Hi All,

What a great turn out of members and try a triers at Aquathlon #2! 

A huge thank you to RD Belinda Townend and all the volunteers who assisted on the day.  It’s wonderful that our volunteer culture remains intact and you are all so willing to put up your hand when we shout out for assistance. Thank you!

We go off road this weekend at our annual mtb triathlon so it is time to dust the cobwebs off the hybrid if you haven’t already done so.  Those into mtb - ing wait all year for this one to come around and it is a popular event on our calendar!
