What’s on Guide

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News, Social

November re-cap

So November was a busy month with quite a few events going on around Perth.  For most of us this marked the start of our triathlon season after the October duathlon races.  Perhaps the four stand-out races for NCTC members were:

  • Augusta Adventure Race – certainly had a few muddy NCTC crew posting on Facebook of their exploits down in Augusta on this really enjoyable, and extremely challenging, multisport event. Combining trail/beach running, kayaking, mountain-biking and open water swimming, this is a proper challenge for sure!  Well done to all from the club who took part.
  • Exceed Super Sprint – We’d a few impressive results at this one which is especially impressive since it’s a new format for most, if not all, of the NCTC’ers who took part. The cycles were draft legal which is a pleasant change from the normal isolation of non-drafting races.  Congrats to our podium placers and indeed everyone who took part.
  • Next up was the Rottnest Island Sufferfest…and with the weather proving stifling hot it certainly was a sufferfest! We had a small crew from NCTC make the ferry ride over to contest, some using it as a preparation for Busso.  Good work guys!
  • Mandurah State Interclub Championships – Well, what to say…you guys rock! Huge turnout from the club but more importantly there were countless stories of camaraderie and support between club members all throughout the day, which is what it’s all about.  For a lot of the WIT ladies this was their first event…go you!  And to top it off NCTC managed to claim second overall which is a huge result given the ranking system makes it difficult for large clubs to excel.  Great work to everyone involved, and I hear the BBQ was the envy of all other clubs!

Also in November, we had a couple of club events which included round 3 (race 2 since the first one was cancelled due to weather) of the Aquathlon series and the ever-enjoyable Max Grieve Memorial Run.

For the Aquathlon, Rahul Jegatheva was once again unstoppable and took out overall honours plus the Male Junior division.  In the females, Madison Toovey took the win, also winning the female juniors.  In the seniors, it was Morgan Marsh as leading female with Phil Corrick grabbing the male senior win.  Congrats to everyone who took part and see you at the next round!

For the Max Grieve, we had a really great turnout for this season favourite – 70 runners in total with 23 doing the 5 km and 47 doing the 10 km.  The 10 km was a really tight affair between 3 very strong runners, with Kurt Wesley taking out the win overall.  Madison Toovey won the females and was a very impressive 4th overall behind the leading trio!  In the 5 km, Rahul Jegatheva won overall with Ayesha Scott the leading female.  Congrats to everyone and see you on the start line in 12 months to do it all again!

December Events

December is definitely a quieter month than November in terms of events, but certainly it’s one most of us will have been looking forward to because of two weekends in particular, Ironman Western Australia and Ironman 70.3 Western Australia on 3rd December (with associated Ironkids events), and the State Sprint Distance Championships at Hilary’s on 17th December.

Ironman Western Australia and Ironman 70.3 Western Australia – Busselton – 3/12/17 – For those taking part, this marks the finale of month after month of effort to get in prime condition for the challenge of a lifetime.  Conditions are looking hot but not too windy, and those taking part will be well into their tapers by now.  We have a huge entry from the club in both events, so plenty of action to cheer on!  We’ll have the club tent down there and the BBQ on the go, and the theme for our supporters is ‘Where’s Wally’ – so dig out your red and white stripes and give our crew the best support you can.  Well done to everyone competing for just getting this far, the effort has been immense.

SunSmart TriSeries Race 1 – Hilary’s – 17/12/17 – This is the first round of the Tri Series, and is also the state sprint distance championships.  With the world sprint championships in Queensland next year, the competition will be fierce to try and qualify for the World’s.  It’s right on our doorstep, and involves a 750 m swim, 20 km bike and 5 km run.  Entries are still open and if you’re not planning on racing then please do come down and support the NCTC’ers taking part.

Rounds 4 and 5 of the Aquathlon Series – Sorrento SLSC –8/12/2017 and 22/12/17 – PIZZA!  That’s all I have to say…  The event on 22nd will be our annual pizza night which has got to be all the reason you need to join in.  And if you need another excuse, by taking part you are basically getting a free pass to the extra piece of Christmas dinner 3 days later, cos, you know, you earned it!  If you haven’t already done so, please enter your details on Webscorer which makes the whole evening go a lot smoother.  The format is as per normal, a short swim (400-600 m typically) followed by a short run (just over 3km usually).  It’s a laid-back, relaxed evening…a great way to round out your week!

Joondalup Loop Anti

Thursday Morning Ride Change

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

With the on-going road works on West Coast Drive near Pinarroo it is worth making a few temporary adjustments to avoid this area. So for tomorrow we will try to good old Joondalup Loop ride that we used to do every second Thursday. Full details for this ride are published here – Ride Joondalup Loop Anticlockwise. It is a great ride with some challenging sections, a number of stops due to lights etc but is certainly a lot better than dealing with the road works and will provide a change. Looking forward to seeing you all at Celebrations Bottle Shop for a 6AM departure tomorrow.
