Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

The NCTC Aquathlon series kicks off Friday week, 14th October. This is a great opportunity to practice your open water swim skills for the coming season.  Races consist of a swim (400m to 600m) and a run from (3200m to 3400m) plus transition from beach to grass area.

The 12 races in the Aquathlon series provide a regular event for club members to get together and compete in a friendly but competitive atmosphere. It also allows non-participating members the opportunity to cheer and support fellow club members. Members of all ages and abilities can participate and it is an excellent way for newer members to get themselves introduced to other club members. We have participants from 13 years and above take part. Results are based on a handicap system with the major prize supplied by Bike Force Joondalup and awarded at the end of year presentation dinner.  The Sorrento Life Saving Club courtyard area is used for the pre-race registrations, post race announcements and presentations.

Registration generally takes place from 5.45pm with race briefings commencing at 6.05pm and racing starts at 6.15pm.
