TRI ALLIANCE QUEENSLAND LAUNCH
Thanks to everyone that came to our launch last Sunday at the Melbourne Hotel. It was a great success and a wonderful way to officially launch Tri Alliance Qld for the coming season.
The feedback from all the sponsors was very positive and they’re all looking forward to the future.
Our inaugural Tri Alliance Ambassadors were also announced. The winners were Darrell Giles and Claire Schneider and they will receive some great support this season from Mizuno, Shoes Feet Gear and Rocket Science.
Photos from the evening thanks to Brooke Shaw will be posted on the facebook page in the coming days.

He has set pb’s in 10km, half marathon and marathon at 50 years of age to show that age is no barrier. After France it is onto his first IM at Busso in December.
