Although we are quite a new club lots of members seem keen to get stuck straight into events, so I'll try to keep this page up to date. Some of the events listed will be directly related to triathlon and some to other sporting interests, some will directly involve the club and others will be further afield. If there is something going on that you think should be on this page let me know, either by Email or at a training session.

The STA Aquathon events are an ideal introduction to multisports, and comprise swimming and running, with distances varying according to how old you are. Points are awarded for the events that you do, with the four best results counting for the overall prize. While primarily aimed at kids most of the dates include some form of adult events. Maybe, if there's enough interest we could try to get a mini bus for some of the closer events.
Anyone wanting further details of any of these events should speak to either Peter or Harry. If we don't have details to hand we can certainly get them for you.
