Hillingdon Entrants 2012
Hillingdon Sprint Tri Race 3 entrants as @ 21/05/2012
Gary's TT session is back this week after a week off for the NADI. Now that the aquathlon (see below) is over I know some of that team are up for a return to the bike for the rest of the season so here's what's in store this week.
LOCATION: Box Hill Olympic Loop
MEET: Thu 2nd July, 6.30pm clubhouse, 6.45am Kingswood Arms and 7pm at Pfizer roundabout.
SESSION: there will be two loops dependant on ability/fitness; a shorter loop and the full Olympic loop. Details on forum but to be clear we will regroup at the start line and wait for all riders.
Please let Gaz know on the forum if you're interested so he will have an idea of numbers and please do bring your £2 on the day - it all goes towards the end of season celebration!
The seven-strong SLH team that travelled to Cologne for the ETU European aquathlon championships has had a great weekend. Everyone did themselves proud out on the course and Natalie and Ben came away with bronze medals. Reports will no doubt follow when the effects of the post-race beers have worn off along with some photos.
That wasn't the end of the medalling though, far from it. At the National Middle Distance championships in Cambridgeshire, Ruth Hutton and Jim Burdett collected a gold and bronze respectively. This race attracted a very strong field and the medals were hard won - high quality performances from Ruth and Jim as always. Steve Rigby got a massive PB to boot.
Thank you very much to everyone that came to compete and marshal at the first GO TRI aquathlon organised by SLH and Fitness Express at L&G in Kingswood on Wednesday evening. The event was a success - congratulations to everyone that finished, especially those that were taking part in multisport for the first time (that includes the winner, Emma Craig!).
The event was the brainchild of Steve Clancey and wouldn't have happened without him - thanks Steve and thanks also to our other marshals (Steve R, Ben, Chris McH, Donna, Tanya, Victoria, Steve V, Nick, Tansie and Encsi - thanks Sandhya for providing the list of names!)
Want to try? There are three more similar races to come this summer, next one on Wednesday 29 July, 5pm in Kingswood. Entry details will be on-line soon.
The new cycle kit has arrived. Here it is!
Looks great. Please get in touch with our kit man, Chris McHugh, to arrange collection if you've ordered one.
More pictures of the new jerseys are available on the kit page.
If you would like to order one, please let Chris know soonest along with your size (chart here). As soon as he has five people paid up, he can make an order which will then take 5 weeks to deliver.
