Busso 70.3 Wrap - What a Weekend!
We trained hard, we raced hard but more importantly we had a great time!
Thank you to the hard work of our coaches Anne, Nicole and Birdy. You provided us with a great program and the support on race day was incredible.
Huge shout out to our super Busso heroes Louise, Birdy and Anne. You guys are an incredible team! Thank you for all your support on the day and preparation beforehand. We had the best tent with the best support on club alley, hands down!

GO Membership - The New Membership Platform from Triathlon Australia
Membership renewal for 2021/2022 season will see the implementation of the Go Membership platform. Triathlon Australia has introduced this new platform to help clubs simplify and streamline their membership database.
What does this mean for our club and you, our members?
Not much will change for our members. You will be required to renew your membership during June. Those relying on auto renew will need to update their details for the new system. We will alert members via Facebook when it's time to renew. We want to make it as easy as possible!
