E News 8 Oct 2014

Hi All,

We have a triathlon (our first in a while) coming up on Sunday, a very doable 300m swim, 13km bike, 3km run. 

Always enjoyable, this distance is a favourite and judging by our entry numbers we will be seeing many of you down at Lake Alexander.

If you are new to Darwin Triathlon Club – welcome!  We look forward to supporting you in your first event.  Do have a peep at the attached basic rules of triathlon so that there are no surprises on race day.

As part of your online registration we have been asking you to add your timing chip number.  If this is your first event with us, you collect & sign for your chip (free) at registration.

We ask that all participants attend the rego desk to be checked in on Sunday morning.
