E News 8 April 2015

Hi All,

Some impressive racing and training by our members took place over the Easter Break, here at home as well as away.  Not much chance of chocolate hitting their hips.

There is no doubt the Ray White Bayside NT Sprint Distance Triathlon motivates our local athletes and is a top calendar highlight.  Whether you are dead set focussed on a personal best or just participating for fun, it is the ideal distance.  And it’s not too late to enter - see details below.

Saturday’s event also finalises our club Sprint and Women’s series.

Good luck to all those participating on Saturday and thanks to our members who have already volunteered to help out.
