    • Hi Danny – there’s a form to complete for the tri on the website. If you get it completed and printed off, and let any of the club’s committee members have the entry fee that’ll get you a place!

  2. Hi Wayne, just wondered if it was possible to see the Try a Tri results on here from June 22nd, hoping to compare against the one being held on Sunday so I can see if I am improving at all, Cheers Paul.
