The 3 Bay Challenge is a three stage biathlon where participants run between and swim at three of Sydney's iconic harbour beaches: Nielsen Park, Parsley Bay, Watsons Bay. The event is designed to be both challenging and unique, set in an idyllic location with the background drop of the Sydney CBD.
Held annually at the beginning of summer, the 3 Bay Challenge is a perfect weekend challenge for professionals, biathlon enthusiasts and those competing for the first time. The course consists of three running legs and three swimming legs. Total distance is 6km run and 750m swim. Marshall’s and lifeguards are on course at all times.
After successfully competing in the 3 Bay Challenge, the tradition is to all meet at the Watson’s Bay Hotel for a celebratory drink and bite to eat.
Your registration fee includes one drink and food item.
The event is a charity fundraiser. Our charity partner is the Australian Rhino Project which aims to establish a breeding herd of rhinos here in Australia as an insurance population for the world. Their populations are currently being decimated to the point of extinction in South Africa so the idea is that we move a herd over here as there is comparable ecology and relatively little risk of poaching.
