A couple of great performances to report this week;

Juhana Kirk has been showing his speed again and sent the following; Just a few lines to say I did the Ashdown Forest Triathlon recently based at Cumnor House School and organised by Hedgehogtri. Course was more or less standard distance: 600m swim, 40k bike and 7.5k run. Somehow I managed to come second in a time of 1:54.30! Very unexpected. The bike course was fast and great fun, although pool and run laps slightly took the shine off, but a great event nonetheless. Also representing EG Tri was Gary Sims (13th Standard) and Patrick Highland (2nd SuperSprint)

More recently, the Legend that is Val McLaren took part in the National Open Water Swim Champs in Sheffield and came away with Gold in the 70-74 Age Group! A great swim a full 15 minutes ahead of the silver medalist! Should set her up nicely for the Worlds on 20th August - go get them Val!

Finally, there will be a Club Committee meeting on Wednesday 16th August 8.00pm at Kings. Some of you may have already received a personal invitation from the Chairman to come along and see the well oiled derailleur that is your Committee in action? But if not then anyone who would like to contribute to the club’s future but isn’t sure what we do is welcome to come along and find out!

That’s it - train safe
