Join in Dysart triathlon
THE Dysart Triathlon Club is currently accepting competitor registrations for two races to be held on December 12.
The club will be hosting two reverse triathlons on Sunday starting at 10am from the Dysart swimming pool.
The races will take place in reverse order to regular triathlons, where competitors will run first, ride second and swim third.
In regular triathlons, races begin with the swim, are followed by the ride and finish with the run.
There will be two circuits on the day designed for athletes with varying degrees of experience and gusto.
The beginner circuit involves a one kilometre run, followed by a six kilometre ride, and is finished by a 150-metre swim.
For those looking for more of a challenge, the advanced circuit serves up a four kilometre run, a 12.2km ride and a 400-metre swim.
Entrants of all levels are encouraged to take up the challenge as nobody will be turned away.
The cost of entry is $7 for non-members of the club.
If it all seems a bit too much, competitors are encouraged to form a team to enter, where each member completes a different leg of the race.
Both races will start and finish at the Dysart local swimming pool on Queen Elizabeth Drive.
Before the starting pistols are fired at 10am, competitors are encouraged to get down early for a 9am briefing by the starting line.
The Dysart Triathlon Club said each competitor is responsible for bringing their own water as good hydration is an absolute must on the day.
