Duathlon 25th November

The duathlons are back. These are designed to keep people active during the winter periods, they are great events to assist with training.

For those of you that don’t know what it consists of we start 9am prompt with a 5km run from the top car park in the Goyt Valley, this run takes you along the old railway line before turning right to go off road and finally turns right up the steepest hill known to man!!

The bike ride is then roughly 18km dropping down the road to the reservoir, left towards Derbyshire bridge, left up to the cat and fiddle road, left down into Buxton, left up Carlisle road, left up long hill and then a final left back down the goyt road to transition.

The final run is a flat out and back 3km along the old railway line that you previously ran at 9am!

You can do this event as fast or as slow as you like, some people only do the runs, some only do the bike and others complete the event as a relay.

The best thing about this event is we don’t charge a penny for it. All we ask is that you offer a gold coin donation (basically a pound) if you would like to. We time the event and time the splits for people as well and it is a great event to keep coming back to and try to improve your time.

Water, sweets and racking for bikes are provided. Transition is watched at all times by our marshal. We hope to see you there.

When the duathlon competitors have set off we send the kids on a short 1.5km fun run. They are joined by one of our members and we emphasise the fact that the kids are out there keeping active and having FUN! Again there is no charge for this.

Everyone from a club is welcome. This is a training session and not a race!

Outstanding achievement award 2019

If you have not already done so please can you nominate someone for the outstanding achievement of the year award!

As in previous years all Club members are invited to send in nominations for who they think most deserving of this annual award. The nominations do not necessarily need to be based on results achieved by an individual during this competitive season. Indeed members who have shown dedication to the Club for example in the organisation of events, or perhaps as dedicated committee members etc are all equally deserving as are our various and most valuable coaches who help inspire our weekly sessions. Please also consider the many club members who as individuals have continued to push their personal boundaries this year by facing bigger challenges locally, nationally or internationally.

If you would like to make a nomination/s please let me ( dentald@lineone.net) have details together with a couple of lines justifying your choice/s and within the next few weeks PLEASE before we start the BIG countdown to “C…s” If you would like any further clarification on any of the above do not hesitate to contact me, David D

HPTC Aquathlon and kids fun run Sunday 28th October 9am

The duathlons are back. These are designed to keep people active during the winter periods, they are great events to assist with training. We are looking to change the run course on the duathlon but for this first event whilst it is not so cold we will keep it as normal.

For those of you that don’t know what it consists of we start 9am prompt with a 5km run from the top car park in the Goyt Valley, this run takes you along the old railway line before turning right to go off road and finally turns right up the steepest hill known to man!!

You can do this event as fast or as slow as you like, some people only do the runs, some only do the bike and others complete the event as a relay. I am always around to hook up with someone to do it as a relay if they need to.
