Club welfare officer Rachel Ward is running her 5th London Marathon next month and raising money for Multiple Sclerosis. She has chosen this charity for personal and medical reasons. Sadly this disease has affected a good friend and last year a patient she had nursed for 20 yrs finally died.

As many of you will be aware her running/training has been blighted by a silly achilles problem plus too much work! But she will still go out there and do the best she can.

Please go on to her Just Giving page here.

All the best Rachel

A date for your diaries – Saturday 16th July 2011.
This is a great event organised by Tri Team Glos.  We have supported in the past and everyone who has done it has enjoyed it.  Let me know if you want to take part this year please? The event fills up very quickly so I need to get entries in ASAP.

Thanks Phil, Team manager (email)


The event consists of three consecutive triathlon races:

• Race 1 is a traditional SWIM, BIKE, RUN.
• Race 2 is the reverse RUN, BIKE, SWIM
• Race 3 is a mixture BIKE, SWIM, RUN

Each Adult race distance is 200m swim (8 lengths), 5km bike (10 laps) and a 1km run (laps).
Childrens races start at 75m swim, 1.5km bike, 900m swim for Tristars Start (aged 8 ) getting longer for older kids in line with BTF guidance.

There will be 5 minutes’ organisation time after the last team in the wave finishes before the next race starts. During this time you will need to re-rack your bike, organise your transition area and get to the start of the next race.

There will be six teams in each wave and there will be five waves. Waves have been ability-graded as well as possible in order to make each wave competitive.

The Worcester Triathlon Club subscription year runs from 1st January to 31st December therefore 2011 subs are now over due.
It is necessary to fill in a new form as the club must have signed confirmation that all your details are correct. The membership renewal form can be downloaded here – Membership Renewal Form.
Either post your completed return to Phil Parsons with a cheque for the correct fee (NB discounts for BTF membership no longer apply) or hand deliver to any committee member.

Related to this, from the 16th April guests or non-members will be charged £3 for swimming. This is inline with other activities and still offers good value to swim in a organised laned session, but should also act as encouragement to join properly (or renew).
Any existing members who have not renewed by 16th April will be deemed to have lapsed their membership and be required to pay the increased charge.
