UTC Cake Ride!!

You like to ride your bike, right??

You like to eat cake, right??!
That can only mean one thing – CAKE RIDE!!!

  • Saturday 16th September 2017
  • Meet 9.05 am – Leisure Centre

Mmmm...Cake

This is a social ride for all our members, with the focus on getting some gentle miles in the legs at the end of the season – and cake.

Two routes planned – probably via the Bluebird at Coniston – with a bail out option after the cake stop, and potentially  two different routes to get there on offer. All standards of rider very welcome.

 

Did I mention there will be cake??.

Get on it!

Results

A fantastic afternoon of racing in the grottiest of weather; battling wind and rain…

Well done to all our competitors and hardy marshals in toughing it out, especially those that chose today as their first ever triathlon experience.   We even had a dead heat.  AMAZING!!

There were some extremely tight results and considering the weather, some great times too.  Well done everyone!

Special mention to our winners: guests Sarah Atkinson and Jasmine Dean in the Ladies Long and Short Course events (Jasmine’s first ever triathlon at 16!), and Mike Gregory & Captain Steve Tyson – in a dead heat with Steven Dobson, brought it home for UTC in the Men’s races.

EVENTS CALENDAR

Want to cheer on your club mates, but too many events to keep track of…?  Wondering which events to have a go at and keep track of them in your own calendar??

No problem, Julie and Annaliese have done some hard yakka and prepared a calendar of races across the season which you can then download to your own phone/tablet/whatever…

Entered one that’s not on here, let us know at ulverstontriclub@gmail.com.

All the deets are here…

Try a Tri

UTC is laying on its 3rd season of Try a Tri!

So if you or anyone you know is interested in getting into sport, or trying something different (as long as it’s triathlon!), come along and give it a go.  We’ve all had to start somewhere and there’s room for everyone in our welcoming club, with brilliant coached sessions!

The focus is on female athletes aged 18-24, with the support of Tri England – which provides the potential for additional funding to encourage wider membership and training support for this group.

Sessions start from 13th June and the cost is only £35. The course covers 6 weeks of coached sessions, entry to the UTC Lakeland Ladies Sprint Triathlon, and a free t-shirt.  Bargain!

Details and link to registration here:

Duathlon 5 cancelled

Unfortunately Race 5 in the Winter Duathlon series (26/2/17) has had to be cancelled due to issues outside the Club’s control.  We will look at whether this can be re-arranged in due course and apologise to all entrants and marshals.  Refunds will be issued or the opportunity to roll forward to the next event.

AGM

A bumper crowd (standing room only!) gathered at the club pub on Monday 16th Jan for the Club’s Annual General Meeting.

We’re very pleased elect a new Committee for 2017 – thanks to Duncan, Aimee, Siobhan, Rachel, Euan & Paul for stepping up.  Thanks also to those offering to remain in their positions for another year – Dan, Josh  & Cian.

Thanks to Chris, Macca and Becca for their service to the Club on the Committee, which I’m sure will continue behind the scenes.

All the slides from the night can be found here:   utc-agm
