E News 2 December 2015


Our Christmas Splash N Dash is always fun and this year we were back to Nightcliff Pool where the big revamp of the area continues.

We had to do some quick thinking to manage the course when promised gate access wasn't available, but that was all easily sorted and added to the event.

Thanks to the enthusiasm of the adults and juniors alike, the joint relay was definitely the highlight with plenty of high fives happening afterwards!

A huge shout out to RD Rob Weatherald, Junior Coordinator Mel Lind, water safety provider Tania Sloane, Denise, Tim, Diane, Clare & Moira and to the many other volunteers who contributed to the success of this joint senior/junior event. Thank you!

With Christmas rapidly approaching many of our members depart Darwin & scatter in all directions over the coming weeks. 

President Tony Cox and the Darwin Triathlon Club committee would like to take this opportunity to thank our all members who have participated in our events this year; the wonderful volunteers who willingly give of their time so members can race; the coaches who have continued to assist members to achieve their goals and major sponsors who have contributed to our events (inc Ray White Bayside, Cycle Zone Darwin and Blue Cycles) - together we have had another fantastic year of triathlon and we look forward to bringing you more of the same in 2016.

We hope you all have a safe and happy festive season.
