Triathlete sights on Byron Bay
CLARENCE Valley triathlon Club held its penultimate session of the season last week, with only club championships yet to be held.
Some members were out for longer distances as a last hit-out before Byron Bay Tri, leaving the senior field largely to the visitors.
Juniors again outnumbered seniors, and it appeared that the visitors almost outnumbered the locals. The weather threatened showers but the rain managed to hold off until after the event, so all finished relatively dry.
As the next meet is due on Sunday and clashes with the Tour De Woodford bike ride, it has been decided to cancel, so all can participate in the ride.
Junior championships which were to be held that day will be bought forward to Saturday afternoon, and senior champs the next fortnight, on May 15.
The junior members' championships will be held on Saturday.
As usual others who wish to participate are welcome, but only regular members will be eligible for championship status.
Distances will be in three age divisions: Under 8:100m swim, 2km bike ride, 1 km run. 8-11: 200m swim, 8km bike ride, 2 km run. 11-15: 300m swim, 10km bike ride, 3 km run.
Starting time 2.30pm at the pool.
A sausage sizzle will be provided by the club following the event.
Senior championships will be held at the normal starting time of 7.30am on Sunday, May 15.
This will be a handicapped event based on your best time for the season, over our standard distance of 400m swim, 20km bike and 5 km run.
For those training for longer distances it is requested that for this day these distances be incorporated into your training schedule.
A social breakfast at the Yamba Street Cafe will follow. Inquiries can be made to Kim on 6645 3157, or Regan on 0407 516 072.
