EVENT PROGRAM: The window below displays the official Event Program for the 2023 Eagle Bay Epic. This fully explains the event with confirmed schedule, course details, transition areas and more. All event attendees are strongly encouraged to read it before the event.
The race operations are centred around 2 different locations:
Eagle Bay Brewery: Event expo, registration, race start / finish
The event centre will be located on the grass immediately in front of the Eagle Bay Brewery on Eagle Bay Road. There is plenty of parking on the grassy paddocks surrounding the venue.
- T4: mountain bike ride to final (team) run – bike drop happens here. Note, T4 is located 200m from the finish line.
Vincent Street in Old Dunsborough: Transition 1, 2 and 3
After starting at the Eagle Bay Brewery all competitors race to Dunsborough and the large transition area zone located on the foreshore at the junction of Vincent Street and Bay View Cres.
This is the location of the following transitions:
- T1: trail run to ocean swim
- T2: ocean swim to ocean paddle
- T3: ocean paddle to mountain bike ride
All participants must have their registration kit prior to race start. Competitors do not necessarily need to collect their own registration kit in person – friends, team mates and family members can collect your items on your behalf.

A comprehensive medical team will be attending the event to assist with any first aid or medical accidents that occur to competitors or support crew during the event. This will include an event doctor
Transition areas and support crews:
Support crews are not mandatory. They can make logistics a bit easier but they will have virtually no impact on your overall placing if you are organised before the event. The following guidelines are in place for all transition areas
- No external support may be provided to competitors inside the fenced off TA enclosure (or out on the course). Support crews can only enter a TA to drop off equipment for their competitor but must leave the TA immediately after doing so. The only exception is that competitors can receive assistance to pull down race bibs (especially over PFDs) from other competitors or from spectators who are located outside the TA fence.
- Only the team mate in the immediate next leg is permitted to wait inside the TA – other team mates and support crews must wait outside the fenced off enclosure.
- Bikes can only be collected upon presentation of the bike collection token attached to the MTB number plate
- Kayaks can only be collected upon presentation of the kayak collection token attached to the Kayak Sticker.
DUNSBOROUGH TRANSITION PLAN
All competitors should be aware of the set up and flow of the Dunsborough Transition Area as pictured below. This will be explained more fully in the event program circulated before the event.
