Today we finished our 2020-21 Triathlon season. We raced today in honour of our dear friend, committee member and competitor Michael Henderson who suffered a fatal heart attack at the Tweed Enduro two weeks ago.
The club named a new perpetual award, The Michael Henderson Memorial Trophy for Club Person of the Year. The inaugural winner was our club president Paul Billings. He is encouraging everyone to get a ‘Hendo Heart Health Check-up’ done to avoid this happening again.
After the race we also recognised the age and category winners for the season as well as some special awards.

Online registrations are now open for Round 6 of the Armidale Triathlon 2020-21 season on 21 March 2021. Online entries close at 8 pm, 20 March 2021.
After consideration by the committee, it has been decided that we would not do the advertised extra-long course triathlon this round. We will be using the normal long course instead.
This round will be held in honor of our friend and club mate Michael Henderson and if anyone wishes to not have their race times recorded, just let us know.
The event will conclude with the presentation of championship awards.
On the day entries are available but attract a fee. Bring a smart phone to register on the day.

Michael Henderson will be remembered by the many Clubs he was associated with over the coming weeks.
Armidale parkrun will have the first opportunity to honour his memory this Saturday morning with his family and friends.
I have included Michael’s funeral service details below.
The Armidale Triathlon Club will have their tribute at the next event on the 21st March.
PBThanks to everyone for your lovely comments and messages of support this week after the passing of our parkrun buddy, Michael Henderson
We would like to do something extra special this coming Saturday (13 Mar) as a tribute to Michael for his unwavering support of Armidale parkrun and his friendship to many.
Newcastle United were his favourite footy team, so let’s all please wear black and/or white this Saturday so we have a huge sea of the Magpie colours.
Michael’s immediate family, Kate, Maddy & Andrew, will be joining us for the event. If you would like to come along for a run or walk but haven’t been to parkrun before, we’d absolutely love you to join us. Please register and bring your printed barcode. We’ll scan it at the end of the 5km, you’ll get a result by email, and we’ll know who attended. Register here: www.parkrun.com.au/register/
