Gosfield Sprint & Standard Races 2015: Results

Apologies for the delay in getting the official results out, this was caused by some checking required by the chip timing team who were out at another event on the Monday following the Gosfield race. This meant a slower response that we would like.

Now the all important results:

News: 30th August 2015

In this week’s News

Members News

A few members took part in the middle distance Vitruvian last Saturday at Rutland Water.  It was a very good, well organised event.  If you want to do a middle distance then it is definitely one for the list.

The swim is a two lap, Australian style (get out and back in again at end of lap) swim, with a two lap bike which has a few tester hills and the run being a double lap on a very flat course.

Some really good results from Club members.  Melissa Dowell came 2nd female overall and 1st in her age group.  Emma Tanner completed her first ever middle distance, John Golding came 10th in his age group and Anna Baldwin came 9th in hers!  Lots of pb’s.  All in all a successful race for the Club.

Q&A Social Evening – THIS FRIDAY

Venue : Panfield Village Hall, Kynaston Road, Panfield, Braintree, CM7 5BE

Starting at – 8pm.  Please arrive a bit earlier to get your drink and chat to other members.

Come and listen to Melissa, Brian and Ali talk about their triathlon experiences, how they got to be so good and it’s your chance to ask lots of questions.

Coffee, tea and biscuits provided.  Hope to see you there.

Parking is all on the main road, please park sensibly and respect the villagers!

Annual Club BBQ – 12th September at Tri Farm

Taking place this year at Tri Farm on 12th September.  Come along for a swim at around midday (if you fancy it), the bbq will start around 1.30pm – 2pm.  We are lucky enough to have ‘private’ access to Tri Farm when they close at 2pm.

A great opportunity to meet fellow members, have a chat over a burger in a bun and generally enjoy the afternoon with like minded triathletes!

Please email Anna Baldwin (or contact us through the form on the ‘join us’ page if you can make it.

Would be great to see lots of members there.

Cross Fit

Benjamin Hughes, a member of the Club, has asked us to let members know about the following:-

Strength and conditioning training is a great way to improve your overall performance in triathlons, building core strength and aerobic threshold. Crossfit offers a great mix of functional movements aimed at increasing strength, flexibility, coordination, stamina and agility. Cross fit Braintree would like to offer a great opportunity to all Born2Tri members.

CF Braintree would be very happy to offer a discount to the Born2Tri Members – our standard Foundation Course is done over 8 sessions / 4 weeks, and costs £45. (this takes you through all the major movements of Crossfit) For Born2Tri members, we would reduce this to £30, and chuck in a T-shirt (which we usually sell at £15) if they sign up to a Silver or Gold Membership following completion of their course. We are also offering a compressed Foundation Course, of 4 hours over two Saturdays (so basically first and third weeks of the month) – if the club got together 6 people, we would put the cost at £25 per person – our usual cost for the compressed course is £50 (min of 6 bookings) so this is a pretty hefty discount.

If you would like more information on Crossfit and CFB check them out on Facebook


The AGM will take place on Thursday, 29th October.  All members are welcome.  This is a good forum to put forward your suggestions on how you would like to see the Club develop.  Voting for a new Committee will take place before the AGM and be announced at this meeting.

Friday Night Technique Swim Sessions

To start again on Friday, 11th September, 8pm- 9pm.  Please email Steve Powell to book your place.

Warm Weather Winter Cycling Breaks

Message from Head Coach Pete :-

I am starting to plan some winter training in Denia, Spain, for the winter months. An opportunity to get some warmer winter miles in, bike and run.

Denia offers good roads flat, undulating and hilly. Something for everyone. The winter temperatures are normally 12 to 15degrees, warmer than the UK winter temperatures.

I am flexible with days of the week for this training, aiming for a long weekend period, 3 to 4 days.

Flights can cost between £130 to £160, with accommodation and vehicle hire costing between £250 to £275.

This Spanish Training is an opportunity to get away from the cold wind and rain for some (normally) dry sunny training. All standards and distances catered for.

Club Training Camp 2016

In previous years the Club has arranged Training weeks in Mallorca, which have been very well received and enjoyed by those attending. I would be looking to undertake the same enjoyable experience for 2016.

Provisional dates are; Saturday 16th to Saturday 23rd, Saturday 23rd to Saturday 30th Saturday 30th April to Saturday 7th May 2016.

If any of these dates are of interest, please contact Pete Bryan.
