The next one, the one with the lines, is the 'Menu' button which shows you links to all the sections & pages in the site. The 'Megaphone' button is a link to the Club Forum and last but not least is the 'Facebook' button which takes you straight to the club Facebook page. Below that, in the yellow bar , are links to our public event pages but you can also access these, and all our other annual club events, via the 'Menu'. Above here, in 'What's On', and below here, in 'News', you'll find the latest info on all things East Essex Tri so be sure to check in frequently to stay up to date.

Here's Peter's latest round-up of EETC's weekend action!
Well done to all our juniors who raced at the weekend. Latest Youth and TriStar League standings, as well as a full set of events can be found found via the Junior League pages.
Please see links below for provisional marshal details. Check the list (Marshal_2) to see where you are and print letter (Marshal_1) to bring with on the day.
THERE ARE STILL TOO MANY GAPS!! - If you haven't volunteered to marshal please do so ASAP as our Triathlon England Official could deem the event unsafe to continue! Sorry to bang on about it but it really is important we ALL pull together as a club to ensure we can host the events that keep our club afloat.
We have now had over 250 entries and the race is showing as 'full'. However, there are still places for any East Essex TriStar or Youth who wants to take part in this event. Please join the Entry Central waiting list and include the club name - you will then receive an invitation to participate and pay

Just quick post to let everyone know that this year's adult Club Championships will be at the Dartford Bridge Triathlon on Sunday the 17th June 2018. Full details will follow in due course but the race will follow the usual sprint format with our own dedicated Club wave. Please do not enter on-line as entry will be via the Club. I appreciate that this race clashes with the Southend Triathlon but we have held the Club Championships at Datford for a number of years now and the location, the preference of a lake swim and closed roads has always worked well. They also hold a kids race on the same day which forms part of the junior club league. Full details of how to enter will appear on the Club website and the Club Facebook page shortly. Thank you
Please note that TriStars should enter on-line via the Bridge Web site (link can be found on the 2018 TriStar League). Youths will compete in the Sprit Tri alongside the adults in the East Essex dedicated wave. Entry for Youths will therefore be via East Essex and not on-line (details to follow)
Thank you to Janice and co for organising the first TT of 2018. We had a great turnout and some fantastic times. The times are now available on the link below and will be updated to club league in due course.

For those of you not familiar with the format this is the first of five swim time trials that make up the 'swim' section of the club league. There are three pool swims, at BSV, and two open water swims at Trifarm. The pool swims are all 400m and the open water swims around 1600m. These are a great benchmark to see how your swim training is progressing over the year as well as gaining you some all important points for the club league. Note these are 'time trials' and not races so you swim at your own pace and there's no winners or losers. The time trials at BSV take the place of the normal Thursday swim and are FREE to all adult and youth members. Swimmers will be allocated a lane of similiar pace and you will be required to swim eight lengths (@50m) or sixteen lengths if it's 25m (hopefully not!). Your lengths will be counted and time recorded by the volunteer timekeepers. If you would also like to help with the timekeeping, to allow everyone a chance to swim, please make it known on the night. As always we can't do these things without the help of volunteers. Once everyone has swum there may be some time for a free swim. Please ask if there's anything you'd like to know about the swim time trials: email@example.com or grab a coach at the next training session.
The Youth & TriStar Leagues have been updated with the latest information and are available via the main menu. These now include TriSport Epping's Aquathlon & Triathlon (TriStar Club Champs). Please note that there have been some minor changes to the Youth calendar to avoid event clash

Happy New Year everyone. What better way to start the new year than by renewing your membership!
Please do this via entry central at https://www.entrycentral.com/eetcmembership.
There is a £5 discount if you renew in January.
This year the basic membership fee does not include membership of England Athletics because they have increased their annual membership fee to £14 and the club will no longer be subsidising this. If you wish to take up membership of England Athletics via the club you will have to pay £14 on top of your basic club membership. All the membership options (with or without EA) are on the Entry Central website, please choose carefully. Please note, only those with EA membership will be eligible for club London marathon places.
Remember that when filling in medical conditions this will go on your membership card. We recommend you carry this with you when training, especially if you are out on your own. The details could help the emergency services help you, so please fill it in accurately and succinctly; 'Awesome', 'Balding' and 'old age' are not medical conditions! If you have none then leave it blank.
If you have any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org; we cannot properly monitor messages over Facebook, Facebook Messenger or Twitter so will only respond to emails.
Hope you all have an awesome 2018!
Every year, during January, we hold the East Essex Triathlon Club Annual General Meeting or AGM for short. This year the AGM will be held on Friday the 19th January, 2018 at Rayleigh Cricket Club, Rawreth Lane, SS11 8SP from 7.30pm for an 8.00 pm start. At this meeting the Chairman and members of the committee will give a brief outline of the club's activities over the previous year, highlighting many of the inspiring individual and team achievements followed by a round up from the club treasurer who gives a brief outline of the club's accounts including income and expenditure over the previous year. There's also the opportunity for members to ask questions about any or all of the above. We finish off with the current committee standing down before the new committee is elected for 2018. All members are actively encouraged to attend and to help us achieve this the committee have very kindly agreed to offer a free bar and pizza delivery. That to me sounds like a great incentive to come along. Anyway we hope to see as many of you as possible on the 19th January. Thanks very much, Ian.
