TRI ALLIANCE QUEENSLAND LAUNCH AND AMBASSADOR APPLICATIONS
So we can finalise catering arrangements for our launch, please let us know if you’re bringing partners/friends via a comment on the Tri Alliance Queensland facebook event page.
Also remember applications for the inaugural Tri Alliance Qld ambassador program close today at 5pm. We have received some great applications already and look forward to announcing the winners on Sunday.
If the program is successful then the level of prizes and sponsorship we can offer will increase in years to come. We have some great sponsors behind us who see the value in supporting age group triathletes.
Triathlon at its heart, is about the age grouper and the grass roots. We marvel and respect the ability of professional triathletes but the sport belongs to the age groupers who balance family, work and training.
In the past sponsors were only about the professionals but now they see the value an age group triathlete can give to their product. Social media and blogs give the age group triathlete a platform to let the World know how they do it.
For sponsors that means exposure to potentially, thousands. Here is a perfect chance to show what you’re about and how you get it done while receiving the support from some great sponsors.

This weekend’s training in Brisbane is a brick bike/run session from Mt. Cootha and a chance to work on the quick bike to run transitions. On the Gold Coast, the team are doing an open water swim and run from Lake Hugh Muntz.
On Sunday the long course athletes are doing a race practice session from the Valley Pool at 5.30am. It will be a 2-2.5km swim, 3-4 hr ride and 45 to 60 min run and is all about further practicing nutrition for race day.
A successful IM is all about pacing and nutrition and sessions like these help you start to know what will work for you on race day. These sessions and the long rides are crucial to getting that part of IM right.
Our beginner course are into week 2 and will be doing their first swim session this Saturday morning with Ray now that they have completed their bike maintenance session last week with Brad at Cyc’d for Bikes
Enjoy the rest of the week and we look forward to seeing everyone at the launch on Sunday.
