Velo et Course

MERSEY TRI MEMBERS      **** Velo et Course ****   Saturday, 11 February 2017

The second 'Velo et Course' race will take place at 11.00am on Saturday, 11 February 2017 at Arrowe Park, Wirral.

The race in October saw 10 teams compete and they all really enjoyed taking part in an event that is little bit different to the normal multi-sport stuff that we do - they will all recommend that you give this a go!

The details of the race, the team make-up, the type of bike you need, and how to enter are all on the Nifty Entries website at  https://merseytri.niftyentries.com/Velo-et-Course, plus a link to a video to give you an idea of Velo et Course racing.

There are places for 40 teams, so please follow the link, come and have a go, and support your club - we have over 400 members, it would be great to get 80 out racing together.  It's also probably one of the cheapest multi-sport races you'll ever do!!

St Annes 10 miler

We are bringing back a good old favourite on January 29th 2017 in Lytham St Annes.  This is an AAA officially measured 10 mile course, completely flat, so fast for a PB or ideal for a first attempt.  It is a lovely course along the Lytham Green by the coast and around the lovely Fairhaven Lake.  Medals and gifts for all. 

Ideal for those training for Spring half marathons or marathons. 

We really hope to see you there, please could you pass this around your clubs and help us launch this new (old) race!
