Time: 3:30pm
Venue: School Hall, Diocesan Boys' School

Our Sonic own TriA Vice President Philip Penaloza's two years of service in HKTriA expired but he is very keen to continue his duty and he would like to re-elect as Vice President of TriA and he is calling everyone from Sonic for a vote! Here comes his message;

"My platform of program for the term:
1. Complete the new Triathlon HK logo redesign project (Will be launched mid 2010!).
2. Promote the new logo in co-branding partnerships with commercial sponsors
3. Train TRI HK Secretariat  to be marketing focused
4. Win more commercial sponsorships for Triathlon HK ITU and all events.
5. Change the shortened form of the Association's name to "Triathlon HK" or "TRI HK" in all correspondence, instead of HKTriA. The official & legal name still remains "The Hong Kong Triathlon Association LImited".

I will be in Kaoshiung Taiwan on business from Jan 8-10, so I would appreciate everyone's show of support at the AGM on Jan 9, 2010.
Mnay thanks and regards,

Another one of our member Andrew Loong is also very keen to run for election as Hon Secretary so as to contribute and providing legal advise on his professional prospective to HKTriA. He always needs support from everybody.

Awards for 2009 race series will also be presented to some of our members such as Ivan, Sebastien, Stephanie, Kent.....

24 January: Duathlon 1 at Shatin Science Park
This year I would like to simplify the race registration process for the team so I would ask everyone to make use of the online registration platform of HKTriA, hopefully it would help to leverage the workload of Sonic Club Secretary, but we hope it would NOT mean to discourage the number of participation in the race. Hope everyone understand.

However, if you're really prefer the old paper and pen way, Kenneth will still help you to do the race enrollment for the time being.

Duathlon 1 will be 5k run, 30k bike, 5k run at Science Park, check out triathlon.com.hk for detail please. 

Upcoming races:

10 January: Mizuno Half-Marathon
24 January: Duathlon 1
