The 3rd annual Fernwood All Girls Tri takes place this Sunday morning at Lake Alexander.
Darwin Triathlon Club event coordinator Anna Goat has been very busy behind the scenes and has a great group of volunteers lined up to ensure the participants again have a fantastic tri experience in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
Members note, the event reached sold out status (very) early and there are no race day registrations being taken.
If you are heading down to watch please remember that road closures will be in place from the gates at Lake Alexander from 7-9am. Please be early if you wish to park within East Point grounds and realize that you will not be able to exit until the road reopens.

5. Items for next E News or requests for re runs by 8pm Sunday.
1. Michelle Gailey (Mitchell) has had her pro spot confirmed for Ironman World Championships at Hawaii. She will join Kylie Gaffel and yours truly on the Big Island in October. Congratulations Michelle.
2. It’s almost as though the weather switch has suddenly been turned on to high. Hard to believe that in the week before the Long Course we were making a case for wetsuits to be allowed on the grounds of our chilly early mornings. Where are they now? Miss them already.
3. John Arrigo recently competed in Ironman New York. He says organisers had everything planned down to the smallest detail. Making sure you were on the ferry at 4am wasn’t hard but the few hours wait for race start after that, felt like forever.
4. Jo Ellis, Marcus Lisle and Amy Pallentine missed NT Long Course due to work commitments. Disappointing for all.
5. Some of our members featured in results at the NT Athletics championships. Congrats to Hamish Wiltshire, Bella Hatty and Joseph White. Hear Shaye Hatty also ran well & Lee Wilson was 2nd in the 5000m.
6. We had some wonderful feedback from our visitors who competed at the NT Long Course. Volunteers take a bow!
7. Have any of you registered to assist at Bike Count Tuesday and named Darwin Triathlon Club as your club?
8. Got some tri news, heading off somewhere to race or have a tri photo you would like to share? Email here.
9. You may be interested in an upcoming injury prevention/management session coming up soon. Details attached.
