Dear all Sonic!

It's September! Less than 2 months to HK ITU and Ironman Taiwan 70.3!
The coming few weeks we all should train like an crazy animal before tapering!!

29 August: Sonic Time Trial Aquathon
Thanks everybody took part in the time trial and thanks for the weather!
We have 27 fits gals and guys done the Sonic Aquathon Time Trial, same as last year we swam 4 x laps and ran 1 x laps. Just the high-tide, current and swell made the swim difficult, good swimmers gained time, first man cross the line is our surf-life-saving representative Ivan Lau, 59secs ahead of Michael Lam who had the best run split.
First lady corss the line is our Stephanie Bina.

We still have 2 time trial coming up, point score to follow, remember we give prices to top 3 men and ladies for the overall Sonic Time Trial Series!!!

26 Sept HK Triathlon Challenge by Sports Soho
First of all, everyone should already signed up for this race!

Second, we will extract all Sonic members result from the organizer and put it as our time trial result, since there are too many races before ITU and this is a good warm up for everyone to walkthough the race, avoid making mistake, there are always someone wearing shoes to swim start, forget race belt or unclipping helmet too soon....

Third, we have one wheelchair triatheles Samuel Ajmal is looking for a swim leg to join this race together, he will take care of the bike and run, he just need a swim leg for the first 500m swim, I swam for him last year, he is a very dedicated wheelchair triathlete in HK! Contact me if you want to do it.

Last, we need a volunteer to manage our tent.

26 Oct HK ITU
Disney Hotel / Buffer/ Day Trip Discount offer on the website!

For the first time Triathletes, we will also organize a course preview one week before the race, to ride and run though the entire race course, it will be on 17 October Sunday.

Anyone want to form a relay team please also contact me, Kenneth or Rockson.

Okay, it's time to go for a ride! Training Training Training!!!
