Moreton Bay Grand Prix – June 14

Hi all,

It’s just 3 and a bit weeks until the Moreton Bay Grand Prix, on June 14. This is a really fun Duathlon organised by our club and is held at Lakeside Raceway.

It’s the same distances as last year – short course is 2/7/1.5 and long course is 2/9/1.5/9/1.5. We have made a few changes this year, we are racing on a Saturday afternoon instead of Sunday morning and we have added an Enduro category where you can do both the short and long course events and your two times are added together to determine your overall race time.

The two races are held with enough time between them to allow parents to each do an event. After the long course and while we are working out all the places, Mary will run an unsanctioned Duathlon for the children of RTC up and down the Pits and this is always a lot of fun.

Thanks to our event supporters – Avantiplus North Brisbane, The Run Inn, ASICS and Endura, we will have lots of prizes and thanks to our major supporter, the Moreton Bay Regional Council, there is a heap of cash to be won.

Entries are open at: https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=12063

We would love some people to help out on the day with setting and packing up, this takes about an hour. We would also like some help during the events and we are lucky with holding a race on a closed racetrack that we do not need many people to help, so you can race one event and help out with the other. Please contact me at president@redcliffetriclub.com if you can help on the day.

The other way you can help out is to help us with promotion of the race by sharing the Facebook event- https://www.facebook.com/events/495195983922745/ on your wall please and posting the event to all your friends’ walls.

To assist with race preparation, Mary will be holding a brick session at Lakeside this Sunday at 6am.

Below is the race information, please contact me with any questions. I hope to see lots of you at Lakeside on June 14.
