Each year Triathlon South, Tasmania’s biggest triathlon club, runs over 10 events over two series, catering for young and old triathletes of all abilities and those new to the sport and those who have been coming back for over 15 years. These events are also a great social experience for many, with support crews (and some begrudging family members) joining the participants with their enthusiasm and encouragement as they go through Transition or complete a loop.
This year, we extend our welcome to those who want to do it as a work team! Look around you at work. Do you hear the runner, the rider, and the swimmer talking about their weekend, or do you know those that could and would, only if they had the opportunity?
We are issuing the challenge to Tasmanian businesses to put forward their best, most daring, most committed . . . or just those who want to take their fitness goals to the next level as part of a Triathlon Team to win the inaugural Ray White Hobart Corporate Teams Triathlon Challenge.
Our final race of the season is on Saturday April 2nd at Seven Mile Beach. Part of this event will be the inaugural Ray White Hobart Corporate Teams Triathlon Challenge, with an invitation extended to all Tasmanian businesses to send a team along to swim, bike, and run and compete seriously – or not-so-seriously – for a Trophy and a Team prize.
If this is going to be an ambition, and you want some help, we have some great support you can work with. Peter McKenna is a qualified triathlon coach, who can do the serious stuff, but also the social stuff, check out “Try a Tri” on Facebook and send Peter a message to get involved.

We all know the benefits of getting out there, engaging even supporting through sports and team sports. Triathlons are a team sport, and it can take many forms; it can be about pushing yourself, it can be about sharing the experience, it can be about fun, or it can be all of these! We don’t mind which way you approach it, as long as you are getting fit, keeping fit, being involved, and looking forward to that smile on your face as you finish. We have an option and an experience for you. All of these are welcome at our Ray White Hobart Corporate Teams Triathlon Challenge.
