Like buses here comes a third News in as many weeks......

Congratulations to Steve Osborne on his excellent 12:45:58 at Ironman Sweden – was it really only a few months ago that he was worrying about getting around the EG Tri Sprint course?

Equally congrats to Val Mclaren who has passed her ASA Level 1 Coaching course – hugely useful set of skills to add to the EGTC Coaching team

For Oktoberfest Jackie Barker is offering a possible trip to Merstham Caves near Redhill in the company of some expert cavers from the Surrey Search & Rescue team. This is likely to have to be limited to 6-8 people and a “voluntary” contribution of £10-15 per head might be appropriate? Names of interested parties to me asap and then Jackie can try to organise day/time?

First event in Oktoberfest will actually be on the last Saturday in September – Sat 24th – when Martin and Tom will lead a session in the Pavilion giving you an insight into the Swim sessions they will be coaching through the Autumn. Be there at 9.00am to get the lowdown on bubble bubble breath!

Once again we are reminding you that 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

This Saturday 3rd September sees us restart the two swim sessions again with a 6.30am and 7.25am time slot. Core with Jan will follow at the slightly revised time of 7.40-8.10am each week.

Train safe
