The end of season for many means a time to reflect on last season, reset the goals for next season and start to plan which events are the focus for the next season!
The good news is that season 2022/2023 is shaping up to be COVID free with regional and interstate travel well and truly back on the cards.
Triathlon Australia / NSW members will once again have access to another bumper calendar of events across this great state of ours.
