DTC 2019 Fundraising Project Equipment for HPA’s “Breaking Ground”
One of HPA’s purposes this year is to create training and employment opportunities for supported employees in the NT community. HPA’s latest enterprise is a commercial grounds maintenance business which will bring high quality lawn and garden care to the Greater Darwin area enterprise which trains and employs people with a disability.
*This specialised equipment will include a Ride On mower, a custom built trailer and additional mowers brought from local business Mower World Darwin
Darwin Triathlon Club will be donating all race proceeds from this event to HPA for their Breaking Ground project.
DTC has approximately 300 members almost evenly split between male and female; they range in age from teenagers to late 60s and from beginners to Ironman competitors. While primarily centred on Darwin, our events are conducted year-round at various locations, including Lake Bennett. The club not only conducts triathlons but also duathlons (ride/run), aquathons (swim/run), mountain bike (offroad) triathlons and specialty events such as our Christmas and Australia Day races. Volunteers manage the club and new members can find support and advice from experienced athletes and a number of club coaches.
Come & Try
Come & Try
Each season DTC runs a number of Come & Try events to give beginners and non-members a chance to experience triathlon. These are short events coupled with a club race so you get to mix with and observe experienced triathletes in action. Come & Try events are often traffic managed, while members of Mindil Surf Lifesaving Club provide all our races with water safety. It is not unusual for these events to attract up to 100 people, making for great fun. Many of our members enter the sport from a simple Come & Try event.
Apart from the Come & Try events, you must be a current member to participate in club races. When you join Darwin Triathlon Club your fees cover membership of Triathlon NT and Triathlon Australia, which covers you with insurance whilst competing and training. Once you have joined you are issued with a timing chip that records your overall time and splits for each leg of every race you participate in.Join Up
Junior event information: Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the junior programs.
Juniors who are competent to ride on open roads are welcome to participate at all club event provided they meet the relevant race age criteria.
While everyone tries hard at our events we don’t lose sight of why we participate in triathlon: for the enjoyment of staying fit and healthy and to have fun! We have a number of volunteers who enjoy photography and the club often retains a professional photographer to shoot important events. Some of those images can be seen here.Photos
