In line with recent developments in the Covid 19 pandemic, Triathlon WA has advised all triathlon events statewide are no longer sanctioned in an effort to mitigate the spread of the virus.
This decision is 100% supported by the Albany triathlon club and the final club tri event of the season planned for whalers cove will as such be cancelled. It is a shame being that it was to be the first different course in a while but member and participant safety is the number one priority.
For all those competing in the upcoming Albany Sprint Triathlon or Duathlon on Sunday 1st March, the competitor information pack is available for download at the link below. The pack includes registration and check in details as well as maps and directions for each leg of the events.
There will also be a post event windup at 6 degrees starting from 3PM on race day where you can come down, enjoy a drink (hopefully shouted for you by a lucky spot prize winner) and give your fellow competitors a bit of stick for all the drafting they did off you.
It has been confirmed that the Final Club Tri event of the season held on the 29th of March will be at Whalers cove and not the usual Emu Point course.
For those who want to challenge themselves on offer will be a classic distance triathlon ( 1250m swim, 30km ride, 8km run) as well as the usual Sprint distance.
The Club is trying to get some alternate courses into the mix for a change of scenery (and competitor tactics) so please come down to support this fantastic initiative.
A BBQ will be held after the event so bring the family, enjoy fresh scenery and get some delicious sausage nutrition into our weary competitors.
