EETC Race Reports

Had a great race? Had a bad race? Had an epic event you would like to share with the rest of the club?


Well now you've got the place. We'd love to here all about your adventures and so would your fellow club mates. It doesn't have to be a work of literary genius, just an account of your event in your own words along with any photos you may have of the day.


Forward your race reports to webmaster@east-essex-tri-club.co.uk and we'll post them right here. If you can send a word file with the photos included all the better but if you're having trouble drop me a line and we'll see what we can do.
