Aquathon 23rd Feb

Well done again to everyone who took part in our 1st Aquathon of 2014. We will be holding another in a few weeks time and the purpose of this one today was to give you a baseline or starting place to work from. It was great to see the weeks of swim training paying of and as for the running well it was just amazing.

a special thanks also to all the parent who came down to the running track to support all our athletes, I'm sure the children appreciated your support every bit as much as we did.

Well done again all & see you next Sunday morning,

NWTCJNR Club Aquathon 20th Feb

Morning everyone,
This sunday 23rd Feb we will be holding our 1st Club Aquathon. For those of you new to the sport an Aquathon is a swim followed by a run with the distance of each being set by your age (see table below for swim & run details). The purpose of our  Aquathon is to give the junior athlete a baseline to work from and to introduce them to this type of event. Most of the junior athletes have been swimming for a few months and have done a few run but not back to back. During 2014 the NWTC, other triathlon clubs in the northwest and Derry City Council will be introducing Aquathon races as part of Triathlon Ireland and Derry City Council sports development plans. We will help in this programme and in addition prepare our athlete for these races. Before you ask entry to the Aquathon is free :-) the junior athletes just have to pay their normal swim fee.

So Sunday morning bring your running gear as well if you want to take part in the Aquathon.
On Sunday Morning go into the…
