Land’s End to John O’Groats Virtual Challenge!
Please see below the link to our updated membership form which needs to be completed by all members by the end of January. These can be given to Pete Swaine or any of coaches on a Monday evening.
We had a really good turnout on Friday and despite a bit of a headwind up the slope, some really good times as listed below.
That was the last one for this year.
From the 1st September Swim times are changing at Welbeck and our
Thursday evening session is moving there from Charnwood.
They are allowing a 15 minute change time before and after each
session so we don't share the changing rooms with other users.
Monday sessions will stay as they are. (17.30 to 19.15)
Thursday swim time will be 19.45 to 20.45 so slightly earlier
than the current session.
Saturday swim time will be 7.15 to 8.15 so 15 minutes earlier
than the current session.
Pretty good weather this Friday apart from the 30 second Hailstorm, mid session! Not much wind so the times should be good. THey are listed below. The Next session is 24th July.
Below are the results of the Time Trial from 12th June 2015. It was abysmal weather so the times are likely not the best!
The results of Fridays Time Trial are below. The wind will have reduced times but it was good weather and a good turnout of 30 riders. Everyone called out their number so that was great. Next event is planned for 12th June but I am away so watch this page in case I can't get a stand in.
Below are the reults of the Time Trial from Friday. We had a good turn out for the first session.
Two things we need to do better are shouting out our numbers at the end and HELMETS ARE COMPULSORY (Our insurance requires it)
Charnwood Triathlon Club are pleased to announce they will be running Cycling Time Trials at Prestwold Airfield on a number of Friday evenings over the summer. The dates are:-
15th and 29th May, 12th and 26th June, 24th July, 7th and 21st August. Details are on the website "About the Club" page.
Prestwold Duathlon is on the 10th May
In view of the UTC moving all age group sprint distance world championship events to draft legal from next year we are using this year as a test run and have adult and youth draft legal events in the morning, with the children's non drafting events from 12:30pm
As a volunteer you will be entitled to a free event from "On Your Marks Events" . The more competitors we have the more opportunity there will be to do some drafting. Although we will need as much support as possible for the children's events in the afternoon we may be able to squeeze some volunteer helpers into the draft legal event in the morning should you wish to have a go. You can of course keep your free entry for another time, or pass it onto another friend or family member.
Contact On Your Marks Events or Charnwood Triathlon Club if you would like to volunteer
