Duathlon - Saturday 21st September

The wait for the ITC race season to begin is nearly over. We'll be holding a duathlon on Saturday 21st of September at our usual venue (Port Kembla). The race will contribute towards the ITC Club Pointscore and if you're not keen to race you can still earn points by volunteering to marshall at the race. Check-in opens at 6.45am and closes at 7.30am. Race briefing is at 7.45am.

The format will be:
  • Club distance duathlon: 2.2km run, 13.2km bike, 4.4km run
  • Short club distance duathlon: 2.2km run, 8.8km bike, 2.2km run
  • A variety of distances available for juniors
Be sure to register before 8pm the night before the race.

Race Marshalling: What's involved?

Our club wouldn't run without the generous support of our members and volunteers. Marshalling a race is easy and all instructions are provided by our marshall coordinators on the day at the race venue. Marshall roles include monitoring the side road entries to the course to divert cars away from the course during races, monitoring the bike turns and transition entry and monitoring the run turns.

You'll also have the opportunity to cheer on your friends who are racing, get to meet other club members and even check out the competition for the club point score!

Remember, you have to marshall at least once during the season to qualify for the season point score. 

Plus, you'll earn 10 points towards the club season point score for every additional race that you marshall.

If you're not planning to race this month, please volunteer! For more information please contact our Marshall Coordinator Des Comer.

AGM and Run Swim Run

Thanks to all of our members who attended the ITC Annual General Meeting and Run-Swim-Run. We had a great showing for the junior races and it was an enjoyable format for our members.
The Illawarra Academy of Sport is once again running its successful Triathlon Program for the 2018/19 period. The program this year had some great success in the development of the athletes with many going on to great performances both at State and National Championships.
For more information on program specifics and what’s on offer please visit
Open water swims return in October at new earlier times. 
The countdown to the start of triathlon season has begun. Our open water swim sessions will commence again in October (after the long weekend and beginning of daylight savings time).

Our first swim session will start on Wednesday 9th of October (4.30pm for juniors and 5.30pm for adults) at our usual venue of Belmore Basin. Note that our adult sessions will be longer (you can still join us at 6pm for a shorter swim if you prefer). 

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.
