The Hell of the West Weekend in Goondiwindi is in its 33rd year in 2024 and is a weekend encompassing the Hell of the West Triathlon and the GTH+ Super Saturday. Described as Queensland's iconic long course triathlon event, HOTW is the "toughest (and oldest) triathlons in Queensland" consisting of a two kilometre swim in the mighty Macintyre River, 80 kilometre "dead flat" cycle along the Barwon Highway heading west and 20 kilometre 'hot as hell' run along the picturesque Macintyre River. 2023 saw the event moved to March, which means the temperature may not reach the 38 degrees plus which is traditionally happened in Feb, however this does not change the gruelling murkey swim, dead flat cycle or the flat looped run course. Many athletes use the triathlon as part of their Ironman training sessions, some athletes use it as their first long course triathlon and many athletes compete as part of a team, just to add to the spirit of sportsmanship. It's a 'bucket list' triathlon for all triathletes worldwide. 2024 sees the continuance of the GTH+ Hell of the West Saturday Events: Hell Kids Triathlon. Firestarter Triathlon. 5 and 10 kilometre Inferno Charity Runs.
