Dust off that mountain bike, CCTM is holding a cross duathlon at the Penguin Mountain Bike Park on November 22
It's time to test your off-road skills!

Circular Head Women's TRY-athlon

This Sunday (15th) sees the running of the inaugural Women's TRY-athlon and Fun Run at Stanley. This event is the initiative of a great group of women from the Circular Head area who want to make a difference in their community.
Over 80 women will hit the chilly waters off Tatlow's Beach on Sunday afternoon and will be started by CCTM member and Triathlon legend, Doris Truman.
CCTM has joined with Cradle Coast Sports & Events and Triathlon Tasmania to lend our support to this great event. Tracy Doherty will be Race Director and Steve Quinn will look after the Technical team with support from LTC members.

We will be setting up from about 11 AM with the race due to start at 2 PM if anyone is heading that end of the coast any assistance would be appreciated.

Coaching course reminder

Triathlon Tasmania are conducting a Development Level coaching course in Launceston on August 29th and 30th.

There are a few places left and CCTM would like to see at least a couple of members at this course. The course is theoretically and practically based, with swimming, cycling, running, and transition sessions containing substantial practical time (therefore all triathlon gear/equipment needed – no wetsuit)

The focus of the course is: to develop coaches working with triathletes / para-triathletes who are preparing to compete in triathlon races.
  • The coach in action 
  • The coaching process 
  •  Swimming for triathlon 
  • Cycling for triathlon 
  • Running for triathlon 
  • Transitions for triathlon 
  • Fitness, conditioning, and athlete preparation for triathlon 
  • The junior triathlete – long term development 
  • Planning and programming for triathlon 
  • The mature triathlete 
In terms of assessment there are four components:
  1. Attend the course for the its complete duration (all sessions) 
  2. Complete the course workbook 
  3. Observe and work with a mentor coach for a total of 24 hours; then conduct a coaching session that is observed by an assessor 
  4. Design a three month training program for a triathlete at any level
The cost is $300 but if you complete the course and are prepared to offer support to the club by way of organised coaching sessions for members then we will consider refunding your TA membership in the following season.

If you are interested please contact Tracy Doherty ASAP -
