UncategorizedBring On Summer

September 26, 2022by admin


Welcome to your monthly newsletter.

I cannot wait for the warm weather to return and with it plenty of swim, bike & run over Summer. Keep an eye out for the HTC season launch to coincide with the first 2XU race in Elwood on 27 November. Come and join your friends whether you are racing or not for an afternoon of bacon & egg rolls, banter and fun!

Special mention to David Izzard who hosted 25 of his nearest & dearest HTC friends for a bbq over the long weekend after most attendees enjoyed a public holiday ride over the Dandenongs.




Also this Friday 30 September, come and help celebrate the success & farewell several of your Club members as they prepare to compete overseas:
Nickie Scriven: Kona
Daniel Reardon: Kona
Alex Cullen: World Triathlon Championships Dubai
Peter Kormendy: World 70.3 Utah
And welcome back Deb & Dave Friedlander from the World Sprint triathlon championships in Montreal in June.
The venue is the Nevermind Bar in Hawthorn from 7pm.



Huge kudos to returning Club member Darren Cronshaw, who was recently crowned Victorian Duathlon Champion at race 3 of the Victorian Duathlon Series.

As a reminder the Club is in the process of streamlining communication with the HTC Community:

  • The newsletter now comes out each month to provide the entire community (past & present members) updates and FOMO.
  • Instagram is now sharing real-time photos of training, racing and club members out & about doing what we love. Please tag #hawthorntriclub on your posts so we can reshare. Instagram feeds directly to the Club’s new & improved website.
  • The Facebook group will be limited to current members where we will continue to advertise official and ad-hoc training and club events.
