Unfortunately, the 2020 Telstra Store Horsham Triathlon was been cancelled due to the low water levels in the Wimmera River, and the generally poor quality of the water.
Horsham hosts many sporting events all year round, and one of the most prominent sports events is the Horsham Triathlon, an annual event held every February.
The Horsham Triathlon has grown in leaps and bounds over the years to make it a premier event that attracts thousands of competitors and spectators to Horsham each year.

The senior event then follows where fitness enthusiasts and professional athletes can take part. The event continues to attract participants in increasing numbers every year because it seeks participation from both amateurs and professionals alike.
Participants can also form teams to compete at either level of the Horsham Triathlon, so if you are a strong runner but a weak swimmer, you can create a team to suit your strengths.
Regular people are encouraged to take part; you do not need to be a professional to participate. All ages, sizes and abilities are welcome, and any bike or gear will do. Just get moving! There are courses with varying lengths to suit all abilities.
The Triathlon senior races start from 5pm, with the Tri Long Course beginning at 5pm and consisting of a 500m swim, 20km ride and 5km run, while the Tri Short Course starts at 5.30pm and consists of a 200m swim, 7km ride and a 2.5km run.
This year, there will also be a “Junior Triathlon” aimed for 15-year-olds and under and starting at 4pm. So if you are interested in participating, come along and challenge yourself while you have fun!
