QTS RABY BAY
This weekend is the last race of the Qld Tri Series at Raby Bay. We have a Try the Tri course finishing their 6 week program and will be putting on a BBQ to celebrate. Like we did for the December QTS race we’ll be doing a Tri Alliance mates wave.
The mates wave was great fun last time and a perfect way to welcome another group of new people into the squad.
Entries to the race are almost sold out. Remember Tri Alliance members get a discount on race entry when using the code provided. Online entries close today at 6:00pm.
Our final beginner course for this season starts on March 4th and will finish with the Luke Harrop race on April 13th. Go to http://qld.tri-alliance.com.au/summer-try-the-tri-program/ if you know anyone that is interested in getting into the sport.
Due to the popularity of the swim sessions on Monday nights we are now taking bookings to limit the numbers in the pool. You can book your spot in the session through the booking app on our Facebook page or the Events page of the website.
If you need to cancel your booking their is a link provided in the confirmation email.
