Race Report 15 March 2014
As our season comes to an end, just the Club Championship race to go, with great weather, Twinnies numbers were down as many were away competing at Mooloolaba, or Surf Living Saving titles at Kirra. There was a bit of jubilation to be seen with quite a few people achieving their PB-whether it’s the new bike some have, or just trying to beat your husband and daughter- all in good competitive fun.
Our Intermediate competitors had their club championship today and everyone stepped up to the challenge, their course is swim 6 laps, two laps of Leisure/Darlington on the bike and then run out 1 km to near the bottom of the hill and back
1st Place Tom Courtney 35:45 1st Freyja Curnow 37:21

3rd Jeremy Simpson 38:26 3rd Caitlin Jones 49:35
Another welcome addition to the exclusive 500 Race Club- Glen Lance today achieved that , congratulations. It was back on 15th October 1994 with his two children Matt and Lauren and the driving force- the lovely Di and got them out of bed each Saturday morning to head down to Twinnies.
