Tri News 2016 Club Championship Series

~~There will be 4 races covering all the main disciplines up to standard distance and so should provide a balanced range of events without some of the more extreme distances and all are very local; at the moment the plan is to score 3 events from the possible 4.
 
The race calendar will be:-
· Pool Sprint – Duston - 17th April, 2016
· Open Water Sprint – Pitsford Triathlon (Sprint) - 1st May, 2016
· Open Water Sprint – British Championships, Emberton 15th May, 2016
· Standard Distance – Pitsford Triathlon 17th July, 2016 (please note change of date)
 
For the Pitsford events; a separate entry process for members has been set up which is heavily discounted and accessed via http://pitsfordtriathlon.co.uk/WDAC_2016_Sprint for the Sprint Event and http://pitsfordtriathlon.co.uk/WDAC_2016_Standard for the Standard Event : there is also a further bundle discount for members wishing to enter both events http://pitsfordtriathlon.co.uk/WDAC_2016_Triathlon_Bundle. This will be available in the next couple of weeks and I will announce this via the Facebook Group; the idea is to make getting into Triathlon racing as affordable as possible for club members.
