2017 Telstra Store Horsham Triathlon
The 2017 Telstra Store Horsham Triathlon will be held on Saturday 11th February. Once again it will be a twilight event, with juniors starting at 4pm and senior events starting at 5pm. The course will be the same as last years, with the swim, run and ride legs held in and along the banks of the scenic Wimmera River. There will be no senior Duathlon this year, but more categories have been added to the Long Course Teams event. More details here.
Get training and mark the date in your calendar now.
Rural Race Tri Series
We are also part of the Telstra Store/Howdy Rural Race Tri Series again this year, for more details visit the Rural Race website
is a group of Horsham based tri-athletes who enjoy training
together and travelling around the region to various triathlons.
Our aim is to challenge ourselves
in what is a very rewarding sport, but above all to enjoy
each other’s company and have fun.
At present we are not officially
a club, but work together as a group to organize and run,
with the help of many volunteers, the annual Horsham Triathlon,
which is rapidly growing in popularity.
Our vision is to increase the interest
and participation level locally, with the ultimate aim
of starting an official club.
And no, you do not need to be a super
athlete to join in. We come in all sizes, ages and abilities,
so don't feel daunted because you were born with two left
feet. With a small amount of training, anyone can complete
a Tri, and enjoy the great sense of achievement that it
brings, not to mention the physical benefits that follow.
Think you can't swim, or are a lousy
runner? Then get some friends together and form a team.
Competing with friends is a really great way to experience
a Tri, and also build closer bonds with those you share
the experience with.
Triathlons are easy to get involved in
and are open to all ages, with most events catering for
juniors and various age group categories.
By the way,
you don't need to have specialist equipment to get started
(any bike will do). In any Tri there are those more seasoned
athletes who may have all the "good" gear,
but there are also many others who do not take it so
seriously or who are having a go for the first time.
They just use whatever they have.
So come along and have a go!
