Adelaide, South Australia (4 March 2014) – The Adelaide World Duathlon local organising committee is pleased to announce the appointment of competition management personnel for the Adelaide 2015 ITU Duathlon World Championships from October 14-18, 2015.
Garry Muir has been appointed as the Competition Manager, supported by Andrew Bartlett as Operations Manager. Garry has extensive experience in leadership and race management, at numerous national triathlon and duathlon events over the past two decades, including International Triathlon Union events.
Andrew Bartlett has organised the Barmera Murray Man triathlon in South Australia for several years, which has been Triathlon Australia’s national Long Distance Championships, as well as state participation events.
Adelaide World Duathlon General Manager, Jenny Mann, said “I am delighted to work with Garry again, a decade after he was in charge of competition at the 2005 Duathlon World Champs in Newcastle. Garry and Andrew have undertaken a comprehensive site visit and course inspection, and we all share a common vision for next year’s World Championships”.
Competition Management will work closely with New Zealand’s ITU Technical Delegate, Ross Capill, to confirm the inner-city race course and event schedule.
