TRY THE TRI COURSE – LUKE HARROP TRIATHLON
At the recent Luke Harrop Triathlon we had 28 people complete their first triathlon at the end of their 6 week Try the Tri course.
Along with many of the current squad members racing it was a great day out that finished with a bbq and drinks at the tent after the race. Additionally $12,000 was raised for Smile for Smiddy with their team also competing their first triathlon after finishing the course.
That course was the last for the 2013/14 season. The next course will be later this year leading into the first QTS race in October.
We would like to congratulate the participants from the course for completing it and welcome them into the squad. When you see them at training be sure to say hello and make them feel welcome, we were all beginners at one stage.

The Finishers Movie
On Sunday 18th May at 3:00pm, the Smiddy Challenge riders are holding a movie event at The Palace Cinemas, to watch an inspiring movie for all triathletes called ‘The Finishers’. If you haven’t already seen the trailer for this movie, it’s a must watch! Set on the Ironman Course in Nice, a wheelchair bound son with cerebral palsy challenges his father to participate with him in an Ironman event. An Ironman is tough enough, but it becomes nearly impossible if one has to help a disabled youth throughout the course.
The characters are inspired by the true story of father and son duo Rick and Dick Hoyt. Their story is awe inspiring and you can learn more about their journey by visiting the Team Hoyt website: http://www.teamhoyt.com/
