Triathlon club secures prestigious award

EVESHAM Vale Triathletes are celebrating after winning the prestigious West Midlands Club of the Year 2012 title.

The award was presented to the club because of its success in raising the profile of triathlon locally, its growth in membership and its commitment to offering training at all ability levels.

“We are thrilled to accept the award,” said Sara Turner, who received it from Rosa Teale of Triathlon West Midlands at a ceremony at the weekend.

“The club is thriving with members competing at all levels and we have seen huge interest in our junior training programme.”

Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and offers the opportunity to compete at many different distances, starting from 250m pool swims to longer open water swims, followed by a bike then run, but there are also a growing number of duathlon - run/bike/run - races.

The club offers weekly coached swimming sessions at Evesham Leisure Centre, a variety of other coached bike and run sessions and are planning to hold a local event next year.

In the summer the club hosts open water swimming sessions at Ragley Hall, which are open to non-members and non-triathletes.

If you are interested in joining contact Sara on 07507 896388 or visit www.eveshamvaletriathletes.co.uk. The club is offering a free swim session in December to anyone interested in coming along.
