For over two decades, the Triathlon Clubs of the Central West region of NSW (Bathurst TC, Cowra TC, Dubbo TC, Mudgee TC and Orange TC) have battled it out at each other’s events over the course of a season to decide who the Premier Club of the region is.
It has been and continues to be a concept that brings triathlon alive in the region and triathletes together. Club Pride is synonymous with the region and the great rivalries between the clubs fosters great friendships also.
The Central West Interclub was a main part of the inspiration behind Triathlon NSW’s push to introduce Interclub competitions in other regions throughout NSW, successfully introduced last season.
For this season, Triathlon NSW will work alongside the five clubs of the Central West and the Central West Interclub Series, helping to administer the competition and support the incredible volunteers that have invested time and effort into ensuring the competition continues to thrive.
“The sport of triathlon is continuing to grow in the Central West and Bathurst Wallabies Triathlon Club are excited for Triathlon NSW to be involved in the interclub competition this season” Richard Blackie, President of Bathurst Triathlon Club
The main support that Triathlon NSW will provide will be to;
- Update and display the ladder of the Central West standings
- Update and display the Central West Interclub calendar of events
- Update and display results from the Central West Interclub events
- Create and display Club Profiles detailing a club bio and club history
- Create and display pre and post Central West Interclub event articles
- Process Central West Interclub event results and create the points returns
- Increase exposure of the competition outside of the region
- Introduce and manage an MVP (Most valuable performer) ranking for the competition and each club
The competition will continue to run the same successful format, with each participating club hosting a round. It is the Clubs themselves that decide the date of the events and relay this information to Triathlon NSW.
“The Bathurst Wallabies Interclub round on Australia Day has become a highly anticipated fixture on the calendar and we are excited for this tradition to be continuing this season” Richard Blackie, President of Bathurst Triathlon Club
The region will adopt the Triathlon NSW point system. Details of this can be found by clicking here
Triathlon NSW are delighted to have developed a closer working relationship with the clubs of the Central West region and look forward to assisting with the delivery of such a superb annual competition.
The Mudgee event will start the Central West Interclub proceedings on 17th November 2019 with a run-swim-bike-swim-run event.
It is likely to be a very competitive competition this season with several clubs looking in great condition.
