Ron was a local Hills resident and took up Triathlon as it gained a niche in the Australian Sporting landscape.
He ﬁrst joined the Galston Triathlon Club and through that membership became a Founding Management Committee member of the ﬂedgling Triathlon NSW.
He was keen to see the sport take its place in the sporting landscape in the Hills District. Hence he organised the ﬁrst ever Triathlon in the district.
Ron was a founding Committee member of the club and remained so for many years.
Ron raced widely and was a real motivating force for the club, racing in the ﬁrst Club presence at the Triathlon NSW Club Championships.
He is a several time Hawaii Ironman competitor and has his own number for ﬁnishing 10 Australian Ironman.
Ron was awarded his Life Membership in recognition of his foresight in introducing Triathlon to the Hills District, his long and constructive contribution to the Clubs Management structure, the pride he exhibited in racing including numerous Triathlon Club Championships.
Ron now lives at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast and still competes regularly in Triathlon and running events. He is a member of the Noosa Triathlon Club these days, however, Ron is still very well respected by all club members at Hills Tri, and still regularly makes the trip to NSW help Hills at the annual Club Champs.
