E News 11 February 2016



The rain stayed away for the first of our Off Road Triathlons held on Sunday at East Point. This resulted in participants going home much cleaner than in previous years.  I think some found this disappointing!

Race Director Aaron Caden, assisted by the guys from Cycle Zone, set a challenging but fun course and there was a collective air of achievement present at the finish line!

Big shout out to Aaron, Kevin Wells, Nic French, Emma Winterflood, Shaye Hatty, Tina Sanderson, Graeme Parsons, Kylie Scholz, Benita Bitner, as well as all those other fantastic volunteers who assisted at this event. We really appreciate the time & effort put in by all our volunteers which enables our members to continue to enjoy our events.
