Weekly Update 12 February 2022

Hi Everyone

Firstly thanks to all for your good conduct and consideration with swim bookings. As I said last week we hope to be able to increase swim lane capacity to pre covid numbers as regulations relax and the case numbers return to something more like normality. Simple courtesy like cancelling early and a heads up on the Facebook group all help to ensure that everyone gets a fair chance, and no spaces and coaching time booked and paid for by the Club get wasted.

It was great to see all the photos from last week’s cross country races on the Club Facebook page, lots of smiles and happy faces! Coming up next weekend we have the first event in the multisport calendar in the Club Champs events, the Chilly Duathlon down at Castle Combe racing circuit, the other side of Swindon. Loops of the flat closed road racing circuit for the bike sandwiched between mixed terrain runs – guaranteed for quick times … no guarantees for warm sunshine however, potentially wet, cold and windy if that is your thing! Still places available for those interested, excellent training and fun racing experience.

At this week’s committee meeting we discussed planning for the Radley sprint Tri pencilled in for April (subject to race licences and BTF etc), and change of suppliers for the Club kit. Will keep you all posted as that develops. We also welcomed Rachel Bell onto the committee to fill one of the vacancies – thanks very much Rachel!

Feeling like spring has arrived early – prizes for any cycling tan lines today!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
