Telstra Store Rural Tri Series
Telstra Store Rural Tri Series 2014 - 2015
Once again Tri Horsham is excited to be part of the Telstra Store Rural Tri Series, covering 7 rural triathlons to be held at Yarrawonga, Benalla, Echuca, Albury, Warrambool, Maryborough and Horsham.

This series provides a great opportunity for athletes to not only compete in seven interesting, varied, and well run events, but also to hone their skills over the course of the summer and at the same time accumulate points toward an overall series.

And the best part? It is free! You don't have to enter either, just compete in a minimum of three events and you automatically qualify and are entered!!

Each athlete will accumulate points based on their placing within their age category at each of the seven events. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male and female athletes in their age category at the completion of the Series.
