The Rutherglen Triathlon will be held on Sunday 12th March 2017 at the Rutherglen Pool.
In its 20th year the triathlon is a community event that is on same weekend as the gourmet event the Tastes of Rutherglen.
It consists of two events:
The Long Distance Event comprises a 1.5Km run, 22Km ride, 200m Pool swim and finishes with a 3.5Km run
The Short Distance Event (Junior and Back of the Pack events) comprises a 10Km ride, 200m pool swim and a 3.5Km run. It is designed for the younger participant. The Back of the Pack event is the most popular category and is for adults wanting to complete the shorter event. The team event is for families (eg mum, dad and child) who want to compete together.
There are numerous categories in each event including both individual and team events and has over $2000 in cash and prizes.
This year we are including a club team category in the senior event where clubs (sporting and non-sporting) can compete against each other for a perpetual trophy.
All events are supervised by the local SES, Police and Rotary.

As the current President of Rutherglen Rotary I welcome you to our Website and I hope it offers members and visitors alike a useful resource to gain further information on Rotary and our club.
This year’s Rotary theme is “Rotary Serving Humanity”, and that fits well for this hands on, community focused club. We have about 30 active members that give many hours of voluntary service every year benefiting not only our local communities but, under the Rotary Banner, communities and individuals throughout the world.
Rutherglen Rotary meetings are held at the local Golf Club and the meals are generally prepared by a range of community groups offering regular support to local groups. The meetings also provide a chance for organising and developing our diverse list of projects as well as an opportunity to enjoy a chat.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this friendly, motivated club and to be offered the privilege to lead our club and serve as president for the 2016/17 year. I encourage others to explore what Rotary can offer them and to embrace the Rotary motto of “Service above Self”.
