E NEWS 19 MAY 2016


This is a quick E News mainly to convey a few extra details regarding our Kerran Mudgway Memorial Club Championship taking place this Saturday afternoon.

If you haven’t done this event before, we hope you are ready for a real Territory triathlon experience.  Lake Bennett is a must do race on our calendar and the location and late afternoon start time ensures we will have a very different swim, bike, run experience to that of our usual events.

It’s our big club event of the year and will be great to see you all there.  With the Championship distance and a short option on offer there is something for everyone.  Teams are welcome over both distances.

As it is expected to be the usual warm conditions at Lake Bennett, please ensure you have at least 2 (two) full water bottles on your bike for the bike leg (and don’t forget to drink).

The usual water station at start/finish area will be in place.

Please note:  No outside assistance is allowed (ie your supporters are not allowed to hand you water bottles etc on either the bike or run course).

We look forward to seeing you all at Lake Bennett at the weekend.

Don’t forget to allow extra travel time and to check that you have all your gear before leaving – it’s too far to drive back if you have forgotten your cycle shoes or some other vital piece of equipment (don’t laugh, it has happened more than once)!
