Triathlon South Australia has considered its position around sending a team to Round 1 of the National Junior Series as has been standard practice since 2014 within the context of safety and COVID-19.
Triathlon SA has determined that in light of ongoing infection risks, we will not be sending a team to the Super Sprint Race Weekend, held on the weekend of December 13. Should parents and athletes still wish to enter this event, they are free to do so as per the nomination procedure which will be communicated in the coming weeks by Triathlon Australia.
In an effort to maximise draft legal racing opportunities at home, Triathlon SA has commenced discussions with the organisers of the Moana Triathlon to host high quality draft legal racing opportunities for those who choose not to attend runaway bay this year. In addition to this, Triathlon SA is looking at other dates in early 2021 for more draft legal racing in line with Triathlon Australia's strategic direction towards more at-home, in-state draft legal racing opportunities.
