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 next club event will be based at Bannatynes and will take place on 16th April 2017 and will also be Round 1 of the Club Championships using a supersprint distance course (200m Swim; 10k Bike; 2.5k Run). 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

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

2017 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.

· Pool Super Sprint – Bannatynes Wellingborough - 16th April, 2017 www.pitsfordtriathlon.co.uk/downloads/Go_Tri_Information_and_Entry_Sheet_.pdf
