladies/kids.
    • Did the Medium Course in 2019

      Its my first Triathlon. It came out much better than I thought. I was so inspired while I saw disabled ladies pressing on & finished the race! Will definitely do it again!
