2020 Club Championship Races Announced

Happy New Year to everyone! Its time to start planning your campaign to win the 2020 Club Championship! The format has been changed to focus on a select few races which should be really exciting events with a great turn out and atmosphere. Your best 1 from 4 at each distance (short, medium and long) will count. For 2020 there is the added bonus of the Amsterdam marathon weekend races that are already very popular with club members. There are also bonuses for representing the club at the main Harrier League cross country and relays – both of which are free to club members. One big change is that for 2020 there will be separate mens and womens competitions with prizes to the top 3 in each. I am expecting some more fabulous racing by club members in 2020. Full list of races and rules –

The timing was perfectly aligned to make sure we all got wet but that didn’t stop the fun and enjoyment. It was a sell out event although I think the rain put off quite a few as we had a number of no-shows on the day. There were a larger than usual number of novices which did make for a particulary easy going event without the display of top-end time trial bikes on show. Continue reading

Go Tri Ponteland #2 – 5th June 2019 ****UPDATED****

The weather was kind to us again for the second of our Go Tri this year, probably perfect conditions for those competing. We had 46 finishers on the night so a modest turnout for us 😉

The atmosphere was great with loads of freindly marshals helping out and encouraging the traithletes. There seems to have been a bit of a happiest triathlete competition ongoing at the finish line 🙂 🙂
