So long since the last News that I’m not sure if it even counts as being sporadic? Just hope none of you have been holding your breath in anticipation - particularly as the content hasn’t improved!

Thankfully Martin has supplied the following;

The East Grinstead 10km is on 25 Sept this year and the organisers are looking for volunteer marshals. If you haven’t marshalled at this event before, then please come along as it's a really brilliant local and friendly race, very popular with about 400 runners, and also all over very quickly!! The race starts at 10am and all over shortly after 11am. If you can come along, please contact Colin at to let him know and he will add you to his list and he will contact you nearer to race day with details.

Many congratulations to Tom Lees who recently passed his Triathlon Level 2 Coaching course with flying colours.

Weir Wood reopens on 29 Aug (on the Bank Holiday) to resume our club sessions and the next open water coached swim session for intermediate & advanced swimmers is on Monday 5 Sept to get some more practice on race skills – further details will be circulated by Martin

Good luck to those competing (and spectating) at Ironman Copenhagen this weekend - particularly Kelly’s fella who will have to go the distance without drafting which, as I understand it, has been his sole modus operandi in all three disciplines in training?

Saturday 3rd September sees us restart the two swim sessions again with a 6.30am and 7.25am time slot. Core will follow at the slightly revised time of 7.40-8.10am each week. This is to allow our new regular instructor, Jan, to get to her following class without breaking too many speed limits! Kim Corby who has been with us for a long time has decided to take swimming lessons on Saturday’s so that she can compete in the EG Tri in May - which will be great to see and support!

Finally, it's getting toward Oktoberfest time so if anyone has any ideas/suggestions for our annual fiesta then let me know and we will try to arrange?

Train safe
