Congratulations to Eric & his Triathlon organising committee on winning the ‘Most Enjoyable Event of the Year’ at the Triathlon Scotland awards this afternoon, well deserved!
This was a great achievement for the club and a special thanks must go to Eric along with his merry band of helpers and also to all those who helped out on the day.
Reasons cited for our win included friendly and helpful marshals throughout, a clear and informative pre-race briefing. and great weather! The piper piping contestants to the race start was noted as a enjoyable touch and of course the spread of home baking afterwards was greatly appreciated.
Also at the TriScotland Championship events of next year were announced. Although some of us have known for some time, we were unable to publicize that the Monikie Triathlon is to be the Triscotland Sprint Triathlon of the 2016. The date for the event is Sunday 10th July and it would be great if you could all get that in your diary as we will be needing many helping hands on the day and it would also be good to have a number of members competing too.
Further details of Exchange 2015 day (as it’s called) can be found here with the inspiring video well worth a watch. (Only managed to spot our own Robert Harrison so far but there may be more of you starring . . . . )
