The triathlon provides funding for numerous Goulburn Valley charities, community groups, and sporting clubs who provide volunteers on the day. So if you’re not up for completing the course why not come down and support the entrants, and the volunteers. It’s set to be a great day, and being mid November the weather should be perfect for getting out and about around the lake.
