Woolongong Tri - 18 March

Recommended Posts

The Gong Standard is an ITU qualifier this year. The whole festival is on the 17 and 18 March. I will be there after my TdC ride.

I have been told by a local guy that the path along the beach is closed due to council works. Not too sure if will be open or not by race date. It not, it may be a run (twice) up the Novatel hill. Will be an interesting race if this is the case.

The path between North Beach and the Harbour will be closed for another 12 months. You'll be doing the hill for sure.

The map is up. Looks like we run towards the lighthouse then south - two laps.

I’m in for the sprint. Both the standard and the sprint have 3 laps for the bike. Seems odd for the sprint as it could easily be held on two laps - less congested and less times up THAT hill, lol.

What a waste of cycling the last 2 months. I did  my back in 2 days ago. Helping someone Out by cleaning their backyard and moved something heavy.  I am out of the Gong. Hopefully Port is still on the horizon.Gutted.
