“What have people got planned nest year?” a question seen many times on Facebook and heard at every session you go to. Naturally, people like to race together, race each other and socialize with their team mates. For that very reason we have put together a plan of attack – to land on the beaches in numbers and showcase our great club, and also support great events and clubs like our own.
19th of March – it goes without saying that our own Duathlon naturally has a lot of our athletes in it. At £12 early bird its a steal – also being in Sunderland, its easy to get to and maybe out for a social pint later on!
14th – May – Cleveland Sprint. Pool based sprint ran by a club like our own, it keeps the price down and the quality high. Keep your eyes out enter here See the video.
4th of June – Northumberland Triathlon, offering a sprint and a standard on the same day. Its always been a club favorite, a fast, flat bike course and a picturesque run around the country park. All in the beautiful setting of Druridge bay. See Here
8th of July – Ullswater Tri – The Jewel in the crown socially! either race the Sprint or the Standard on the afternoon and then camp and party on the night at Park Foot campsite that is well equipped with a bar and facilities. A Facebook event has been created check here race details are down the page Here. There will definitely be a few social pints going on. If your training for the Outlaw Full, this is ideally placed to get your race face on before tapering for the big one.
13th of August – Our own Triathlon will be the cheapest of its type again and no doubt have plenty team mates to beat!
TBC – September Keilder Rivier Tri’s – a challenging 70.3 / half iron or a Standard distance (Which avoids the bike hills of the 70.3) Friend of the club and coach, Alan Copeland ran this event in 2016. In the amazing, quiet location of Kielder – overnight camping, under the darkest skies in UK, is available and again, the whole experience was amazingly cheap.
