E News 22 April 2015

Hi All,

We have another very busy weekend coming up with Anzac Day on Saturday and our Duathlon taking place on Sunday morning out at Dripstone Park. 

With our Triathlete of the Year pointscore still wide open across the various age groups, we expect to see another good roll up for this event.

Our timing for the duathlon is just perfect with dragon flies, smoke and cooler conditions signally the start of the dry season!
