Welcome from the new President, Joseph Walshe

Hello all,

I am humbled to be chosen as the new President of the Bilbys. I’ve been a member of the club since I moved to Canberra from the UK almost five years ago, and it has been instrumental in making the city feel like home – so to be able to give something back to the club is an honour.

I am of course inheriting the position in uncertain times, but I would like to thank Katie for
everything she has done over the last two years to leave the club in such a great position. While it is currently difficult to commit to a goal race with any certainty, I have found training to be the best form of self-care in such an unusual year.

I’m excited for the year ahead – the club will be aiming to deliver another novice program as well as some small-scale races that all members can get involved in. Keep your eyes out also for training camps and more social events as restrictions continue ease.

If you have any suggestions for things you would like the club to do or do differently, then get in touch with me at [email protected]

If we haven’t met before, please do come and say hi if you see me at training.

See you out there!
