These ‘races’ are intended to supplement your training with race simulations to enable the practice of transitions and to raise the intensity of training for short workouts.
They are great for those new to the sport who would like to try out one discipline after another in a friendly club environment.
We offer series prizes to members, that are presented at our annual awards presentation. To qualify for series prizes you must complete 3 of the duathlons or 2 of the aquathlons & be a current STC member.
This year we will be offering a prize of free 2019 membership to volunteers in the series. If you volunteer at a minimum of one of the events, you will be entered in to a draw, with the winner chosen at the AGM in Autumn.
Guests can take part in the races, but are not eligible for the series. There is an additional fee of £2 for guests for each race to cover insurance.
If you do wish to enter the whole series, it is a mandatory requirement that you are a full club member. This ensures that liabilities are satisfactorily covered etc.
This year we are offering a special price for club members who would like to do all the races in the series – for £15 you can do all the aquathlons and duathlons.
