We have Champions, Podiums, Personal bests and Finishers! Congratulations too all Ballina Triathlon Club members who competed over the weekend.

Hell of the West, Gundiwindi – Australian Long Course Championship.

It is one of Australia’s toughest & most challenging races. Not for the faint hearted it is a 2 km swim, 80 km bike, 20 km run in the murky waters of the Macintyre River and the blazing heat of the Goondiwindi summer!

Congratulations to Tim Reed on taking continued good form into 2017 and adding yet another Championship to his already impressive list of career titles.

Similarly, to Wes Thompson adding an Age Group Championship to his list of titles. Read More »
