Due to the amount of weeds at the water sports entrance of the lake we have decided to move down to the Visitors Centre of the lake for the remaining couple of sessions.
The Junior lake swimming sessions have now ended so no Juniors are permitted to swim in the lake during the club sessions.
Note also the entrance gate will now close at 8pm instead of 9pm.
Another brilliant race at Druridge Bay. The weeds in the lake still seemed to freak some of the competitors out despite clearing 99% of them away just an hour before the race.
The Juniors came out on top again with Dan Dixon winning for the men and Freya Smith winning for the women but everyone won at the end with a full buffet, tea and coffee for all the competitors, spectators and marshals making it a really good social event.
We are pleased to announce we will be hosting a GoTri Triathlon on Thursday the 28th July at Druridge Bay Country Park. Ideal for anyone new to triathlon looking to take part in their first fun, relaxed event. The race will start at 7pm, distances are as follows 300m swim, 10km bike and 2.5km run and a bargain at only £5. To enter follow the link below.
Another fantastic day of racing. The threat of rain put a few people off coming but the 26 that raced had a fabulous time. The marshals were great, cheering everyone on.
The race was put on to give people a bit of practice racing open water before their big races on bank holiday weekend. 8 of the racers are off to Lisbon to the European Tri Champs and a fair few of the other off to Nottingham to compete in the sprint or half iron distance races.
Due to the cold water, the swim was kept close to shore and became a 2 x 200m lap swim to make the 400m. The bike was a quick blast up to Widdrington roundabout and back and the run was a single lap of the lake.
The winners of the male and female races were in the lead from start to finish but the minor places were hotly contested with the positions changing numerous times.
- Dan Dixon 31:56
- Kris Whitelaw 34:01
- James Morris 34:11
- Bethan Nitch 40:22
- Kim Redpath 40:56
- Tracey Sample 41:52

Hello everyone, Alnwick Tri is once again holding a GoTri Duathlon at Druridge Bay on the Sunday the 24th of April. It will be great for anyone wanting to attempt their first Duathlon or anyone wanting to kick start the 2016 season.

On Thursday 19th May, Alnwick Tri Club will host a Super sprint triathlon in the evening.
with a 400m swim, 6 mile bike and 2.6k run, it is an ideal mid week training race that does not effect your training or taper to events the following weekend.
We are hosting this race as there are no open water races in the region before some of the big races such as European and world qualifiers, Outlaw Half and Lisbon European Champs.
It gives the opportunity to test out race preparation and open water training in a very small field of less than 50 people run along our very relaxed lines. Cheap and cheerful. Lay your bike on the grass in transition. £10 per entry if you are a home nations member.
Whilst it is not a problem being slow on the bike or the run, we are asking that you do not enter the race if you have not swum open water before 2016 or if your current pool swim time is longer than 9 minutes. This is because the water will be very cold and the potential for hypothermia on the bike is too high. If you do enter and the you are still swimming at 10 min, you will be pulled out of the water and your race will be over.
Alnwick Tri hosts a number of GoTri events for beginners throughout the year which anyone can enter.
