‘Creating Extraordinary’; one of its own mantras, an ideal Hamilton Island strives to achieve in its service throughout its resort, its restaurants and activities. It also extends to its Endurance Series; its portfolio of boutique sporting events held in the idyllic Whitsundays.

The Hamilton Island Triathlon has a self-imposed cap to ensure a boutique experience. The airport is shut down to be utilised for the bike course, swim cans are replaced with catamarans and the transition has ITU style racking with magnetic nameplates that become keepsakes, your gear is packed and awaiting you at bike collection and with it, a different gift each year. It’s not just the location that makes this race unique.

Sunday sees the Junior Triathlon and the Whitehaven Beach Ocean Swim. The kids get the full treatment; bibs, tattoos, ITU racking, silicone swim caps, medals and timing. Then if it’s off to one of the top ten beaches in the world for the Ocean Swim. Chartered boats deliver you to the soft white silica sands, the event crew well ahead of you with finish arch and carpet in place, fruit and hydration station stocked to the hilt.
