North Coast Tri Club News Update

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

Here comes November! We have heaps of things happening. Max Greive Memorial Run is being held on the 9th November. Register here before hand to help out our volunteers on the day. Gold coin donations for the Cancer Council of Australia will be collected before the run, we encourage everyone participating and spectating to contribute to this worthy organisation.

We also have the annual Interclubs Sprint Race happening on the 25th of November n Mandurah. As always this event is a week out from Busselton, we understand athletes training for the big race would prefer to skip the Interclubs, but let’s look at it as transition practice and a chance to get together as a club. Even if you can’t race, we have volunteer spots available for BBQ chefs. We want to have a massive Club presence down there, this is a great event and lots of fun.

The 25th Anniversary Committee will be selling Raffle Tickets for a “Snorkel with the Sharks” at AQWA. This is a fundraising effort to subsidies the cost of putting on the celebratory event on 19th January at AQWA. There is a ‘Facebook Save the Date Event’ created on the North Coast Tri Club Facebook page, please register your interest to keep up to date on what we have in store.

Well done to all who braved the waves and finished the Aquathlon on Friday night, the chopper hovering overhead didn’t fill anyone with confidence. For some awesome photographs and video, check out the Facebook page. Thanks Tim Marsh (@focusedninjaphotography) as always and also Tom Giles (@Crank’d Media) for the video coverage.

We won!

The “Rallying of the Troops” competition for the IRONMAN TriClub Program has lead to an overwhelming victory for North Coast Tri Club. 72 of our athletes (that’s almost a quarter of our members) will be participating and now have priority bike racking at the IRONMAN event in December. Well done everyone for getting on board!

Swimming survey

A big thank you to all those who responded to our swimming survey.

We received responses from many of you – making this a valuable tool to assess our current club swim offering. The Board will discuss the results with the NCTC Swim Coaches and see if any adjustments are required based on your feedback.

Thanks again for your participation.

Volunteer Thank You

Thanks to all those who have volunteered to date at Aquathlons and for Tour de Lancelin. Another one or two people would come in handy for Max Greives, especially a turn-around marshall (2.5 km from start) and another supporter for the water stop. Please register online here or if you can’t then turn up on the day and make yourself known. We also need volunteers for upcoming BBQs for the Aquathlons, to buy/prepare the food and assist with cooking. Thanks again.

THURSDAY 1st November


Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am– 7:00am
The Hepburn Loops ride is based on laps around a 10km circuit in Hillarys. We start at Whitfords Shops (outside Celebrations) and take Whitfords Ave to Hepburn Ave, then back to Whitfords along Marmion Ave – we turn left into Banks Ave down to the roundabout and head past Bunnings and back onto Whitfords Ave – thus completing 1 loop/circuit. We ride as a bunch and try to do 3-4 loops (riders can peel off at any time as suit their needs). Ideally, the first loop is done at any easy pace and then we build the pace for each lap – the aim is to keep the pace consistent throughout the whole lap – no surging, no sprint efforts. The final lap is your fastest effort but steady the whole way. Great training for everyone.
