Numbers are looking good for our TRI FEST this weekend.
The NT Long Course Triathlon C'ship (supported by Triathlon NT) is the
feature event and currently has the most entrants.
The Short Course Triathlon is proving popular and the new events of
AquaBike, BikeRun and MTB Triathlon have also attracted interest.
We are grateful to those who have volunteered to assist at TRI FEST and it
looks like being a top day!
Good luck to all those participating on Sunday.

1. If you
are driving down on the day and not staying at the Resort please drive past
the gates and park off road on the right hand side. Please do not
park on either side of the road before the resort gates as this is part of
the bike course.
2. Remember to bring snacks, water etc. The bore water used
down there is not the tastiest. We transport water down for use on aid
stations. Please ensure you bring enough water to fill your water
bottles for the bike leg. There is a small koisk shop at the resort
with very limited stock.
3. Please note all Lake users other than competitors, are now
required to wear life jackets. There is also a $5 insurance fee
charged for Lake use. Those staying at the Resort have this covered
in their accommodation, and we will be providing a list of our competitors
and covering this on their behalf. Any other day users will need to
attend Reception and organise this individually.
4 There are various accommodation options (including camping, dorm,
and resort rooms) available at Lake Bennett
Resort if you are wanting to stay down and
enjoy the tranquility. Let them know you are coming for the triathlon
and want the triathlon rate.
1. Congrats to Kia
King, winner of Stage 5 of the Mongolia Bike Challenge.
2. Congrats to Kyle
