We had a great turn out on the day with 43 teams entered from secondary Schools from throughout Hawke's Bay. It was great to see so many of the up and coming athletes of our future being involved in the event.
The weather was perfect race conditions and there was a smile on the faces of not only the budding athletes participating in the events but also the parents, family and teachers who were their to support them.
Big thank you for the Sports coordinators of the the schools who help organise all the students to participate on the day.

Tremains Triathlon 2019
This is one of the biggest events the club manages and it wouldn't have gone so smoothly without all the help of the many volunteers and the event team Tri HB had supporting them, thank you.

CLUB AWARDS DINNER 28TH APRIL 2019
With the end of the summer season fast approaching we are thinking about our Annual Awards. To that end we would like to hear from you about possible contenders for Performance of the Year and the Barry Payne Memorial Shield which is presented to the person who has overcome adversity to achieve their goals.
We would hate to miss potential contenders and as most of our members are very modest we need your help to identify them.
We have a criteria that we put all potentials through but would hate to miss someone.
If you know of such a person then let Glen Yule know. He can best be contacted on President@trihb.kiwi
We are very fortunate to have Wayne Reardon from Ironman New Zealand
coming to speak. Wayne has been involved in Ironman New Zealand since 1999, being the Course Director until 2006 then Event Director from 2006 to this current day. Wayne is a great guy and I'm sure he will have some entertaining stories and give us a good insight of behind the scenes of Ironman NZ and what makes it tick so smoothly.
Ticket prices and sales will be released over the next few weeks and we will keep you updated on Facebook.
I hope you have enjoyed our latest E newsletter, please feel free to be in touch and I look forward to seeing you at our next event(s).
