Ocean Swimming + Run Club Update

November 20, 2014



This weekend we're at St Heliers for our ocean swim.  Meet on the beach opposite Moretons Bar and Restaurant at 7:25am for a pre-swim briefing.  All abilities will be catered for. 

On Saturday 29 November coach Teresa Adam is offering a coached ocean swim session.  She will be covering skills such as sighting, navigation and drafting - one not to be missed!!  Meet at 7:30am at the northern end of Mission Bay in the first carpark (beside Mecca cafe).  Cost $5 per person. 

To help keep our swimmers safe at our Saturday ocean swims, we like to have a kayak in the water to offer assistance if needed and to ensure swimmers stay on course.  We have added an ocean swim roster to our website.  If you are able to help man the kayak, please email us at blacksandstriathlon@xtra.co.nz and let us know what date/s you can do. 

Last but not least on the ocean swimming - good luck to all those people who are heading north tomorrow to compete in the State Ocean Swim at Paihia!!!




With the silly season upon us, we have decided to postpone our run club until early 2015.  But this doesn't mean you get out of working on your run training...

For those that want to push themselves and work on their speed - you may like to check out the O'Hagan's 5K series.

It is held on Tuesday nights starting at 6pm from O'Hagan's Irish Bar at the Viaduct Harbour.  The course is measured out and back 5km around the Viaduct.


The entry fee is $7.  Every finisher receives a free beer, wine or OJ (incentive!!) and goes into the spot prize draw at 7pm.  Register at O'Hagan's from 5.15pm.  Perfect for all abilities and it really is the most competitive social run you'll find!!!  A number of clubbies already attend this run - so go join 'em!!!
