The heavens opening up wasn't going to stop local athletes from all around NSW on Saturday as they competed in five events on offer as part of the Trial Bay Triathlon weekend.
The categories on the Saturday included:
The enticer event was designed to encourage those interested in triathlons to try their hand at a shortened format. This was won by Jasper Sumsky in a time of 32:56.

"People loved it [the enticer], many said they'd come back and try and go for the big one," event director Greg Kings told the Argus.
The milo mini was won by Daniel Williams in a time of 21:30 while the micro was taken out by Pablo Garfield.
Kitt Quirk's 3:14 was the winning time in the aquathon and Cohen Davies was victorious in the adventure finishing in 1:37.
Mr Kings said there was strong local representation throughout the day.
"There were a few people from away, particularly from the Newcastle area but the majority of competitors were local," he said.
"The day went really well with the rain holding off for most of the event."
