The following presentation has been put together by the Triathlon section of SAC. The idea is to give a better insight and recommendations for fellow club members on some good quality multi sport events. If you do enter any of these events, can you please inform Joan Lennon ( [email_address] ), and then she will update her internal participant SAC list. This will help for anyone who wants to car-share or train together for a specific event. (Plus it will help bond club members). Go on, enter a race or two, maybe you will surprise yourself and really enjoy it?
