HBTC is the regions longest running Triathlon club, established in 1989. With dedication from volunteers our club continues to grow and develop every year. Our club is the only club in the region to run regular local triathlons and duathlons. This season we will be runnng a 7 race series, plus the Hogs Breath Hervey Bay 100 "The Hundy". Check out our events calendar page for all our race info. We also run the Col Pearce Corporate Triathlon, which is a fun, teams only event, and all funds raised are donated to the Rally for a Cause organisation. The HBTC committee is a community conscious bunch and like to give back where we can. We also hold a Silent Auction and Trivia night with all monies raised going to locals in need.
Hervey Bay is an idyllic location for the sport of triathlon with our beautiful calm and safe swimming waters. The majority of our races are held on the Esplanade, allowing you to take in the beautiful views as you ride and run. Hervey Bay is situated just 4 hours north of Brisbane, an hour south of Bundaberg. Off the coast we have World Heritage listed Fraser Island, just a short boat trip away. Our picturesque bay is known as the Whale Watching Capital of Australia.
We are an all inclusive club and cater for competitors from ages 5 to 105. People of all fitness levels and abilities are welcome, from elite to beginner and including the disabled. We are very proud of Team Gemm and their achievements, which include competing in the Gold Coast Marathon, Sunshine Coast 70.3, Mooloolaba Triathlon and also our local club races. HBTC has produced some outstanding Triathletes and we believe we have some future champions in the making. Some of our athletes have recently competed in the Hawiian Ironman World Championships and the Junior Elite World Championships in Mexico. Stay tuned to our blog post for athlete profiles and acheivements.
