Duathlon Sunday 31st December

Hello everyone!! We are really excited to bring to you another duathlon at the end of the month! This duathlon is set in the beautiful Goyt Valley and begins with a slightly challenging 5km run. This includes running on a trail and also off road and there might be a small hill towards the end of the run. You will then go out on a bike ride down into the Goyt, out towards Derbyshire Bridge, up onto the cat and fiddle road and back down into Buxton before ascending up Long Hill back to your starting point at the top of the Goyt Valley. After this warm up you will then finish with a small run out and back along the flat trail.
We do not mind if you want to take part in this event on your own, as a relay or if you just wanted to complete one of the disciplines. There is also a Junior fun run which is 2km’s long and one of our members will run the course with the children. All we ask for this event is a gold coin donation.
This event is open to local club members. If you are not a member of a local club but are interested in the event/triathlons in general then please feel free to come to the event to have a chat with a member of the club. We hope to see as many of you there as possible! xx

Wednesday Swimming – 7-8pm in 2018!!

Exciting news – our Wednesday swim sessions are moving to 7pm from January 2018. This hopefully means we can all get to bed at a reasonable time and not feeling pumped up from one of Gary or Di’s sessions…

And as we’re athletes we couldn’t possibly consider that an earlier swim leaves us with more time for a post-swim social gathering as well. HeHe.

See you all there!
