2018 Club Grand Prix and Club Championship races

Club Grand Prix and Club Championships

We are running a club Grand Prix again in 2018. At the last AGM members asked us to run Grand Prix to encourage members to do events with their club mates and to encourage a bit of competition within the club. The committee have selected the following events for 2018. We have been requested to include a middle distance event which we have done. We have included 3 standard and 3 sprint distance races, a duathlon and an aquabike (swim/bike). They are listed below. We have tried to avoid the most expensive events. Most events get booked up well beforehand so get planning. Men and women will be scored separately

The scoring system will be 50 points for first club finisher, 45 for second, 40 for third, 39 for fourth, 38 for fifth, 37 for sixth and so on plus points for age group finish position in the whole race. If you finish 1st in your triathlon age group you get 40 - 1 = 39 points. If you finish 2nd in your age group you get 40 -2 = 38 points and so on. If you are 40th or below in age group you get 1 point. Triathlon age groups are in 5 year bands

For each member their 5 best scores from events will count

Training Plan for an Olympic Distance Triathlon

Maybe you are planning to do an An Olympic Distance Triathlon, also known as Standard Distance Triathlon, next year. It is a 1.5k swim, 40k bike and 10k run. Here is a 12 week plan to get you up to the required fitness for race day. Up until then, over the winter and spring, you need to build up your endurance and aerobic fitness by training at steady pace and gradually increasing distances. Also time spent perfecting your swim technique and doing some strength and conditioning work will both pay off later.
Good Luck 👍 Lukas Siska - Head Coach - Bolton Tri Club

Run Time Trials

Head Coach Lukas tried out a new format for run time trials over the autumn and winter. 800m/3200m/800m with 2:00 min rest intervals. The aim is to reduce the total time and to also run same or faster time for the second 800m. Here are the results. Look out for next time trials in approx 6 weeks time
