Races

We normally do two club sprint distance triathlons (swim: 750m, cycle: 20kms and run: 5kms) over the summer season and also a friendly inter-club sprint triathlon race with Brats. CTC or Brats host this inter-club race on alternate years.

We also do two club duathlons (run: 2.5kms, cycle: 20kms and run: 5kms) over the winter months. There is also an inter-club duathlon, again with Brats, which each club hosts on alternate years.

You do not have to be a member of CTC (or any other triathlon club) to take part in our races and all are welcome. Our races are sanctioned by Triathlon New South Wales and are subject to the Triathlon New South Wales rules – insert link. By entering, you are agreeing to comply with these rules and the other waivers which you agree to upon entering the race.
