Description

Welcome to the Cronulla Triathlon Club’s 35th Richie Walker Memorial Aquathlon (RWA) to be held on 6 Feb 2021. 

This event was designed to honour much-loved club member Richie, who passed away from a heart condition. All profits are donated in Richie's name to The Heart Foundation, assisting their research into the causes and cures of heart disease http://www.heartfoundation.org.au/

Over the years this race has been held by the Cronulla Triathlon Club, and you the competitors, have helped raise over $100,000 for the Heart Foundation.

This year's race will again be held in the beautiful surrounds of Gunnamatta Park and Bay. 

The 1000m swim leg is held in Gunnamatta Bay, starting on the shoreline of the bay beside the swimming baths. The swim leg for all other events is held within the enclosed baths for the safety of our younger/less experienced competitors. The run is cross country style, all within the boundaries of Gunnamatta Park.

We will be abiding by the COVID-19 restrictions that are present at the time of the race and we appreciate your co-operation with any adjustments to the race format that will allow this race to continue in a safe manor. 

Please keep an eye on our website for up-to-date COVID announcements and check your emails for any race procedure changes.

We will continue this year with the ENTICER event, consisting of a 500m swim and 3.3km run. The swim for this event is contained within the baths catering for those new to aquathlons or not quite ready for the open distance. This event is open to anyone 17 years of age or older.

This year, the RWA is proud to host the ITU Youth, Junior, and U23 Aquathlon Championship, TriNSW Aquathlon Championship as well as serve as a qualifier for the 2021 ITU World Championships. 

You may notice small changes in the age group categories upon registration, however this is to comply with the ITU age groupings.

See you at the start line!
