Get inspired – winter triathlon training and race options in New South Wales

Winter training leaves many triathletes wondering what they should be doing. It’s tempting to simply retreat indoors. Turbo, treadmill and indoor pool swimming provide great training options, but they don’t compare to training or racing outdoors, coupled with the triathlon club community. 

So with a little preparation such as planning your workouts, aiming for goals across the weekend, choosing your clothing and kit to suit the environment – there’s no need to hibernate indoors this winter. Check out these great triathlon club races on offer, within NSW, which will help see you through until spring. So, get out, stay active, goal-orientated and choose the best off-season options SO THAT race results next season will be your reward.
