Scenic Sunday: Contact TriWomen Series at Pt Chevalier

Right at this moment, a group of women is swimming 300 meters, biking 7.5km, and running 3 km in my neighbourhood of Pt Chevalier. The skies are not kind, in the short time I was out taking photos, wearing a wide brim hat, the drizzling rain has made me a little wet. Spare a thought for the local residents who volunteer to manage the route.

For my bit, I have parked my car away from the route so it will be safe for the bikers. I only wish I had trained but I couldn't bear the cold water at 8 AM in the morning. I don't even go into the water in the hot mid day sun. The last time I biked was in 1975.

Way to go, ladies.

The Contact TriWoman Series is about participation and achieving your goals - whether that's getting fit, building confidence or doing something you never thought you would do.

The Contact TriWoman Series is for all women, whether that’s taking part in your first triathlon or taking on the challenge year on year. We’re all about the taking part, not the winning, the fun, not the competition and women across the country take part to achieve all sorts of goals, whether that’s getting fit, building your confidence or taking some time out from daily life and joining in on the fun!

Enter as an individual, a mother and daughter team, take part with your workmates. Do a duathlon instead. However you do it, you’ll be a TriWoman by the end of the summer!

There are 10 events countrywide,
