Merry Christmas Trihards everywhere!  This is the last post until 1st January 2019! – so the training plans below include dates from the 15th – 24th December.  I have no doubt that there will be other runs and swims that will pop up between Christmas and the New Year- so please do keep your eye on TriHard Training on Facebook – or email emma@turniton.co.uk at any time for info!

The TriHard end of season evening was last Friday, 7th December, thank you for all the lovely food and fabulous cake! It was a brilliant way to wrap up what has been a tremendous year in the triHard calendar.

Best New Comer – Edgar Easterbrook.

‘Smashed It’ award for breaking the most records – Henry Purcell.

‘Athlete of the Year’ – Kirsty Lockwood.

‘Biggest Come back’ (and smashing a Trihard record at the Oxford Half) – Andy Goff.

The ‘If you can’t beat ‘m, join’m award’ – Katrin.

The Oxford Santa Sprint  on Sunday 9th December… . was a festive and fun affair – great to meet up with many TriHards young and old.. and run for a worthy cause!

Another Worthy Cause: The Standlake Santa Run, in aid of CRISIS and organised by Wai will be on Saturday 22nd December. Meet at the Black Horse, High Street Standlake for a 3pm start.  Well done Wai for already raising over £500 for the CRISIS winter appeal.
