Who Is Racing Where?

Racing is always more fun when there’s a big team around to support you. The NDT Committee has come up with a list of key races for 2020 where we are hoping to see a green army take-over. If you have or are entering one of these events, please let us know and we will add you name to the list of competitors. Over the year, we will build up a good picture of who’s racing where.

Missed your favourite event off the list? Tell us why it’s so great and we’ll add it to our Top Tri’s for 2020.
