5km Handicap Competition 2020 - Final Results

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 5km Handicap Competition over November and December. The aim of the competition was to give everyone in the club, regardless of ability, an equal opportunity to compete, while having a bit of fun at the same time. I hope you enjoyed it and if you have 5 minutes to spare please do provide your feedback on the competition so that we can learn and improve:

The club has received some fantastic support for the competition from the following local businesses who have provided prizes for the top 10 placed members. 



Well done to everyone who got involved and the final results are shown below. There were some great improvements over the 8 weeks and congratulations to those who made the top ten and have won a prize! 


*Photos will be taken by running free when collecting this prize and shared with the relevant brand and via social media. The recipient of this prize will have the choice of accepting it or swapping it for the next placed prize. This will continue down the prize list until one of the winners accepts. The XMiles nutrition box will remain as a 1st place prize. 


As part of Week 8 it was nice to see the goals some of you have for the year ahead. Whatever your training needs are for 2021, the club will be here to support you. Whether it be through the many sessions we run in person or via virtual training, such as online sessions or challenges.

If you're looking to set yourself a specific challenge this year, completing your first tri, stepping up a distance or to get onto the podium, then why not look at having a plan to help you achieve your goals. The club has some fantastic coaches who have a wealth of advice they can offer to club members. So please don't be afraid to ask and share your goals so that the club can support you the best it can. 

A couple of the coaches also provide 1:1 coaching services outside of the club, which they have provided a short summary on below.
