We decided with much heart-wrenching to transfer from our old club as we now live quite a long way away. Very happy to discover, not only will we get race entry fee supplements and half-price swim tickets, but they have 3 swim sessions per week and starting this week, a pro trainer every Tuesday. Plus group training runs on Wednesdays and a bike group on Sundays.

Excellent IW. I must say I was reflecting today on how much I am enjoying the training support and social aspect of the club I joined last year. This week included a 13 mile club run on Wednesday evening, an hour and a half coached swim session (by SwimForTri) on Thursday evening and a 50 mile group bike ride today. They will pretty much feature as three regular sessions for me over the next few months.

Hoorah, that sounds like an excellent club, not many tri clubs near us at all.

Monique, you should do what they did with Serpies and just start a tri section of your club. You can be sure there will be a lot of demand if there aren't many clubs in the area. You'll also find both sections of the club benefit, as the tri people get involved in road running and cross country etc and vice versa.

Derek and I are pushing for that, but we are dealing with some purists. Also this being Yorkshire their hair turns white at the mention of triathlon race entry fees.

what club is it richard? serpies tri section? might join, what are the details?

You just join the running club and that's it. There's no extra to join the tri section as such, other than a BTA membership which you've probably already got anyway Andy.

Problem is if we're clubmates we're supposed to encourage each other and I quite enjoy a bit of friendly abuse you old clydesdale.

You could be the Grumpy Old Men of Serpentine. Richard is the Walter Matthau I think.

Either that or Laurel and Hardy. I'm not keen on being Stan Laurel, but Andy is a shoe in for Ollie.
