OPEN WATER TRAINING

Open Water Training for 2012 kicks off again with Tri Northumberalnd at the QE2 Country park on 10th May and we'll be keeping you posted on what's happening with that. Wet suits are manatory so you'll need to get kitted out in advance.

We offer a "Try Before You Buy" service on Zone 3 wetsuits at these open water swimming sessions. Simply contact us in advance, with your measurements and we can arrange to bring along a wetsuit for you to trial. We'll be holding wet suit fit days prior the 10th May so keep in touch. You could also buy direct from our website if you prefer.

All wetsuit trial/fits are charged at £25 which is refundable if you buy a new wet suit from us.

Home Nations or not Home Nations?

When we ask if you are a 'Home Nations' member we mean are you a member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon. If you are you will enjoy a number of benefits, one of which is insurance. While competing at home or abroard you are covered and you won't need to purchase a day licence, which essentially is insurance for the day. For more information contact British Triathlon at http://www.britishtriathlon.org/join/ It's worth it, we think, and it's less expensive if you are already a member of a Triathlon Club.

Event Voulnteers

‎2012 is with us and Spring is just around the corner. Everyones minds are starting to focus on the season ahead and VO2Max Racing Events have another full calendar of events. There are 4 Senior Triathlons, 2 Duathlons and 1 Open Water Swim to look forward to and we are asking fo your help again.

The early season events are starting to fill up and we are expecting them to be full in the next few... weeks. We are kicking the season off in Morpeth with an event new to the calendar this year. Morpeth Duathlon will be a challenging event incorporating a superb bike leg winding its way through the Northumberland countryside. Based at Morpeth Rugby Club, we'll have full use of all the facilities there.

If you are not participating and you think you would like to get involved at any of the events listed below, can you please let us know. It is early to be committing to some of them, but if you could consider the first couple of events for now that would be great.

We are also looking for people who would like to get more involved in the running of the events and who would be willing to take on a more senior role on the day. If you are interested in that, please also let us know and we can then discuss what's involved.

Similar to last year, all volunteers will get an event shirt and will be fed and watered, but as an extra bonus this season, you'll be allowed a free entry into the event of your choice, after you've helped out at another. That would apply to all the events you help out with and would transfer to the 2013 season if you help out at Newbiggin Triathlon or Woodhorn Duathlon.

Thank you
