E News 24 September 2014

Hi All,

We take this opportunity to welcome our new members and to say it’s great to see many of you signed up for our triathlon at Lake Alexander on the 12th

300/13/3 is the perfect distance for a Sunday morning, you can tri and then fit in a coffee or a trip to the markets afterwards as well!  We look forward to having you join us.

You will have noticed that someone flicked the weather switch and the Build-Up has kicked in ~ there goes the Dry.   

Regardless of the weather it is great to hear so many of you are now training for various events in Darwin, around the country and even overseas.  We are lucky to have some fantastic destination triathlons right on our doorstep.
