EETC Youth League ... three events to go!

The Youth League has been updated as of 3rd October showing some very close results at the top of the table with just 3 events remaining.


Can You Help?

We are currently looking for willing and enthusiastic volunteers to join the EETC Events Team, as Race Directors for the 2017 season.


What’s Involved? - Race Directors are required to initiate and oversee the delivery of our public events; Basildon Aquathlon and East Essex Kids Triathlon. One Race Director is required for each event.


We've had one volunteer so far but need one more race director to complete the team! Further details are available on request. All roles require the ability to work under own initiative whilst liaising with club committee when needed. Training/mentoring will be given wherever possible. There is already a well established committee presence behind every event for back up and support. The emphasis is very much on being part of the team that delivers.


Get in Touch - For more information or to volunteer your services email me at webmaster@east-essex-tri-club.co.uk


Thanks in advance .. we really can’t do it without you.


Mike Grout - EETC Events Team


EETC Hogg Hill Cycle Day

This year's Hogg Hill cycle day will be held on Sunday 9th October at Redbridge Cycle Centre. The afternoon will follow the same popular and successful format as in previous years with a coached session, hill climb, time trial, adult’s race and an elimination race for the youngsters! The track has been hired from 12pm so you can use the tack from this time however we do ask that TriStarts, Tristar 1 & Tristar 2’s are accompanied by an adult at all times

This is a free event open to all club members, adult, youth and tristar, and is our way of saying a huge thank you to everyone who has helped with the success of the club this year by marshalling and supporting us!

If you are planning to attend please email me paulcgammon@hotmail.com and let me know.


A few important notes:

This year I believe there will be a MOB Match duathlon held at the same venue in the morning so twice the fun for those keen enough to give both a go. Please keep an eye out for further details on here and facebook.

As always the Hill Climb and Time Trial are part of the club league so this is an excellent opportunity to grab a few last minute points!


Promoting Positive Parenting in Sport

How parents can help children enjoy participating in sport and perform to the best of their ability

Parents greatly influence a child’s experience in sport through the actions they display and the opportunities and feedback they provide to their child. However, sometimes it’s difficult to know what feedback to provide, what actions are the 'right' actions, and how best a parent can support the child. This webinar will help coaches and parents understand how best a parent can support a child to enjoy participating in sport and perform at their best.

So this year we want the trophy back and to show Tri Sport we really are the best club around!
For those who have not taken part before the format is (roughly) a 1 lap swim followed by a 5k run. Don't think you are not fast enough - the clue is in the name - we want a mob of members there!
Fast or slow you are all wanted to compete and do East Essex proud! There is no fee - the club picks up the cost and league points are available for those who have not done an aquathlon yet or need another event.
The swim will be one lap of tri farm lake followed by a 5k out and back run round the lake and towards Paper Mill lock. Oh and anyone taking spectators - would they be happy to time/marshal?

Triathletes can share the images or take screen shots, I am not looking to sell them.

Orion 15 - 2nd April 2016

Orion Harriers proudly presents the legendary ‘Orion 15’ – the 62nd running of this great race – voted in the top 50 UK races by ‘Runners World’ readers.

The race starts at 10:00am on 2nd April 2016 with the course taking runners through the ancient bridle paths and tracks of beautiful Epping Forest. There are some testing climbs not usually found in the ‘flat’ county of Essex and there is plenty of mud.

This year we have a new and improved course which takes in some new trails and new parts of the forest – so a PB is guaranteed!

We anticipate welcoming back the many runners who return year after year, but we also look forward to seeing those who are trying this long-established race for the first time. The race always throws up some interesting and challenging conditions, irrespective of the weather, and is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.

More information about the Orion 15 can be found on our website here: Orion Harriers.

A minimum donation of £10 is respectfully suggested

Deadline for entries is the 28th March and No entries on the day. Runners will have to collect their race numbers on the day from the Orion clubhouse. It is advised to arrive with plenty of time to collect your number and prepare for the race

This race demands a basic level of fitness - cut-off point of 10min per mile pace will be enforced at the half-way stage
