E NEWS 29 JULY 2015

Our juniors were in action at the Velodrome for a run|bike event at the weekend.  If ever you need some motivation, get along to one of our junior events and you can't help but feel their enthusiasm!

A big thank you to Steve Goat, Melissa Lind, Tim Ellison and the other wonderful volunteers who assisted with this event - kids had a ball!

Don't forget that so long as they are competent to ride on open roads and meet event age requirements, juniors are welcome to participate at ALL Darwin Triathlon Club events.  We would love to have more of the 14-19 year old bracket taking part and there are lots of suitable events coming up on our calendar including the Super Sprint events commencing in September.
