Exciting News!!

A few balance members have kindly opened up a training weekend based in Jamberoo in January. The training weekend is aimed at those who are gearing up for long course races, cycle endurance races and those who just want to tackle some big hills. The training weekend is being organised by Joe McNamara, and has been brought closer to Sydney to make it more accessible for members. The overall plan is to travel down on the morning of Thursday 26th (public holiday) and return on the afternoon of Sunday 29th Jan. Accommodation is provided at the Jamberoo Resort (406 Jamberoo Mountain Rd, Jamberoo NSW 2533) with a cost of $399 p/person twin share and $589 for a single room. This includes buffet breakfast, 3 course dinner, board and use of the 25m swimming pool (note lunch not included)

Anybody is welcome to join in, but if you expect you’ll be riding much slower than others and/or don’t think you can complete the full distances, please bring a buddy or two with you for safety and company. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Joe McNamara jmcnamara@fairfaxmedia.com.au / 0418 288 454

NOTE – all people who will be training with the group must be Triathlon NSW members.
