Mob Match 15/09/12 - *UPDATED*


MB MATCH 2012
It's Annual 'Mob Match' time again! This is a local inter-club Swim (1k Open Water) Run (5k), which is usually a season-closer for most people (and remember this is also an EETC  league swim event so counts towards your league points!). It's hosted by Blackwater Tri again this year. Traditionally (and again this year) the Club will pay participants entry fees as a 'thank-you' for your assistance this year. Please note that it's a sanctioned event this year (i.e. covered by BTF) so bring your BTF Licence. I'm afraid it's going to be £3 for a day licence for those without (sorry), and ridicule for those who leave their licence at home and have to pay £3 on the day. Please bring your Entry and Waiver (required to swim in this lake) forms on the day to save queueing time (Entry Form - HERE, Waiver - HERE )
PLEASE  EMAIL IN ADVANCE IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND - chris@east-essex-tri-club.co.uk

Saturday 15th September 2012  At Blackwater Sailing Club, Basin Road, Heybridge, Maldon, Essex CM9 4SD. Parking in public car park (1/2 mile past SC on right). Entry fee £5.00
Registration from 6.30am - 1st Wave start 7.30am, 2nd Wave start 8am, 3rd Wave (if needed) 8.30am
Wetsuits must be worn. There will be first aid cover on the day from St John’s Ambulance
All competitors will be required to fill out a disclaimer (available on day) before the event starts; No form filled out, No race.
Please make sure you bring your BTF Membership card, if you do not have it with you on the day, then you will be required to purchase a day licence from us at registration £3

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 all our members who have helped with the success of the club this year by marshalling and supporting us!
All we ask is if you could let Paul Gammon know asap if you plan to attend.

Enduroman Double Ironman 2012

From Steven Pallett via East Essex Triathlon Club @ Facebook:
"Lee Runciman is doing a double Ironman event (Double Enduroman) this weekend, starting Saturday 9th June. Distances are 4.8m swim, 232m bike and 52m run. Gulp! myself and Gemma Kemp are supporting this stupid challenge and I'll be tweeting as the race unfolds. Don't forget to be following @EastEssexTri on twitter for regular updates. I might post the odd thing here as well if time allows. I'm sure that incoming messages of support would be warmly received by Lee if you get a moment during the race. Cheers! Steve"

I'm sure after the concept of doing to Iron distance events in one weekend has sunk in you'll all be wishing Lee and his crew the best of Essex luck for this totally insane event!

Good Luck Lee!

Tri a Trier

Congratulations to Ellie Davies - this months recipient of the Tri-a-Trier award. This is an award presented to the club member who in the coaches opinion has tried their hardest during training sessions and provided a positive contribution to the club. This is an award which we haven't been presenting for the last few months as we adjusted to life in the Basildon Sporting Village - but the coaches believe with the growing numbers of members attending our sessions it is an important monthly award to help maintain and recognise the positive contribution so many members give to the club.

So well done Ellie - keep up the good work!!

Monday Night Swimming

As the number of people attending the Monday night swim sessions at Runnymede increase the committee have agreed to implement the following changes.

  • Non members are welcome to continue swimming on Monday night but shall be encouraged to join after two visits to Monday night swim sessions.
  • All swimmers should be at Runnymede and registered to swim by 8:55pm. This will allow the coaches time to spread swimmers into each lane and minimise the disruption to the coached sessions.
