Club Update and training Plans for the week starting Saturday 18th January

Congratualtions everyone who took part in the Abingdon 10k Charity Run last weekend. It was muddy and challenging, thank fully short and not very organised – but we had lots of fun… Laura ran too many loops and actually did 10k, Wai fell over a lot, Tilliy ran round the car park at the end to make up the distance… may be not one for next year, but an excellent way to start our racing year!

Club Kit: There will be a new order of our beautiful kit in 2020. Amanda at EllemenTri has brilliantly kept our prices the same as last year. We can order: Trisuits (£110), short sleeved trisuits (£125), running vest (£28), short sleeved running tops (£28). There may be other garments on offer – watch this space! You can place an order by emailing me
