Dear Worcester Triathlete,
For next year’s club championship we have devised something a little different. Instead of a number of races and your best 6 counting, we will be having 3 individual races to decide a Sprint Champion, an Olympic-distance Champion and a Middle Distance Champion. The 3 chosen races for this year are;
Sprint = Gloucester Sprint. 26th May. £33. Always popular early season event run by our friends at Tri Team Gloucester.
Olympic = Upton-upon-Severn. 13th July. £50. Upton always sells out so if you are interested then get in early.
Middle = Ragley Hall Middle Distance. 23rd June. £99. It’s the first year for Ragley but I believe it is also being run as the West Midlands Championship so may sell out.
They are all relatively local to keep travel costs low and avoid any accommodation requirements. For the Ragley Hall event I have managed to get Worcester Tri Club members a £5 discount. To get this, you have to print out the paper entry form from the internet and pay less with the cheque (putting Worcester Tri as your club name). This will avoid the 10% fee that Active charge. Also, as the Ragley Hall event goes by my house, if enough people are interested, I am happy to take a group around the bike course and then maybe even have a little run afterwards (unfortunately not on the course).
Please let me know if you have any queries. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
