2018 NSW CLUB championships
The NSW Club Championships returns to Orange for the second successive year in 2018 following the success of last year’s event and the continued support of Orange City Council.
The annual Club Championships is one of the most keenly anticipated events of the Triathlon calendar with well over 1000 participants from over 50 clubs in NSW taking part in the day.
With club pride on the line, all the triathlon clubs in NSW will head to the beautiful country surrounds of Gosling Creek Reservoir in Orange on Saturday the 24th of March, 2018 to participate or volunteer in a triathlon consisting of a 1km swim, a 30km bike ride and an 8km run.
This event is unique in that athletes compete for their Club rather than as an individual. It rewards both participation and performance and is the highlight event in many club calendars. Every person who races or volunteers earns a point for the club and every point counts.
The course around Gosling Creek Reservoir is entirely new and has been purpose-built by the Orange Council for the event.
There will again be a Junior Club Championships for ages from 10-12 years and 13-15 years and also participation event for 7-9 year old’s. A point score will operate similar to the all age event with points awarded in each individual year age group, ie, 10yrs, 11yrs, 12yrs, 13yrs, 14yrs and 15yrs.
Preliminary details are:
➢ TRYkids (7 – 9 year old): 50m swim | 2.4km bike (2 x 1.2km small internal bike loop) | 600m run. This will be participation only, no junior club championships points.
➢ Enforcer (10 - 12 year old): 150m swim | 3.6km bike (3 x 1.2km small internal bike loop) | 1.25km run – points allocated towards Junior Club Championships Titles.
➢ Enticer (13 - 15 year olds): 300m swim | 6.6km bike (3 x 2.2km large internal bike loop) | 2.5km run - points allocated towards Junior Club Championships Titles.

The Winning Clubs will be determined by calculating the sum of all the performance points and participation points scored by members of each club.
