Size chart:
6.  Check our Facebook page for athlete results from various events since last E News.

7.  Reminder re timing chips:  new members are issued with their timing chip free of charge & collect & sign for at their first event.

8.  If you lose/misplace your issued timing chip please purchase a replacement chip ($15) when entering your next event.

9.  It's your responsibility to bring your timing chip.  Issuing a temporary chip takes time & makes results harder to collate and if the numbers turning up events sans chips continues to increase, we will have to revert back to our "no chip, no time" rule. Thanks for your understanding.

10.  Parents of juniors, we have a number of kids tri tops and tri shorts available.  Your NT Sports Vouchers can be used for these.


Our new club trailer has arrived thanks to funding received
