Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Our last Aquathlon for the season is on this Friday.  If you haven’t given it a go, why not come down for the last one, it may even be calm!!!

The triathlon season is winding down with only a few triathlons left on the calendar (mostly all on the same day!) and of course the 70.3 in Busselton.  The roads can be wet and slippery at this time of year, take care when riding, especially down Ocean Reef and Burns Beach roads where there are road works near Swanson Way.

It’s getting a bit darker in the mornings too and soon we will be moving the Tuesday and Thursday morning rides to a 6am start.  Keep an eye on the newsletter for the dates.


Nominations for Life Members will be closing soon.  For submission details please check the Life Member Nominations page.  All submissions to be forwarded to Dave Norton via email nortondo@me.com with the subject line showing “Life Member Nominations”.


If you can volunteer for the Hillary’s Tri on 9th April, at Whitfords Nodes, please email Kim on fundraising@northcoasttriclub.org.au or via Facebook.  Volunteering helps our volunteering families with expenses heading to the School Sports competition in NSW.
