E News 13 April 2016



Congratulations to all our members who participated in Triathlon NT's NT Sprint Distance Triathlon C'ships, Kids Triathlon and the NT Junior Championships at the weekend.

It was a huge weekend of triathlon particularly for the volunteers, many of whom were on hand helping out on both days.

The NT Sprint also hosted the third of our annual Women's & Sprint Series events, and on behalf of our members we extend a big thank you to RD Phill Hatty, all the volunteers and also to the Vision Money (Mortgage & Finance Brokers) for their support & awesome post event breakfast.

This weekend we have the first of our Duathlon events coming up and I know many of the bike | run specialists are looking forward to not having to start with a swim for a change.

See you there on Sunday!

11.  A number of people have asked when our next club tri gear order will be happening.  If you would be likely to order if we set one up soon, could you register an expression of interest to and include the tri items you would be interested in.  As a guide a tri top is $66, tri pants $77, trisuit $160 and delivery time 4-6 weeks from time of order.

12.  Duathlon #1 is this Sunday - enter here,  do it now and avoid that last minute entry rush and/or late entry fees.
