With very few exceptions, volunteers are treated pretty shabbily, they show up early to do a lot of the grunt work as well as help run the event and tidy u...

Shoes - technical or fashion ?

Whilst looking for a new (yet again) pair of sneaks I'm lost.

Am I missing something here, or is a lot of it change for the sake of change and nothing more ?

Re: Time limit for Try-A-Tri Swim?

There is (usually) no time limit. My first couple of event swims I looked back as I was getting out of the water and the safety canoe/kayak was following me in. I said to myself "someone has to be last out of the water", then went out and caught a few people on the bike and on the run. Giv...
