This week's news, tips and race reports
No race reports this week but don't forget to sign up for the AVTC Charity Challenge on Easter Monday:
Bring a friend for free Got a friend who just needs a little nudge to come along to training? Heard someone talking about entering a triathlon but you know they could do with some training buddies? Bring them along to any of our sessions to try. We're more than happy for people to come along and try a couple of sessions before they decide to join, so forward this email onto them and let's encourage more people into the world of triathlon:)
Did you know we have a club group on Strava? By joining the group, you enter the leaderboard as to who is completed what hours of training that week - don't worry, your privacy settings will determine what everyone can see, but the Strava group totals are uploaded to our website so people can see how much we are all training. Check it out! But don't be fooled though, the person with the most training hours doesn't necessarily equate to the person who wins everything...!
