Speed session tomorrow night if any members are interested. Meet at Weelsby Woods car park at 6.30pm. Format will be 10 x 1km with 3 mins recovery. You can opt to do as many reps as you wish and will give you specific interval training for improving your 5 and 10km times by making you more resilient. Hope to see you there tomorrow.
I have had a constructive meeting with David Scott and some members of the newly formed Cleethorpes Triathlon club at swimming tonight.
The session at Havelock pool is still booked under the name of Grimsby Tri club and can be attended by all members. Although I don’t agree with the formation of a new triathlon club, it is now a reality and we need to work together to allow triathlon in this area to flourish. Please show your support for the swim sessions so that they can continue as attendees are now having to pay £45 for the hour and we will secure this session with a £200 bond. I must stress that the continued success of the club is down to you the members supporting such events.
I feel it is timely that we hold our AGM and will propose a date over the next couple of days once a venue can be confirmed.
Many thanks to all the 25 members/participants who turned out for the final duathlon of 2016 and made the event worthwhile. Again thanks to Alison and Charlie Boardman for volunteering to marshal and a big thank-you to Alan Cook for setting out the course not just for last night but for the whole duathlon series and organising the buffet afterwards. Apologies to those newcomers who got lost due to the sign instructing them to turn left towards Wold Newton inadvertently falling down or was it sabotaged!
Look forward to seeing some of you at Louth tri this weekend and good luck for the rest of the season!
PS apologies if my adding up is wrong!
Best wishes Gary T

Believe it or not next Thursday is the final duathlon at the Click’em Inn, Binbrook. Last year we put on a buffet (funded by the club) after the event to support the pub and have a bit of a social gathering. Please let me know ASAP if you are going to attend and then we can confirm numbers for ordering food etc…Looking forward to your responses-message me at email@example.com or via facebook.
The secret is out! the school have now realised that we have been getting a free swim session on a Monday night. Historically it was given to us about 5 years ago when we agreed to let Havelock pupils train with us when some were preparing for a triathlon. The current rate is £36 per hour and this is due to increase to £45 per hour I believe come September. If members wish to continue with this then those attending will have to cough up the hire fee which could prove costly if only a few turn up. The club will stump up the £200 bond required but we cannot finance these individual sessions through club funds. I will have a look at various other options and would appreciate some of your feedback on a practical way forward.
Thanks in anticipation Gary
PS the penultimate duathlon is on Thursday 18th August so please try and support this event before the dark nights catch up with us again.
Please find a copy of results. You will have to apply a bit of maths to work out your own splits for the cycle and run as the times shown are actual running times. Many thanks to all competitors and marshalls-Richard Perry and John Cameron. A big thank you to Alan and Sarah Cook who set out the signage and equipment etc…without their time and effort these events would not happen. Look forward to seeing you all two weeks on Thursday.

What can I say… we’re gonna need more scaffold poles!
Fantastic turnout for the first Duathlon of the season with 30 runners and riders.
It was a great evening for the 1-10-1 course. Tom Sanigar romped home with an impressive 40:29 overall, closely followed by Sean Robinson who I think was hampered by the beard.
Here’s the results:
Apologies if I’ve got any names wrong, the time-sheet got a little sketchy to the end and I’m not sure if Dr Valentine is a real person but it sounds good 🙂
Just in case… here’s the original time-sheet.
As always, thanks to Alan and Sarah for organising the event and timekeeping, as well as to Karen H and Matt C for marshalling. Special thanks for Matt for the photos too, and to everyone who can to support and cheer us all on.
Looking forward to the next one already on May 12th
Just a quick reminder that this Thursday is the first duathlon of the new season (and the weather looks fair). Please be at the Click’em Inn, Binbrook by half past six so that you have sufficient time for checking in and getting your bike racked as we will need a prompt start at 7pm due to low light conditions this time of year. A gentle reminder that subs are now due and are £10 for the year so please bring this along with you-new members need to print off and bring the membership form with them with details for our records. We have been asking all competitors to donate £2 at these events which we put behind the bar in kind return for the pub letting us use their facilities. When you park PLEASE put your car as far back towards the right hand side as you come in as possible, and out the way of regular customers as we don’t want to upset the landlord! The event distance is likely to be a 1-10-1 (TBC) but maybe restricted to a time trial on the 10 mile route if weather/light is poor.
Can I stress that these duathlons are training events only and full adherence to the highway code and race brief is a prerequisite so that we maintain high standards of safety at all times.
Many thanks and see some of you on Thursday evening prompt!
