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 2020/2021

Auckland City Tri club Nic Sproule

Nic Sproule - President

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

Cara Hair

Cara joins the ACT committee as a parent representative from the junior sub-committee. 
Both Cara’s children have actively participated in Triathlon over the past few years and have been involved in the junior training sessions that the club offers.
Cara assists with the liaison between the ACT Committee and the junior sub-committee, plus helps to organise various junior events and training opportunities.
Cara also participates in the odd Triathlon and Ocean Swim event herself for a bit of fun.

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.
