✔️ 'Double Prize Chance' for all Race Volunteers
The Hills Triathlon Club (HTC) is pleased to announce several exciting upgrades to their 2017 racing season.
Firstly, they welcome a new major naming rights sponsor, Garmin Australia.
Garmin are a World Leader in personal GPS equipment and sponsor some massive names in sport such as the Cannondale-Garmin Cycle team in TDF and Middlesbrough Football Club in the English Premier League.
Now for the first time, they are getting involved in the grass roots level of a sport and have chosen HTC as their partner. As naming rights sponsor, the series is now branded the GARMIN TRI SERIES.
As part of their sponsorship package, athletes and volunteers can expect to see some pretty cool Garmin multisport watches added to our lucky prize draw this season.
In other exciting news, HTC have enlisted local sports photography talent whom will be snapping hundreds of pics at each of the Garmin Tri Series Races.
These images will be shared with all racing competitors, even non HTC members can access their pics.
President Tommy Morwood says: “The Garmin Tri Series is especially welcoming for beginners thanks to the closed course, and straight line swim, although we still get lots of faster athletes as well for those who are keen for some friendly rivalry and want to push harder!”
At the Garmin Tri Series there are no medals for being first to finish, events are all about PB's and racing your friends.
At the end of each race HTC give away prizes worth thousands thanks to their amazing race sponsors; Running Science, Gamin Australia, #granola bags, Active Body Physio Massage Vouchers, Nutrition Strategy Consultations with Bites Health Clinic, and Trek Bike gear like helmets, bike shoes.
All race entrants have equal chance to pick up these prizes, and all volunteers get DOUBLE the chance for the same gear as well!
As well offering sprint and enticer distance, Hills tri club is excited with the addition of two new events;
“Based on member feedback, we are now offering, first time ever, Aquabike and Aquarun to our series. As always, races we put on are open to everyone, not just HTC members and the Garmin Tri Series is no different,” says Tommy.
“We usually see a 50/50 mix of people from other clubs, and people new to the sport altogether. We offer a really supportive environment for newbies which brings people back each event.”
Juniors contribute to be the backbone of growth in triathlon, and previously they have accounted for almost a quarter of all entrants. Once again there will be three different junior distances on offer, and thank to some very generous sponsorship from Eden Brae Homes we are able to keep junior entries to just $20 each.
The Garmin Tri Series kicks off with three events this year, and three more to come in 2018, including the annual Club Distance West Metro race day, and "Enduro" race day.
