Triathlon Race 6 Results and Congratulations

Congratulations and well done to all club members who raced last weekend. Some members raced the Ironman 70.3 in Geelong, others took on the Huskisson Tri yet some others had a crack in our local Club, Sprint and Enticer races at Prospect Lake. Conditions where near perfect for Sundays club race with good water temperature, mild winds and not too hot on the run. Thanks to all who turned up volunteered and raced!

I apologise for the late posting of results which was due to a Server Database issue which has now been rectified. Hoping for a big turnout at this Fridays Aquathlon. See you there and Happy Training :>

Triathlon Race 6 and Tweed Enduro

Congratulations and well done to all club members who competed at the Tweed Enduro and Sprint Triathlon at Pottsville on Saturday morning. It certainly felt like an endurance race when the temperature soared on the second of three run laps. There where several first timers at the Half Ironman 70.3 distance, many surprising themselves with their results and quite a few club podiums with Shane Flannery taking out age group 1st, Wes Thompson taking his age group 2nd, Leonie Pedrazzini age group 2nd and Millie Cooke age group 1st. Also a big Congratulations to Byron Bay local Matt (Slayer) Slee on successfully defending his title and taking out First place overall.

Club Triathlon Race 6 is being held this Sunday the 18th February with Enticer, Sprint and Club distance races at Prospect lake. Registration from 5:30 ish and online entries are now also open (through Racing tab) if you want to get it out of the way beforehand. Hope to see you all there!!

Happy Training :>

Andrew Frame Memorial Run Proceeds and Update

Hi all. Just before Christmas the committee made the decision to donate the proceeds of the “Andrew Scott Frame memorial run” to the “Ballina Lighthouse & Lismore Surf Life Saving Club”. I met with the president of the BLLSLSC, Mario Van Eck (Pictured) to make the donation. Mario was most grateful of the $900 which will be used to update and purchase essential life-saving equipment. These guys have agreed to help us out in the future when we need water safety ! Many thanks to all those who took part in helping to raise these funds.

Also, I have to apologise for the lack of results from Sundays Race. There is another issue with the Timing box which we are looking into. We are still hoping to be able to retrieve the results! Your patience and continued support is appreciated. Friday Swim-Run as usual this week. Hope to see you there.

Regards

John

Weekend Triathlon Update

Congratulations and well done to all Club members who raced this weekend at Ironman  Western Australia and Kingscliff Triathlon. A few club members were faced with extra challenges this year at Busselton when Shark sightings forced a swim cancellation, turning the event into a Duathlon. Then reportedly there was a bushfire and extreme heat to overcome on the 180 km bike leg. As usual our club members soldiered on and finished in the true spirit of Triathlon! Great job!!

At Kingscliff Tri there was a record turnout of BTC club members with about 20-30 competing across events. A few podiums taken out, PB’s broken and First time completion’s (Photos on Facebook soon!) where had by members. Well done BTC!!

In regard to results for Swim Run 6 on Friday, there was an issue with our timing this week and unfortunately times where not recorded so No results this week. (However, we know who raced and will award points accordingly to club members).  This will be rectified for this coming weeks swim run!

Lastly, just a reminder we have Triathlon Race 4 on this coming Sunday the 10th December. On-line entries are now open or come along and register on the morning for a fun hit out!

Cheers
