ITC Newsletter

Check out this month’s newsletter for news about the upcoming triathlon season, member news and more...

2020 - what a year hey! Bushfires, floods, US election mania, zoom calls, and a pandemic thrown in for good measure.

Thankfully, we can turn the page over on that one and move into 2021 with a little more promise - and a return to triathlon!
ITC Club Race - Sunday 24th January

Elite Energy Callala Triathlon December 2020

Great job to all of our members who headed down to Callala late last year and earning that extra serve of Xmas pavlova. For many of us it was our one and only race for 2020, and I'm sure there were more than a few feeling like it was their first triathlon all over again (don't ask James how to clip in your bike shoes correctly!).

Greeted with a stiff southerly and 3ft of groundswell and windchop, an honest bike course, and some bonus single sand track to run, it made for a solid morning out in the Bay.

Well done to all who gave it their best to round out 2020!
