SATURDAY RUN REMINDER

FIT members of all levels are welcome at the Saturday run held at a different location each week.  The shorter run/walk starts at 7.30am, with a 7am start at the same location for those who want a longer run. New members, including walkers, will be matched to those of similar ability where possible and should attend the 7.30am start. This is a non-coached event. Please join us for our usual long, loud breakfast after the run, which is scheduled from 8.30am.

newFIT MEMBERSHIP - WHAT'S HAPPENING IN 2014?

  • It's almost the new financial year so that means it's also time to renew your FIT membership -- much more fun than your tax return!
  • The FIT Committee has been working for several months to develop a new approach to membership. We want to make sure we can keep offering you the running, cycling, swimming and water running activities everyone values so much - not to mention the breakfasts, celebrations and training support that are such an important part of FIT!
  • The Committee has decided that from now on in order to join FIT you'll also need to become a member of our sport's peak representative body Triathlon Australia (TA) and its local arm Triathlon ACT (TACT).
  • One of the benefits of this affiliation will be to increase insurance cover for FIT and its volunteers.
  • For most members this will mean a small increase of $5 in annual fees to cover this as well as FIT annual membership fees which will remain the same:
    • $45 for renewing members
    • $50 for new members.

A small additional processing fee also applies to the new online membership system.

  • There's more information here - please take the time to read this so you understand the new approach.
  • Membership for the upcoming year is now available -- the sign-up system now goes via the Triathlon Australia website to complete your FIT & TA/CT membership in a single easy process: http://triathlon.org.au/Membership/Annual_Membership.htm.
  • NOTE: If you have previously taken out a multi-year membership that has not expired you still need to join and pay the TA/CT fee according to your choice of membership level. FIT has now sent multi-year members a code to use so you don't pay the FIT membership fee again. If you don't have this please email janehome@grapevine.com.au . Multi-year memberships will no longer be available.
  • If you do not want or are unable to join FIT using the internet please call the TACT office for assistance on 6260 4430 or  admin@triathlonact.com.au.
  • The Committee has been working to address a number of glitches that have occurred as we change to the new system --- we appreciate your understanding as we implement what we believe is the best solution for the club as a whole.
