A huge thank you to all the athletes, officials, marshals and spectators on a small but successful Henley on Mersey Armstrong Insurance State Series race 3 today. We were very disappointed to have to change the swim leg to a run die to water quality but these things are outside our control. At least the air was clear today.
Congratulations to Gabe Dennison 1st Male and Inighion Quinn 1st Female in the feature Sprint race.
On the back of last weekend's Women Only Triathlon at Stanley where over 120 women of all ages and abilities completed the inaugural Circular Head Women's TRY-athlon - for most it was their first triathlon.
This Sunday we are at Penguin mountain bike circuit for our first ever X-Duathlon - come along and have some fun!
Sunday 13th December we are at Bell's Parade Latrobe for a club DUATHLON (was Triathlon but water quality is doubtful unfortunately) - see the events page
This Sunday (15th) sees the running of the inaugural Women's TRY-athlon and Fun Run at Stanley. This event is the initiative of a great group of women from the Circular Head area who want to make a difference in their community.
Over 80 women will hit the chilly waters off Tatlow's Beach on Sunday afternoon and will be started by CCTM member and Triathlon legend, Doris Truman.
CCTM has joined with Cradle Coast Sports & Events and Triathlon Tasmania to lend our support to this great event. Tracy Doherty will be Race Director and Steve Quinn will look after the Technical team with support from LTC members.
We will be setting up from about 11 AM with the race due to start at 2 PM if anyone is heading that end of the coast any assistance would be appreciated.
Triathlon Tasmania is offering to run a refresher/update for current technical officials followed by an introductory Level 1 (LTO) technical official course NEXT Sunday (16th) in Launceston at the Inveresk City Campus building (next to Blue Cafe) . 10:30 – 11:00 for the refresher then 11:00 – 3:00 for the Level 1 course.
Course if free and TO's may have their TA membership paid the following year if they keep up their accreditation. The course is not difficult but there are a couple of follow-up requirements (field-of-play assessment and an on-line component). Please contact Steve (0427 279 649) if you are interested.
