August 20th and 21st 2016
Enter now and get a discount!

Use the code ‘coffstriclub16’ to get a 10% off your entry price
for all the Coffs Tri Club members.
Saturday the 20th August for the harder stuff
Sunday the 21st August for the mini events and the juniors

Perfect thing for the kids to sink their teeth into and maybe the adult members doing short course or getting into it to try the taste.
Those on the Saturday wishing to do less technical course would be best served going into the ENDURO which has less distance and less technical MTB and Paddle (the paddle is 3 laps of the harbour inside)
Duathlon is good for an iron athlete who wants the km and training effect with no paddle.
Volunteers needed in THIS SATURDAY for the Adventurethon -
7am to 10:30am OR 10:30am to 2:30pm.
If you can spare either of those times then we would love to have you. Please let us know either by registering at or contact Tamara on 0409408059 so we can get you out the info pack and organise your free volunteer shirt

LADIES - Thank you for donating!

We often take what we already have for granted when we get excited about buying a new kit, new shoes etc.
The thoughtful collaborations between Bree and Jan Rooney meant that the women at the Warrina Women and Children Refuge received a gift from all of us that are blessed to have plenty to spare.

"Bree had this idea a few years ago and we just never got around to it until now" Jan Rooney, after delivering baskets full of donated items.

All the items given were in great condition and were well received. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, maybe it can become a yearly pre-season donation.
