Alnwick Tri is proud to have had a busy Go Tri year in 2022 having successfully put on a series of monthly events starting with a duathlon at Druridge Bay Country Park in May, then aquathlons in June and July - again at the Country Park, a coached open water swim at the beginning of September in the Coquet estuary which was a partial warm-up to a triathlon in the middle of September with the swim in the estuary, the bike on quiet roads between Amble and Warkworth, and the run on Amble Braid.
The club now has plans to build upon these monthly events in 2 exciting ways. We hope to turn the triathlon into a full sprint triathlon that will continue the tradition of the Alnwick Sprint Triathlon - watch this space. And with support from Triathlon England we are very pleased to announce that we are organising a monthly "GO TRI Local" aimed at people that are brand new to swim, bike and run and looking to take their first steps in a safe and enjoyable environment. These events will take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7pm in the Amble area. They are ideal for complete beginners and all with an affordable £5 entry fee. The events will build through a calendar year starting in October. The first 6 events (October - March) will take place at Amble Links Caravan Park. These will offer coached pool swimming, static bike and treadmill exercise in the adjacent gym, and run sessions using the coastal links immediately outside the venue. The emphasis at these sessions will be on participation and increasing duration and intensity of exercise. All activities will be available for the whole session allowing participants to do whatever they wanted to that day. This might be a 15 minute swim, leisurely towel down and change, before a 20 minute guided walk-run outside or on the treadmill.
Entries are now open for the first 3 events.
Note there will be a session on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Spaces are limited. If you would like to be added to the reserve list then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
