ABOUT AQUA

GO AQUA and see why its the perfect way to kick off Australia Day

Welcome to the 2019 MMJ Australia Day Aquathon and Warrigal Fun Run-Walk.

The Australia Day Aquathon is one of the Illawarra’s premier sporting and community events held annually on 26th January. Located only 1 hour south from Sydney the picture-perfect Wollongong Harbour provides a scenic and safe venue.

As Australia’s favourite swim and run, a huge all age audience take part. Beginners, kids, elite athletes and anyone in between.

With four ‘swim and run’ events to choose, plus a Fun Run-Walk charity event, there is something for everyone. Professional organisation, loads of safety services, activities and a wonderful atmosphere all form part of the special event.

2019 will be our 20th anniversary with a huge fun-filled event planned – so lock in SATURDAY 26 JAN!

Wollongong harbour provides a spectacular backdrop for this event. The swim consists of a flat swim within the protected Wollongong harbour supported by experienced lifesavers. Then enjoy a flat run taking in the Illawarra’s premier ‘Blue Mile’ cycleway, North Beach and views up the spectacular coastline. The course is well marshaled, traffic free with plenty drink stations along the way.

Aquathon is proud to support local non for profits and charities and is celebrated by thousands whom come to take part, support or cheer on the sidelines.

Events kick off with the MMJ Australia Day Aquathon from 8am to 10am, and rounds off with the Warrigal Fun Run, Walk, Roll at 10am.

Then the fun continues afterwards, as Wollongong harbour plays host to a huge Australia Day festival.
