Mid Summer Carnival 2018

For the first time the Yarra Tri Club will be hosting a stall at the Midsumma Carnival on Sunday 14 January 2018 at Alexandra Gardens.

We believe that sport and triathlon should be accepting and inclusive for all members of the community, and we will be sharing our stories and passion for triathlon and multisport with the LGBTIQ community at Midsumma.

We would greatly appreciate members of the Yarra Tri Club to volunteer a short amount of their time to represent our friendly club and talk to people that have any questions about our club and the sport. There’s plenty of time to come and help after the race in St Kilda that morning.

 

Details of the Midsumma Carnival are:

Date: Sunday 14 January 2018

Time: 11:00am to 3:00pm

Location: Alexandra Gardens

 

Yarra Tri Club will also be participating in the Midsumma Pride March for the first time on Sunday 28 January 2018 in St Kilda.

The Pride March includes organisations, groups and clubs from all backgrounds, including plenty of other sporting clubs, however we could be the first Triathlon club to participate in this great event and we want to be loud and proud to stand out! Remember, you don’t need to be LGBTIQ to show your support and get involved.

We encourage as many club members, family and friends to come along and be a part of the march or just show some support from the sidelines to watch the Pride March.

 

Details of the Midsumma Pride March are:

Date: Sunday 28 January 2018

Start time: 2:00pm

Location: Fitzroy Street, St Kilda

 

If you would like to help out at the Midsumma Carnival or participate in the Pride March, please contact Hugh Allen at rhallen@bigpond.com

YarraTri Duathlon Championships

With less races in the Victorian Duathlon Series this season we have expanded the range of our club championships so more people can take part, whilst still recognising the races with tougher fields
For the 2017 Championships your championships position will be decided by your best three races as usual
They can be from any duathlon including off road from 1st July onwards until 1st October
To recognise stronger fields there will be 50 bonus points per race at the Victorian Duathlon series, National Selection races and World Championships
The 50 point bonus for racing in club uniform will also continue as usual.
