NEWS!!

The club is getting involved with Triathlon England's Go-Tri initiative which is exactly what the name suggests - Go Tri a Tri - and it won't suprise you that I can highly recommend it!

Our club event will be based at Bannatynes and will take place on 21 August with entry fees only £10 for Juniors and £15 for Adults (15 and up)

PLACES ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY - there are only 8 places per junior age category and only 40 places for all other categories. For more details please use this link which has links to the entry system www.pitsfordtriathlon.co.uk/downloads/WDAC_GO_TRI_EVENTS_Information_and_Entry.pdf

Although the event will be structured around races these are FUN non chip timed events 

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
