Tannum Timetable (and other bits)

Hello Participants (including those yet to register)

Below is the event timetable for our season finale at Tannum Sands on the 4th May.

I know this is a bit “formal” but the “brains trust” consulted in preparation for this event have indicated that our local events should have an “Event Feel”, helping people experience triathlon in the broad sense.

Where participant numbers are particularly low in any wave, they may be incorporated with another wave at approximately the same time (exact timing will be confirmed at race brief).

A significant point to note is that we will be closing transition at 6:40 am. Please be sure that your bike is racked and your transition gear is at the ready. If you are not ready by 6:40, you will be asked to clear the area and you can fix the problem during transition.

All Triathlon and Duathlon participants must also attend the race brief.

If you need advice or instruction, please don’t hesitate to ask one of the Frogs–in-vests. Their job is to look out for you and help you enjoy the occasion.

6:40                Transition close

Other points of interest:

Wetsuits will be optional

Water temperature is expected to be higher than 22°C, which according to Triathlon Australia rules, would prohibit wetsuits. However we know that some of you may be looking for a wetsuit swim in preparation for other events (and some of you may just be soft and need the comfort of a wetsuit).

Enjoyment is Mandatory

 

If you have any questions, please post a comment or send us a message on our Facebook page and we will get to you as soon as we can.

Season Finale. Tannum Sands, 7th of May 2017

It is always sad to see the end of a tri season, so this year the Frenchville Frogs Triathlon Club has decided to extend it into May with a Season Finale at the beautiful Tannum Sands.

Apart from the fantastic course, a feature of Tannum is that it attracts a broad field (geographically speaking). This gives us a chance to catch up with a few more distant friends, look back on the season (with some embellishment), but better still …. we get to look ahead.

Tannum will feature Triathlon, Duathlon and Run Only events in our usual social, non-competitive spirit. So please mark 7th May in the calendar, register and keep that training going a little longer.

As the sun sets on the 2016/17 season, please do come along and celebrate the occasion with the Frenchville Frogs Triathlon Club. And dont forget to tell family and friends, all are very much welcome.

On-line registrations are now open at www.frogstri.net

See you at Tannum.

Race 1 – 2016/2017 Season

Greetings everyone!

First of all, apologies that it has taken so long to get this race season off the ground. As you may or may not be aware, our long time benefactor Capricorn Resort has suspended much of it’s operations in anticipation of a large redevelopment. To that end, we have been busy negotiating with them to try and retain what could be arguably be one of the the best race locations in the region. We have only recently come to an agreement, and we are very grateful for the resort’s continued support of our club.

This year’s race season will be known as Tsuruya Japanese Restaurant race season in reflection of the many years of support from Capricorn Resort.

The first race of this season will be held on the 13th of November, 2016

Transition and registration will open at 6:00am and we are aiming for a 7:00am start.

The events that we will be running will be:

Sprint (Long Course) Triathlon: 750m Swim/24km Ride/5km Run (Individual / Team)
Enticer (Short Course) Triathlon: 375m Swim/14km Ride/2km Run (Individual / Team)
Sprint (Long Course) Duathlon: 5km Run/24km Ride/2km Run (Individual / Team)
Enticer (Short Course) Duathlon: 2km Run/14km Ride/1km Run (Individual / Team)
5km Run (Individual)

(Please note that I have started to use the Triathlon Australia “standard” names for the lengths of the various events)

Entry fees for all individual events is $20 (paid on the day) and fees for team events are $10 (per person, paid on the day). If you make a family day of it, all of your entries will cost you no more than $40. Please note that we take your Frenchville Sports Club membership fees from your first race’s fee so you don’t need to bring any more money for that.

Registrations are now open and can be completed at the Online Entry page. Online entries will be open until 5:00pm, 12th November 2016. We will be accepting new registrations on the day from 6:00am, but it would be appreciated if you could use the online entry facillities as it makes things run much smoother on the day. (Please note that registering is not a commitment to race – it just makes sure that all of your details are already in the system. You registration is confirmed by payment on the day).

A point to note is that if you are entering a team, all members of the team must register separately, but nominate a team event and enter the same team name.

As this is the first race of the season, everyone will also need to fill out club registration and waiver forms. This can be found of the Club page of the web site. If you can fill out both pages of the form and bring it with you, this will make things run smoother. If you forget, dont’t worry! We will have forms available on the day. Note that we cannot accept your entry without a filled out membership / waiver form.

This race will also act as one of the two Capricornia Schools Triathlon team selection races. If this applies to you, please ensure that you follow the directions that have been sent to you by your school. (i.e. You are responsible for the entry of the student into this event)

If you are new to triathlon / duathlon and would like to give it a try, we would like to you. We are a friendly club that promotes physicall activity and participation over results. The first thing we would like to point out is the “Race Competition Rules” which are the rules on which our sport runs. Here is a web page that gives some more information for those new to triathlon / duathlon. A great way to start is to form a team with some friends and start with only one leg of the race!

Again, thanks for your patience and hope to see you on the 13th 🙂

Brett
