Green algae still a problem. Keep checking the website for updates about Saturday.

There will be no open water swimming on tomorrow due to the green algae. The lake is being treated so let’s hope it is gone by Wednesday. We will update next Tuesday.
However, members note that we have a double swim session at Sansome Walk tomorrow (Sat 4th July). 4 – 6pm. The second hour will be coached by Arran. Hope to see lots of you there!
Open Water Swim Weds 1st July CANCELLED. There is a lot of green algae growth due to the heat and the management, whilst keeping water sports going, think that immersive sports may not be wise. We will confirm if Saturday 4th July is affected on Friday morning. Sorry about late notice but been a recent issue. This is NOT the blue green algae problems we had before.
Worcester Tri Club’s first event of the year took place on Sunday 2nd March. The Peopleton Duathlon was a great success with over 100 competitors taking part and a new shorter distance race taking place as well as the usual standard distance race. Spirits were not dampened by the wet weather and the club received lots of positive feedback from competitors and spectators.
The overall winner of the short distance race in the female category was Tracey Attwood and the male winner was Edward Dursley.
In the standard distance race, prizes were awarded for the following categories; open male and female, vet male and female, super vet male and female and ultra veteran.
Marianne Scott won the female open race in a time of 1hr 35mins and Ben Price won the male open race in a time of 1hr 15mins. The winners of the vet male and female categories were David Mole and Debbie Bradley. The super vet winners were Nick Brent and Nicola Turvey. Rob Reynolds won the super vet category.
Worcester Tri Club members were out in force and produced some great results. In particular Daniel Geisler finished a very creditable 4th overall after only recently recovering from illness.
