Welcome to Club Champs Week!
We’re almost there, under 5 days from Triathlon NSW Club Champs on Sat 24 Mar! With a final flurry today, the Piranha squad for Gosling Creek is now at 72 for Saturday’s events, with our team spread roughly half between Junior and Senior events.

A big thanks to our shirt sponsors – you’ll see who they are on the weekend, and think of them when you support local businesses who support us. A big word up to Mick Lockyer and Phil Tudor who have worked hard with council and 100% Events out at Goz to prepare for a great day.
Thanks, Dave Hunter
