BTS News

I know many of you have attended BTS Training Sessions and dabble in the odd Triathlon. This week BTS released some big and exciting news about the future of the club.
From Mark Turner:
Our big news that we alluded to last week is that we will be merging with Tri Alliance from Melbourne.  We announced the merger at our end of season party on the weekend and it was great to have Ollie Allan, the head coach of Tri Alliance in Melbourne with us at the party for the announcement.
See the BTS blog for more information.

Mark explains in the blog the impact this will have on their current members, which is minimal.

But what does it mean for BRS??? NOTHING

Initially BRS was set up as a partner of BTS, however we have been operating independently for some time. We will maintain the same training structure, membership scheme, coaches, name, and branding etc.
We will still keep our close working relationship with Mark and the other BTS coaches as they move into this exciting period of change and new opportunity.

If you have any questions, please ask Matt or Myself.

Happy Running

Renae & Matt
