North Coast Tri Club News Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

Firstly! Big congratulations to Alan Hartley and Brad Kaye, both members reaching legend status on the weekend. Alan completed his second Kona World Champs Ironman race and Brad his first. Judging by all the commentary and race records broken, it must have been perfect conditions for the iconic race. A lot of North Coasters were up early Sunday morning tuning in to history being made. A good boost to the mental prep for all our members doing the Ironman in Busselton no doubt.

If you couldn’t make the Season Opener, you did miss out on some good fun. Great turn out and the take home message from Club President Milou Smeets, was to reach out and be the person who looks out for fellow members, we are inclusive, we are welcoming and we are supportive.

Members were treated to a “25 year anniversary Buff” and a big announcement. The 25 year Anniversary Committee confirmed the 19th of January as the date for a celebratory event at AQWA. To help subsidise costs for the event we raffled off a “Dive with the Sharks” pass on Sunday at the Season Opener. The lucky winner Ayesha Scott has the option of diving on the evening of our AQWA event, while the guests look on and enjoy canapés.


Don’t worry if you missed out, because we have another dive pass to raffle. Details will be coming out shortly so keep your ears to the ground!

So many events this weekend! Aquathlons kick off on Friday evening at SSLC, the Rottnest Running Festival is on Sunday and back in Perth we have the State Duathlon Championship at a new venue the Perth Motorplex Kwinana. Click here to register.


Have a fun week of training everyone!
