Club news and announcements

  • Winter Handicap invitation from TriAnglia 19th January 2019

    Gazelles have been invited to the 4th run of the Winter Handicaps 2018-2019 by TriAnglia

    How it works.....

    We use the two lap Norwich Triathlon 10k course for the 10k and just one lap for those running 5k.  Should anyone wish to run a 3.5k lap of the lake they can do that.

    Stop watches will be started at 9am, participants then start on the minute closes to their expected time so that they finish at 10:20 where we will have tea, coffee and biscuits available.  i.e if you thinkg it will take you 52 minutes you will start 52 minutes ahead of 10:20, which is 9:28am.

    Assistance is needed with timekeeping, starting runners, preparing flasks, capturing names at the finish, opening and closing the gate into the picnic meadow. To help out please contact Cedric, Rob or Di through training@tri-anglia.co.uk, ows@tri-anglia.co.uk or Karen Rix through facebook either by direct message of through our facebook group.

    Cost: FREE and tea, coffee and biscuits are available.  Please park in the Country Park's car parks, the revenue from the car parks pays for the up keep of the park that we use.  Tri-Anglia members get a significant discount on annual parking permits. 

    Course = http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2516548. The course is well known.  If you are new to the course and unsure of it, do find a fellow club mate to run with.
