We plan to start adult open water swim training in Ladyburn lake, Druridge bay Country Park on Thursday the 18th May 2017 at 7pm. Junior sessions will commence at a later date (notification will be placed on the Junior facebook page).
The lake water needs to be tested and a clear test certificate received before any Alnwick tri club events take place.
Please print off the file attached and bring a signed copy to the lakeside on the first session you attend. This will speed up the process for the lakeside marshal who will be giving up their swim time so that others can participate.
Open Water Safety Rules and Code of Conduct 2017
British Triathlon are running a training course on open water swimming in Doncaster on the 14th May. We would love to send some members down as we feel this would be a great benefit to the club and the individuals.
The one day workshop is designed to help inform and educate individuals wishing to support safe open water swimming.
If interested, go to the thread on the Facebook members page or contact the committee secretary at stubruce66 [at] gmail [dot] com
An amazing day of racing in GoTri Northumberland at Amble
It was great to see some grudge matches with friends and family racing each other all adding to the atmosphere.
Amazing shout out to Heather Dickinson who is in the Super Vintage Age group (70+) who was up there mixing it with the youngsters.
The Senior winners were Steve Cowell, beating Chris Davison by 4 sec & a convincing win by Adele Armatige.
The Junior winners were James Carragher by only 6 seconds over Finlay Wilde & Hannah Johnson, who was only 2 sec quicker than Maddy Hall.
I also thought the Juniors were amazing. As the are too young to go out on the open road, they had to cycle three times round the 500m loop of hilly, slipperly, grass whilst avoiding the potholes. I’m sure that was much harder than the pan flat 3 miles of road the adults had to use.
Photos will be posted on our FB site soon.
Results are attached below and I hope we see you aging soon at another event

our races are centered around giving the competitors a brilliant experience and our coached sessions feel more like a social night out with some hard work and learning opportunities thrown in.
our coaches (level 1, 2 and 3) are some of the best in the region and the country and our volunteers are amazing.
the junior club is thriving and feels moe like a family.
We have 50% female members and 50% of our coaches are female. Talent for coaching is recognised no matter the age or sex of our club members.
We we might just be a little club in the north of England but we punch above our weight in the triathlon community.
well done every member of alnwick tri club for making our club the best.
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.
