“Aquathon” is a special experience- a huge fun, all age, community wide swim and run, and fun run held annually on Australia Day, January 26. It’s Australia’s largest and favourite swim and run with an amazing history.

The event attracts a audience that spans kids, beginners, to Olympic stars and all in between. Locals to internationals, those out for fun or for a race, to challenge themselves, take part as a group, family or raise funds for charity.. and part of the huge and fun Australia Day celebrations at Wollongong Harbour.

Across the morning their are four ‘swim and run’ distances, and the community fun of the charity ‘fun run and walk’ – everyone is invited and can take part. Distances offer novice, kids, fitness types to those out for a longer challenge- enter as an individual or two person tag team (one swims and one runner).

2019 marks the very special 20th edition- a huge event is planned and we hope you can attend.

Picture-perfect Wollongong Boat harbour (only a short hour south of Sydney) is the host location, offering a safe and scenic venue.

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.
