Senior Club Championships
Welcome to the 2023 Club Champ races. We do hope as many of you as possible will take part. It is a fun way of getting to compete alongside fellow club members and feel part of the CTC community.
This year we have decided to try something new!
Instead of numerous events and jokers, there will be one championship race to become the club champ in: triathlon, duathlon, swimming and biking! The running will be decided by the Hockey’s 5k series.
So, if you are first man or woman past the post in your age category (see categories below) you will be crowned champ! For the bike it will the fastest over the distance in the age category and for the run the highest point scorer over the series.
There will be a male and female winner for each of the above in the following age categories:
- Seniors 39 and under
- Vet 49 under
- Super vet 50 plus
The races are as follows so put them in your diaries now!:
(We have tried incredibly hard to avoid clashes with major events and qualifiers but apologise if we have been unable to avoid them all-there are so many!)
Box End Park, Bedford
The Tour of Essex
Duathlon (10% discount code AMB_BR10)
Triathlon* (10% discount code AMB_BR10)
( If we get enough club members entering, ATW will put on a separate wave for us so we all go off together!)
Hockey’s 5K series-(dates to follow soon).
Highest scoring over the series will be crowned the running title in each category.
(If you marshal at the home leg, you will receive maximum points)
In addition to these races and awards, you could be in with the chance to be crowned:
- Overall club champion*
- Most improved
- Best Long distance
- Best novice
- Best vet
(one male and female winner for these awards-no age categories)These awards are decided by the committee. We encourage you to post photos and race reports and shout out about your achievements so we know what you have been up to.
*To win the overall club champion, the committee will look at those members that have raced and represented the club over numerous disciplines, numerous times (in a combination of triathlon, bike events, running events, swim run/aquathlons…etc).
In addition there is one Club captain’s award (someone deserving that has done something incredible or helped in some way) and the president’s award.
At each of the nominated Championship events, we will endeavour to have the Club gazebo and a couple of flags present to be used as a gathering point and a place to leave your bags / excess(ive) kit. We would like to encourage you, your family and friends to join. Bringing along food and refreshments to share is actively encouraged as is lift sharing!
In addition, we will be organising a club social event after some of the races, so look out for details nearer the time.
We really look forward to seeing many of you racing these events in 2023.
Phil and Rachel, your Club Co-Captains
