Glasgow Tri Newsletter 80

Dear members,

For those who have attended or have been thinking of attending our spin class – as you may be aware there are a limited number who can attend due to there being a specific number of spin bikes. To prevent anyone making a wasted trip (or avoiding making the trip in case they don’t get a bike), we are trying out a booking system, all you have to do is sign up for the session in advance at this link and turn up and pay on the night. We are trialling this for one week to see how it goes, the link has also been put on facebook.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Glasgow Triathlon Club Annual Christmas Party on Thursday 3rd December at Sloans Ballroom in Argyll Arcade (just off Argyll Street). £35.00 pp for dinner, a ceilidh and the GTC annual awards The link through which to pay and reserve your spot can be found here.

A new run session will be taking place on Monday nights from Westerton Tennis Club at 7.30pm. The format will be similar to the Thursday session run and the cost will be £3. The session is at the request of Westerton tennis club but GTC members are welcome. Just to clarify, Westerton tennis club is beside Westerton train station, it is NOT the same as the location for the spin class (which is Western Tennis Club).

There was a great turnout again for our second rugged run, this time on the foggy southside. Luckily upon ascending we popped out into the sunshine when heading up to Neilston Pad. The next rugged run will be back to the northside on 31st October, keep an eye on Facebook and the newsletter for details.

Stephen MacIntyre and Conor McErlean were taking part in the Antonine Trail Race half marathon at the weekend. This is a challenging and fairly hilly course, with Conor coming in at 1:44:35 and Stephen (in a course best by over 4 minutes) in 1:47:49.

Chris White and Raymond Loughran were racing at the Squiggly Bridge 5km on Wednesday, with Chris running 19:52 and Ray 24:26 (course best). Parkrunning at the weekend @ Pollok parkrun were Tom McGuinness (19:56), Stuart McGibbon (21:46) and Bill Rees (22:22); and @ Springburn parkrun was John Paul Murphy, running a PB (by 34s) of 19:59.

That’s all from me!

Coach Jo
