ANNOUNCEMENT – M3 and David Lloyd are proud to announce that we have put together an indoor novice race designed to act as a taster triathlon for our members who are working their way up to their first big event.
The event will take place in David Lloyd and will follow the format of a traditional Swim -> Bike -> Run. Athletes will swim 400m (16 lengths) of the pool before exiting and getting dried off and changed if necessary, then make their way to the spin studio for a 10km bike. Once finished on the bike, it’s over to the main studio where athletes will finish with a 2.5km treadmill run. Each leg of the event will be timed however we will not be timing the transitions. This allows the event to be nice and safe between each of the legs with no rushing around in the gym and should make for an enjoyable morning at David Lloyd.
The event is open to 45 athletes with 20 spots being made available to M3 members. This is a fantastic way to dip your feet into the world of triathlon without needing to go outside!
The event is on 12th March 2017, and will take part over the course of the morning with registration beginning at around 8:30 and finishing around lunch time. The price per entry is £15 with Hillcrest Housing Charity receiving a half of the entry fee.
Sign up is available at David Lloyd, registration forms will be at reception from around noon on Friday 24th Feb. If anyone has any questions please let me know and i’ll try to answer as quickly as possible. I’ll be at Gardyne Road each Thursday if you want to chat or shout at me…..
