10.  With the NT Sprint Triathlon coming up this weekend, thought a look back on past champions would be of interest.  There are also a couple of missing results & I'd love to fill these.  If  you can help do please get in touch.

11.  2016 NT Sprint Distance Triathlon is a Triathlon Australia selection event for ITU Age Group
Sprint Triathlon World Championships in Mexico (Sept) and will be draft legal for the first time.  If you are considering applying for a spot on the team after Sunday's event these FAQs may help.  If you are genuine, do apply even if Sunday's event is the only selection race you have done.  Each age group can have up to 20 male & 20 female on the team and often fall short when it is an overseas location.  Read the Selection Policy here.


1.  In response to a number of requests we have introduced a club discount code that new members can use to join for the remainder of 2015/2016.

2.  Please add the code DTC16 for a $40 reduction after you select Darwin Triathlon Club as your club.  Note: Join as a new member here and choose "club member".  The system will then work you through to selection of your NT Club.

3.  Your membership will be valid until 30 June 2016 and you will also save on NT Sprint entry and be eligible to compete at our upcoming club events including club championships, duathlon x2 and the Enduro.  Entry to NT Standard Triathlon will also be cheaper as a member.


This from 1996 -  with some very familiar names included.
