The IGA Callala Triathlon Festival is much loved by those who know this as the Boutique Triathlon. Set on the northern shores of Jervis Bay, Callala Beach is a pristine location with a laid back feel. The festival features the popular distances Standard, Sprint, Super Sprint and an Aquabike event (Swim, Bike only Standard Distance), all of which can be done either individually or as a team.

Course Details

Standard

Swim 1.5 Km

The swim course takes you in Jervis Bay. The standard distance swim will start and finish on the beach adjacent the community hall car-park.

Bike 40 Km

Athletes will commence the bike course at the Callala Beach Community Hall car-park. After exiting the water, athletes will run up the barricaded passageway and into the Transition Area. Athletes will push their own bicycle to the roadway and commence the cycle let at the appropriate official start line marked on Quay Rd for the one lap bike course.

Cyclists will mount their bicycle on Quay Rd and head along Centre St then left onto Callala Beach Rd. Cyclists will continue west along Forest Rd to a turnaround point. At this point, cyclists will do a u-turn and return along the same route back to the transition area.

Run 10 Km

The Callala Beach Standard distance run course will be a 1 lap course. Runners commence the run by running out of the transition area, proceed along Centre St (running on the footpath on the left of the road), and LEFT onto King George St, continue until you reach the footpath at Myola Road. Continue along the footpath, heading into the bush trail behind the caravan park and then onto Catherine Street to a turn point near the boat ramp and then return on the same route to the finish line.

Aquabike (Standard)

This is the latest event in triathlon circles to be added to the ITU Word Championships. Essentially it’s the same as the Standard distance, just without the run. It’s the swim then through transition 1 and onto the bike and finishing off when the athlete passes into transition 2.

Maybe you are suffering from an injury that requires non-impact activity, maybe you just don’t like to run or maybe you have another event on the horizon and don’t want to wear yourself out. With the addition of Aquabike to Callala Triathlon Festival you can now be part of the action.

Swim 1.5 Km

The course is a one lap open water triangular shaped swim in the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay with a beach start on Huskisson Beach.

Bike 40 Km

After exiting the water, athletes will run up the southern stairs from the beach turning right onto the footpath and continue to the bike compound.
Athletes will commence the Bike Course at the northern end of White Sands Park, at the official start line marked on Hawke Street. They must walk their bike within the compound and only mount at this line.

Sprint

Feel the need for speed, maybe a step up from the Super Sprint or a hit out for something bigger around the corner? Sprint racing has plenty of action and excitement as you swim, bike and run yourself around some of Australia’s most stunning locations.

Swim 750 M

The Sprint swim course will consist of a 750m, swim in Jervis Bay. The swim will start and finish on the beach adjacent the community hall car-park.

Bike 20 Km

For the 20km bike course, cyclists will mount their bicycle and head onto on Quay Rd and turn left onto Callala Beach Rd until they reach Forest Rd intersection for a left turn. Cyclists will continue west along Forest Rd to the turnaround point. At this point, cyclists will do a u-turn and return along the same route back to the transition area. These intersections will be manned by RMS accredited traffic controllers for the duration of the cycle legs.

Run 5 Km

The Callala Beach Triathlon run course will be 2 laps.
Runners commence the run by running out of the transition area and heading west down King George St. Continue along Myola Road footpath until the run turn. Complete the lap by returning on Myola Rd and down Quay Rd until lap turn near transition. Complete 2 laps.

Super Sprint

Swim 200 M

Competitors will complete a 200m swim at Callala Beach in the pristine waters of Jervis Bay.

Bike 8 Km

The 8km bike course is a one lap course. Follow Quay Rd east from transition and turn left onto Callala Beach Rd. Cyclists will continue north along Callala Beach Rd until the turn around point near the intersection of Forest Road. Return along the same route back to the transition area.

Run 2 Km (Or Walk If You Like)

The run course will be a 1 lap 2 km course. Runners commence the run by running out of the transition area and heading west down King George St and onto the Myola footpath until the run turn. Complete the lap by heading down Quay Rd into transition.

Travel

Getting There

Event Central is at the Callala Beach Community Hall and Car Park: Cnr of Quay Road and Centre St in Callala Beach.

Coming south from Sydney, you will need to find the M1 and make your way towards Nowra.

The Berry bypass is now in operation speeding up the journey time from Sydney. However, you may wish to stop in Berry township, with its beautiful cafes, boutique shops and the famous ‘donut van’

Then, once you have made your way through Nowra, about 10k further south you are looking for the left turn onto Forest Road. Be mindful that this road will close at 7:30 am so plan extra time to take the detoured route which is via Greenwell Point Road.

Taking this, about 3k later you then have a right turn on Callala Beach Rd.  This will take you into the township and onto your required destination of the Community Hall found at the end of Centre St.

Please note the road closure times of Forest Road (where the bike course takes place for most races) and that alternative access is via Greenwell Point Road.

  • Did the Standard in 2018

    EPIC! Loved every minute of this race. Beautiful course and well organised. Will definitely be returning next year.
  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    Road was a bit rough in sections. Maybe more alerts about that. And also a bit hillier than I expected. But overall well signed and volunteers did a great job with directions.
