We’ve had some interest in a training get-together on the public holiday on Thursday. There will be an informal run/swim at Husky beach for anyone who is interested. Hopefully the coffee van will be open when we’re done.
No registration or formalities, just come along. Some of us want to do a longer swim so suggested start times are as follows.
WHAT: Informal swim/run. Pick your distance..
DATE: Thursday Jan 26.
TIME: 7:30 for 2km swim, 7:50-8am for 1km (Just be ready to join in for the second lap.)
Run roughly 8:15-8:30.
WHERE: North end of the main beach at Huskisson. Meet near the shower across from the toilets.
SUMMER BREWERY RUN
Next Wednesday is Feb 1 so that means it’s time for the next Summer Brewery Run. This month we’re back to the usual run from outside JB Brewery in the Woollamia Industrial Estate.
Come along for the run, drinks or both. The run will happen rain, hail or shine (maybe not hail) and we can have drinks under cover at the Brewery if the weather doesn’t behave.
Usual deal: Arrive in time for a 6pm start with a run of approx 6km (options to shorten the run if needed).
Exciting news is that we have also been contacted by Elite Energy about a special Brewery Run in the lead-up to Big Husky at the end of the month. Keep an eye out for confirmation and details.
FEBRUARY GROUP TRAINING
We’ll also be back to Iluka this month for group training. The good news is that it will be on Sunday February 20 – perfect for a final tune-up for Big Husky the following weekend.
Marty and Elisha will also be back to run the juniors training event after a great turn-out last time the juniors raced at Iluka in November.
Both the adults and juniors will be a triathlon format with longer and short course options available.
We’ll send out a registration link closer to the event but keep the date free!
WHAT: Triathlon group training. Options for shorter courses or just do the swim, bike or run.
WHEN: Sunday Feb 20, 7:45 for adults, juniors around 9:15am.
WHERE: Iluka car park in Booderee National Park.
With race season hitting full swing, here’s a reminder to sign up for Batemans Bay and Wollongong to ensure JB takes out its 4th Interclub Series title. We’ve got a good lead but it’s far from wrapped up yet.
Even more importantly, let’s start thinking about Club Championships in Forster at the end of the season. No club in our division has EVER won the Interclub Series AND Club Championships in the same year. Time to change that!
We have gone close to winning Club Champs many times, but we just don’t have enough people on race day to make it happen. Please help us show the quality and commitment of our club.
Chat to your mates about car pooling and accommodation sharing and register now. May will come around much faster than we think it will!
*** Don’t forget that all financial JB Tri members are eligible for a generous discount from Elite Energy for the events it runs in the Interclub Series. Just hit the link below for a code if you’re entering Big Husky, Batemans Bay or Wollongong. Don’t forget that you need the code BEFORE you fill out the rego form.
As we mentioned earlier, we’ve had a couple of queries about the next uniform order. If there is sufficient interest, we can open up orders again in time for Club Championships. Mandy Meredith is our uniforms co-ordinator so please get in touch with her if you have any questions or potential orders. When we have sufficient interest, Mandy can liaise with Catfish to get the ball rolling.
In the meantime, don’t forget there is some club kit currently available at the JB Tri online store. Just click on the link below to check it out and see what to put on your list for the next order if what you want is currently unavailable.
