Teams Event coming up

The next race is the teams race on the 7 June 09 at Lake Alexander. Note the start time of 7.30am.

Paul Bell has agreed to take on the role of Race Director for this event.

The plan is to change the format from the past couple of times this race has been run.

Teams will be a team of three people. The event will be a relay format so only one member of the team is on the course.

The legs will be short so some thing like a 200 swim 5km ride and 1km run.

A team member will do one leg of the course then hand over to another team member to do the next leg. You keep going until each team member has done all three legs of the triathlon.

A team member can not do two legs in a row.

The legs must be done in the traditional order of swim, ride, run.

Some more information will come out closer to the event. So start getting your teams of three together and sharpen up your sprinting skills.
