The TriathlonOz Forum will provide you with access to a whole new network of people that like you, are probably juggling work and family with their training and race schedules. Many people struggle with motivation, injuries and finding time so we hope you'll find the Forum the ideal place to go for advice or to share ideas with others. Go to the Forum and click New Thread to start your own post. We've started a few already to give you some ideas.

The Classifieds is for buyers and sellers of triathlon specific gear. Featuring categories specifically for bikes, parts, wheels, shoes etc. Go to the Classifieds and click Create Ad to view the range/price of ads you can place. You can even place an ad for free if it's text only, or you can include photos and get a Display ad from just $19.95. (free to Members)

The Blogs is where you read stories and articles written by other people. If you're a Member you can write blogs. Blogs are designed for thoughtful presentation of information on a topic by the blog author when an answer from others is not necessarily required. Blogs are ideal for logging a training diary, race report, photo gallery, or reviewing an item/or an event you attended. You can batch upload hi-res photos and they'll auto-resize and layout perfectly. You can also embed YouTube or Vimeo clips. And of course, you can leave a comment in someone's blog, which is a nice acknowledgement of their contribution.

The Events Calendar is interactive meaning the public is welcome to add new events or edit existing ones. You can even export the calendar! Members will also soon be able to tag themselves to events. Go to the Events Calendar and you'll notice the default shows Events for your state. Filter the type of events from view by toggle click on/off the picture icons.
