********January 21st special event****** On this weekend we will be running a semi Olympic distance tri with a 900m swim (two loops of the standard M course with a short Beach run to commence the second loop), a 40km bike (4 x 10km loops) & a 10km run. This will be a great event & a true hit out for those wanting to push themselves.

There will only be the short & the long course race only- unfortunately there will be no intermediate event held in January. Races will be held at approximately the same time schedule as per the race schedule below. For the long course please  be racked & ready by 6:30 at the latest for a 7am sharp start on the beach.
