SPLASH WOLLONGONG  - Sunday 8th March
 
SPLASH Wollongong offers a sensational aquatic mix of swims and swim-run experiences. Little brother of the hugely popular Australia Day Aquathon, Splash is smaller but filled with the same fun factor.
 
Splash though offers a different mix of events adding the adventure style SwimrunX and Ocean and harbour swims, along with Aquathon’s.
 
Choose from a 400m, 800m or 2km Ocean Swim or the Kids, Mini or Big Aquathon!
 
Or take part in the adventure style SwimRunX. Grab a mate and take on the 6.5km multi terrain course. It is side by side the whole way… consisting of 3x swim legs and 3x run legs. Completed in teams of two whilst carrying your swim and run gear with you the whole way!
 
Splash Wollongong is held in Wollongong Harbour and North Beach on Sunday 8th March.

ITC Club Point Score Update

There's been a lot of movement on the ITC Club Point Score over the first couple of months of the year with some club regulars rocketing up the age group and overall rankings and a number starting to appear as the participation points from Aquathon and our club races roll in. The marshalling points appear to be making a difference for some of our most contested spots, but there are still a number of races left in the season for it to all change again!

Peak tri season is upon us and it's still not too late to make an attempt for our overall male and female awards or our age group awards. The next external race with participation points (10 per event) will be Big Husky coming up at the end of this month and Splash Aquathon a little later in March. With four more club races left in the season there's still everything to play for.
 
To see a full listing and stay up-to-date on the Point Score see our website.

Open Water Wednesdays

We've had some back luck recently with our open water swims being cancelled due to weather and water quality concerns. Stay tuned on our facebook page, but open water Wednesdays should return again next week (weather permitting).

Our swims run weekly (4.30pm for juniors and 5.30pm for adults) at Belmore Basin. Note that our adult sessions will be longer (you can still join us at 6pm for a shorter swim if you prefer). Sessions are led by our club coach and water safety are on site for the whole session.
Thursday Run Squad

Don’t forget club members can join our Thursday afternoon run sessions every week starting at 5pm sharp at Fairy Meadow Surf Lifesaving Car Park. Each session is a structured workout led by our club coach and the format varies each week. All abilities welcome. 

Monthly Committee Meetings


All of our members are welcome to attend our monthly committee meetings at City Beach Surf Lifesavers in Wollongong at 7pm on the first Wednesday of the month. This is an opportunity to hear what is being planned for the club and have your say in what the club should be doing. It's also a great opportunity to volunteer to help with the activities of the club.
