E News 28 June 2017


If you weren't at our Off Road Duathlon on Sunday you missed a great event at a pretty spectacular location. Running along the coast as the sun rose over the horizon was a very special moment and the mtb course was given the thumbs up.

A huge thank you to Tony Cox and Malcolm Neville for their time and effort getting this new event up and running and their course setting efforts.  The feed back was all positive and the collective call was to "bring it on" again ... soon!

Thanks also to those who helped out including: Luke Fronsko who did RD duties;  Graeme Parsons and Felicity Molan for their assistance at check in; Vicki Woodrow who covered our post race refreshments; Kevin Wells who guarded the track to ensure safety of riders and also to those who jumped in to help with our water stop and with packing up.  We would be lost without your willingness to help out, thanks again.

Looking for new experiences?  Watch this space for details of the new options available at our Long Course event scheduled for 27 August 2017.  As well as the traditional 2km swim, 60km bike, 16km run, we are including lots of different formats (many for the first time in the Territory) and there will be something for everyone including non members!   Mark your calendars.
