Over the last few days, we have totally revoluntionised the Event Calendar system and we'd like to tell you a bit more about how you can use it.

Basic Features:
1. Events are fully searchable.
2. Events are categorised on the event home page by State - next upcoming event for each state is shown on event home page.
3. Browse from event home page by State - then select a Type of Event
4. Results lists in text run down the page - easy to change date range.
5. Click any event to open a full page for all information
6. You can add photos, reviews, view a map, local weather, plus tools for sharing with twitter & facebook, save page in Favourites, print etc.

Fancy features:
1. RSS feed for "upcoming events"
2. RSS feed for "event alerts" - this triggers and display new events, registration open, registration close and other event date alerts to keep you informed.
3. The "event alerts" feed also appears on our Facebook page is a great reason alone to Like our FB page!
4. From the basic text list of results - you can instantly click a button for "Calendar Download" - this will add all the details for that event into your iCal compatible calendar (ie. Outlook Calendar on your PC, iPhone etc). You can do this for any individual event.
5. Anyone can add a new Event, Edit an existing Event/Add photos/files, or Make a Review/Discuss an Event. (Comments automatically create Forum posts linked to the event but Reviews are not released to Forum until approved - same as always).
6. Make your own Wall Chart of selected events - which YOU customise by selecting the date range, and type of events that interest you. This comes in pdf format or RTF (which is compatible with Word) - so you can keep it electronic or print it from that program. PERSONAL USE ONLY OF COURSE.

Our event calendar has over 1500 entries and currently has over 150 upcoming new events Australia-wide, with many more currently being loaded as all the new spring/summer calendars of events are being released from the event organisers.

Our list includes Triathlons, Duathlons, Aquathlons, Adventure Races, MTB/BMX, as well as all sorts of Running events, Paddling, Swimming, Road Cycling, and TT Cycling. We even have an option for "Social Event"!

Some event organisers are adding these events themselves, but if you spot something missing or would like to add your own event you are most welcome to add it yourself. Just click the green button and away you go! Too easy.

There's tons of ways you use this Event Calendar. Please feel welcome to share events on Facebook, or come back and leave a review on one you've previously done, add your photos, or start discussions about upcoming events. This is the largest triathlon/multisport event listing in Australia so please enjoy and use it.
