News This week:
The Blenheim 7k is now open for entries. Please register and enter the team: Lower Windrush Tri Club. We have a title to defend! Sadly this year it does clash with the London marathon – so I will not be part of the team… but I will certainly be helping the juniors train and will be with you in spirit on the day!
Secondly – Oxford Half Marathon, for the first time ever, have opened their registration as a ballot. To get your place in the half this year (on the 13th october) you must enter the ballot by the 1st March. If you are unsuccessful in the ballot then you can apply for a charity place, or, I am hoping to secure a bundle of entries for the beginners running group – so I might have some spare places up for grabs! Enter the Ballot here:
Reminder: The brand new Witney Triathlon Club for Juniors aged 8 -16 years launched last week. The Club will meet and train every Saturday afternoon from 3pm at the Woodgreen School in Witney and opens for business in February. For more information, and to express an interest visit the website:
Our own training continues on Friday evening in the Standlake village hall – Circuit training at 6.30pm – hope to see you there…
There will be no circuits next week (1st Feb) due to the Devon Coastal half marathon – good luck to Jon, Andy, Kirsty (nd me!) all heading down to race next weekend.
