Mid-Distance Triathlon this Monday PLUS Open Water swimming.

The club Mid-Distance Triathlon takes place from Oundle Pool on Monday 6th May. That's this Bank Holiday Monday, starting at 9:00am. It's the first of this year's Club Championship Events, so we expect a good turnout. Arrive early to Register, set up your Transition and listen to the Race Brief. Further details including the Race Brief are here http://pactrac.co.uk/events/4226/ As a reminder, non-members can enter two club races before being asked to join.

It is entries on the day, so just turn up and join in the fun. If you can confirm your intentions here https://rallly.co/BJvqmbqqN?fbclid=IwAR0ZP44mpm3F7CgnLJ1OYRW9Aou3Qy2_N8fpgl1TkC8M-BlKScyJ4BGAFX8 that would help, but if not, well, just turn up anyway! Previously we have had over 30 competitors for this Bank Holiday Club Championships.

The distances are:

Swim 900 yards - that's 18-lengths of Oundle Pool.

Bike 20-miles - that's 2-laps of the Mini-Series course around Glapthorn and the Benefield's (do NOT come into Transition before you have done 2-laps).

Run 5-miles - clockwise around Glapthorn Cross-Roads and Cotterstock Cross-Roads.

We are still looking for a few extra marshals; If you can spare some time, please email sue_p_mcleod@yahoo.com


We have a Triple swim on Monday;

9:00am Mid-Distance Tri.

12:00pm a swim in the River Nene from Oundle Boat House, diagonally opposite Oundle Wharf (Park at the back of the Gorilla Cycle Shop) - out against the current and fast back, so turn when you've had enough, but please buddy-up. We should have kayak support, but please bring a brightly coloured hat.

7:00pm the normal pool swim at Oundle. A hard session, in case you haven't had enough.


We will then swim in the Nene at Wadenhoe for the next 2-3 Thursday's before starting our annual Woodford to Castor Nene swims.
