Australia Day Aquathon

8:00am - 12:00pm, Wed 26th January 2022

It’s time to get back to events in NSW!

Post the covid enforced 2021 cancellation, Australia’s favourite swim-run, the MMJ Aquathon is back for the 22nd annual edition on Wednesday, 26 January (Australia Day public holiday).

Aquathon day is what the locals call it, and what a blast it is.

Held at picture-perfect Wollongong Boat harbour, a little over an hour south of Sydney, offers a spectacular and safe venue.

Aquathon offers a mix of events for all ages, with four swim and run distances which can be enjoyed by kids to adults, beginners to the competitive and in individual or tag team categories.

For those keen to stay on dry land, the 5km Blue Mile Funrun/walk makes for a fun scenic hitout or family stroll.

Wollongong has become one of NSW’s destination hot spots and the harbour is central to the city, shops, cafe and vibrant centre.

Come with the family, friends or own your own and get set for a very special event- be cheered on by a huge crowd, smile as you receive your finisher medal.

Organisers go all out ensuring a fun, safe, covid safe approved event for all.

Sign up, have a blast and support local events to get back on their feet.
