Sydney Triathlon League 1 will reconvene on the 18th January at K2 with all seven clubs still vying for the division title, promotion to the Sydney Triathlon Premier League and relegation safety. There are however, a host of individual honours up for grabs as well that promise to make the remaining events on the STL1 calendar action packed.
The Gerald Renton Medal is the MVP (Most Valuable Performer) title for the division and is presented to the athlete who has accumulated the most Performance Points over the course of the season.
