PB for PB
Perry Blackmore just ran 2:35:15 at Melbourne marathon last weekend
beating his PB set as a 17 year old by 1 minute!
Congratulations also to all those Bilbys competing in the 24 hour MTB race
last weekend. I have no hope of summarising the results here but if
someone wants to try I'd only be too happy to put them in a later update.
Had a baby? Got engaged? Competed in a race recently? Was it the first
time you have competed in such an event? Did something interesting happen
that you'd like to share with the rest of us. Then please drop me a line
at garry.stevens at bilbys.org We'd love to hear from you.
Govt Corporate Tri Launch - you can be a part of it - Wed 18/10
Triathlon ACT is holding a big event launch for the Phillips Fox
Government and Business Triathlon on Wednesday, 18 October at 12.45pm
lakeside at Lake Burley Griffin. Jon Stanhope will be officially
launching this event and the plan is for a couple of short speeches by
Anthony Willis from Phillips Fox and Simon Thompson (the media love him!)
to both preceed and follow Mr Stanhope’s launch.
TACT are also going to run a couple of fun novelty ‘races’ where
participants can win a free entry into the PF Gov & Business Tri by being
part of a push up/air cycle/run race.
TACT is asking for our support for the launch by attending and
participating in the novelty races. The media will be in attendance and we
would hope that some of our members may appear in the coverage of this
If you can make it, please RSVP to me garry.stevens at centrelink.gov.au so I
can let them know how many they can expect. So far I have had nil response
- surely there is at least one Bilby who would like to go along????

New race in the air - Sydney Olympic Distance Race
It is with great pleasure that t3 Events announce a coup for all
Australian Triathletes. After months of behind the scenes work with
Sutherland Shire Council, New South Wales Police, Triathlon Australia,
Triathlon NSW and our event partners Cronulla Surf Lifesaving Club we are
very proud to announce that 18 March 2007 athletes will enjoy the
inaugural Cronulla Olympic Distance Triathlon.
Set in the pristine waters of Wanda Beach this event promises to be a
landmark event for all triathletes. With an ocean swim, a fast time trial
bike course and an undulating run which will wind through the spectators
in Lucas Reserve, this race has something for everyone. More importantly
the Sydney CBD finally has an Olympic Distance Triathlon to call it's own.
The event website and entries will go live on Monday 6 November 2006 and
please note that the field will be capped (maximum numbers are to be
confirmed)so please keep checking back or join up on the t3 Events mailing
