Duathlon - Sunday 6th October

Missed out on our September Duathlon? Eager to blow out the cobwebs before tri-season really kicks off? We'll be holding a duathlon on Sunday 6th October 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.

*The race will start 30 minutes earlier than usual (at 7.30am) to allow for a junior draft legal event running straight after our club race.*

Kids: Check-in opens 6.30am and closes 6.45am. Race briefing at 6.45am. Race starts at 7am sharp.

Adults: Check-in opens at 6.45am and closes at 7.15am. Race briefing is at 7.15am. Race starts at 7.30am.

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.

Daylight Savings Reminder

Don't forget the clocks change on Sunday, which means getting up an hour early to be on time for the race.

Register to Marshal our next race

We need extra marshals this month to cover both our club race and the junior draft legal race. 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 can also help set up or pack down the transition and finish line.

Remember, you have to marshal 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 marshal.

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

We need extra Marshals for our October race to assist with the junior draft legal race. You can still race our regular club race and marshal the junior race afterwards to earn points in our club Point Score. 
Sign up to Marshall
Draft-legal Junior Development Race

Stick around after our next club race to watch the Triathlon NSW Junior Development triathletes race in 2 Super Sprint draft-legal format races on our usual club triathlon course. This is a great opportunity to watch some of the talented up-and-coming juniors and future national champs.

We we also need additional marshals for this race, so consider signing up to help. You can still race in our club duathlon.

Ordered a uniform? Get in touch...

If you ordered a uniform at the end of last season and have not yet picked it up contact Club President Jye Cajar or pick it up at the next club race (Sunday 6th October).

September Duathlon

ITC club members and guests had a great hit out at our first race of the season in September. There was great turnout for both the kids' and adults' races and conditions were mostly kind (although the wind picked up a bit in the adults race). 

ITC Club Point Score Update

September saw our first club race of the season and the first race eligible for club members to earn points towards our annual Point Score.

The duathlon had a great turnout with 20 racing in the club distance. The wind picked up during the adult race making the downhill a little more challenging than usual and testing athletes on their pacing across the 6 lap bike course.

Our marshals on the day also earned valuable points, which will give them a head start once the season gets underway.
To see a full listing and stay up-to-date on the Point Score see our website.
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.
