Current Auckland City Triathlon Committee

Auckland City Tri Club is a community club run by and for our members. We always welcome volunteers to help with specific projects and lending a general hand – we will post requests for help on our Facebook page and in our newsletter…it’s a team effort.

The hardworking volunteer committee team for 2019…

Tony Sangster - President

I have been a member of the Auckland City Triathlon Club for over 15 years and this is the second time I have been on the Committee. I initially served as Treasurer, then took a break and have now returned as Club President. Triathlon is outstanding sport with the ability to achieve your personal goals, meet a whole bunch of amazing people and be part of a national and international community. I am also a Level 3 triathlon technical official for Triathlon NZ and ITU, officiating at national and international events and on the Technical Advisory Committee of Triathlon NZ. My professional career covers SME accounting, administration and systems development and management.  

Auckland City Tri club Nic Sproule

Nic Sproule

Long standing committee member, Nicola, is chief organiser of the annual ACT Club Duathon at Pukekohe and helps co-ordinate club social events, the newsletter, membership issues and answering the club emails.  She has been accused of being an event junkie, so you will see her at all distance triathlons from sprint to ironman as well as at running and cycling events, and even some swimming events.  Always keen for celebratory drinks after events to round off the day.

Patricia Carden - Treasurer

Patti has been hooked since her first Try a Tri in London back in 2004, and has competed in a handful of events  every year since then,  including four Ironmans. She is mad about her sport and her cats,  and has been a dedicated volunteer in the position of club Treasurer since July 2016.

Megan Dalton

One of the original members of the ACT committee back in the early nineties, Megan was also a competitive triathlete. Highlights included NZ elite team Olympic Distance twice, back to back wins Tauranga Half Ironman, 1st woman 18-24 years NZ Ironman, and competing locally and internationally in many races. Now her son is involved in the sport, she has found herself back on the committee, helping Ali with the junior programme. Not so fit these days, but happy to offer advice or help others out

Tracey Mckinstry

Tracey is a wonderful social media guru as she is significantly younger than the rest of the committee ! You will know her by her lovely mass of curly hair, big smile and boundless energy. 

Alison Feeney

Alison is actively involved in the Auckland City Tri Club and has been on the committee since July 2017. She is responsible for Junior Liaison at the Club and is one of the key drivers behind communication to the juniors (and within the club in general) and organising the Junior camps and Junior participation in national and overseas events. Alison is passionate about juniors reaching their full potential and feels that open communication and information transfer about training, development and race opportunities is a key to this, as well as training with your friends and having fun in a supportive environment.   

Ali loves open water swimming and riding her bike!!! Ali is also a Tri NZ Level 1 Technical Official. 

Katie Gormley

Coming from the UK, I soon realised that completing a triathlon was virtually compulsory in New Zealand. So I waded my way around a 300m swim, took my commuter bike for a 10km spin and jogged 2km in an all-women’s event and there has been no looking back. Having my first swimming lesson at 38 was maybe leaving it a bit late to make the national team, but I don’t sink anymore. The bike is for taking in the scenery and the run is the fun bit. Now with a few Ironman events under my belt I am passionately fronting a one-woman campaign to get tea recognised as an essential food group that has to be served at the end of races.
