13West Arnhem Wire - Fortnightly news in brief from Jabiru, Gunbalanya, Maningrida, Warruwi and Minjilang The West Arnhem Wire | 22 May - 4 June 2015 Jabiru Fire Station OfficerIn-Charge Mick Hutton said the Kakadu Triathlon was a great way to promote the fire service, engage with the local community, and promote healthy lifestyles. Plus its bloody good fun. Jabiru is a community that others need to emulate as far as engagement and inclusiveness goes. The event is a fundraiser for Careflight, but that is almost secondary, it is just an added benefit, Hutton said. The event would not be possible without the excellence of (ERA Communities Advisor) Leona Katzer, who has the organisational skills and drive to see it through from beginning to end. Each year it becomes more and more of a professional event. He said the short-course triathlon allowed people of varying degrees of fitness to participate. I dont know how old the oldest competitor was, or how young the youngest but it doesnt matter, just being part of it, that was the success of the event. Hutton, who did the 250m swim leg of the triathlon for his team, said the water was a little bit cool at 6am. I did a shocking swim, like I was carrying a brick, but thankfully my other two team members made me look good, he said. Mike Martin did the 2.6km run while Justin Gould did the 2.5bike leg. Next year we hope to promote the event further, and get more competitors from Darwin, Hutton said. Jabiru Area School Principal Learne Dunne has indicated she is happy to engage further with the concept of a Junior Triathlon and clinic to be run on a separate course during school hours. There is also an opportunity for more volunteers to come on board and help with the set-up and pull-down of the event, and enjoy being part of running it.
