Hi All,

Great to see we have another huge weekend of home and away triathlon coming up. 

Highlight of course is the Club Championships down at Lake Alexander on Sunday.  The field is growing (entries close midday Friday or earlier if sold out), and with the lights flashing should be a cracker of a race. 

Love seeing that our newer members are continuing to step up in distance but if you aren’t up to doing it solo, there is always the team option.  Looking for other members to team up with?  Feel free to use our Facebook page to team match.
