TriSport Epping dominated the prizes, taking home three of the four prizes, but it was newcomer Jake Callis of Yonda Racing who stole the show…. Read more »

With temperatures of 25 degrees Celsius, thirty seven athletes (including two relay teams) completed the third race in our midweek aquathlon series.   Water temperature was a fraction lower than last month’s race, and critically below the BTF threshold of 22 deg which forbids the use of wetsuits to prevent overheating.    As a result of being able to use… Read more »

Thanks to all those who attended our third aquathlon of 2014 last night. The recent warm temperatures saw several people shed their wetsuits and swim ‘skins’; several others wished they had. The run route stuck to the northern side of the river, as vegetation was too thick to use the loop on the far side. Thirty-two competitors in total. Well… Read more »

Well, that’s the 2013 Aquathlon series complete for another year.  It had to happen sooner or later but the inclement weather did not deter those that braved the elements … in fact some people seem to relish the damp and soggy conditions. Some ‘thanks’: A big thank you to everyone that competed both tonight and throughout the season. Without you… Read more »

The fourth in the mid-week Aquathlon series is now behind us. The numbers were down on previous races but still there was some close competition. The first 4 senior ladies separated by 80 seconds and the top 3 senior men within a minute of each other. The cheers from supporters did well to disguise the fact that there were fewer… Read more »

Well there was certainly a great turn out on Tuesday for the third in this year’s series of the mid-week aquathlons. Last month we saw a record number of people participate and attributed it to the fantastic weather we were experiencing. Could the persistent warm weather have been a factor in the 30% increase in entries this month!  Hopefully it… Read more »
