March 2019 Update

Dear Members,

There are a few things to announce this month, including (drum roll please…)

Hathersage Hilly 2019

The date for Hathersage Hilly Triathlon has been announced as Sunday 21 July 2019. Please save the date in your diaries as we will need plenty of volunteers over the weekend to make sure the event is a success, including upwards of 60 volunteers for race day itself.

If this is your first year in Sheffield Triathlon Club, you are more than welcome to take part (maybe you could persuade a friend or family member to volunteer on your behalf), but for all others we would really appreciate the help if you can spare the time. It really is the volunteers that make this event so special. We expect to open entries early March 2019.

As with 2018 we will be giving two free places to charities. Please let us know any suggestions for charities to support as we will be putting these out to vote shortly.

Kit Order Window

Hopefully plenty of you got the chance during our Kit Sample Evening or at the recent Westfield Aquathlon to try on some kit for sizing. The kit order window is open until Monday 11 March, so please put your orders in soon if you want to catch this window. Take a look at the Club Kit page for more details:

Note: This Kit Order Window is for Cycling/Running/Tri Kit (non-Leisure wear), projected delivery end of May 2019.

Graves Sunday Swim

The addition of an extra weekend Swim session at Graves has been a great success, but the last Graves Sunday Swim for a while will be on Sunday 31 March 2019 as we make way for other clubs and start to prepare for the Open Water swims to start April/May 2019.

The Saturday Graves Swim sessions will continue as normal for now.
