Five reasons to enter Challenge Shepparton:

  1. A unique flat, fast course, ideal for beginners or those chasing a PB!
  2. The fresh water lake swim in Victoria Park Lake is regarded as one of the best open water courses in Australia
  3. Our community comes out in force to support the athletes
  4. There are many varied support events that create a festival atmosphere
  5. Shepparton is a picturesque and easy two hour freeway drive from Melbourne or under two hours from Melbourne Airport

 “The Shepparton community have played a major role in my triathlon career and the love of the sport. It was one of my first ever triathlons, racing against Olympian Simon Thompson, to holding the course record for so many years and winning Challenge Shepparton last year. The memories range from racing, supporting and watching the iconic triathlon. The Shepparton event is one that is truly a part of Victorian triathlon history and tradition.” Luke Bell 2015

Many athletes choose a sprint distance event as a stepping stone to a long course event or simply prefer the challenge of a sprint.

You will swim in the fresh water of Victoria Park Lake, ride one lap of the full long distance country course and run one lap of the scenic Challenge run course.

 “A really well organised and professional event and will definitely be back. Suitable for both beginners and advanced.  Great atmosphere and able to do the swim easily…….. Lots of hydration points during the run and a good recovery area with food and drink at the end. Probably the most enjoyable sporting event I’ve ever been to!
