Don't forget our Club Champs, to secure our own wave we need at least 20 entries from the club by the end of May.
This year's Club Champs is one race - the Newbury Triathlon - which is on Sunday 2nd September. We have organised our own wave but we need at least 20 people to enter from the club to secure this by the end of May. It is a race that always fills but they are holding these spots currently for us.
The 2018 Newbury Triathlon is based at Northcroft Leisure Centre in the heart of Newbury. Centred around the 75-yard outdoor heated swimming pool, there is plenty of space for spectators to watch both the swim and transition antics. The race distances are 300yd Swim/22km Bike/5km Run and you will receive a free quality running t-shirt for taking part. Find out more and enter via the Race Nation.
Entry prices: Senior: Non-BTF member (18+) - £36.00 Senior: BTF member (18+) - £31.00 Junior: Non-BTF member (Aged 16 to 18) - £36.00 Junior: BTF member (Aged 16 to 18) - £31.00
This week's training
Monday - 7pm - Run Social - Tilsley Park
Please meet at reception.
Whilst this is not a coached session, it will help develop your running endurance - we take a 10km (ish) route around Abingdon (shorter routes are available, 5km and 7km) and run in ability groups. No-one will be left behind and there is ALWAYS someone to run with. A great way to keep your running up AND have a mini social at the same time. Win Win!
Tuesday - 7pm - Bike handling/group riding - Dalton Barracks
The benefits of group riding is its more sociable and makes training more enjoyable. The variable efforts, whether your on the front or drafting, are a beneficial way of improving your fitness and speed too. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring a drink.
Thursday - Pool Swim -6:50-8:00pm and 7:50-9:00pm - White Horse Leisure Centre, Abingdon

£3 payable to coaching staff on poolside, do not pay at reception. Please come along to either the session at 6.50pm or 7.50pm, whichever suits you better for a structured swim session that will improve your fitness and technique. If you have them bring along your fins, hand paddles etc. and a drink. Also t-shirt and shorts for dry warm up by the side of the pool.
