Our second season has come and gone and Racetime Events continues to grow. In 2012 we introduced a new event in Leicestershire, the Leicester Sprint Triathlon at the state of the art venue of Leicester Grammar School, feedback was excellent from British Triathlon officials and competitors and this event is certain to grow in popularity. We also introduced a Junior triathlon to our Desford event which again received great feedback and was enjoyed by all.
2013 will see another new event with the Oakham adult and junior triathlon on the 30th June, with stunning views on the cycle section of the race this is another race that looks like being a great success.
We will also be introducing a slightly different format of open water triathlon with a Triathlon Time Trial format based at our Open Water facility in Leicestershire. More details to come on that one soon.
2012 was a busy year with the introduction of a new Open Water training facility in Leicestershire which was used by novices, elites and even Olympians!
We also started our own Race Team to try and support some local athletes, we had great support from sponsors and the team finished the season off with 7 wins, 3 x 2nd place and 4 x 3rd place with a handful of Age Group wins and a creditable 11th place at our first attempt at the National Relays.
We would like to say a massive thank you to our volunteers (we always need more! volunteers receive either a free entry into one of our races or we make a donation to our charity partner Macmillan on their behalf. They also get fed and watered and receive an event t-shirt).
Details of our 2013 Events (open for entries), Open Water venue, Race Team and Coaching packages can all be found on our website www.racetime-events.co.uk
A big thanks also to our sponsors who have supported both our events and Race Team: USN, POWERbreathe, 1BandID, Swimcam, Proskins, Frog Island Sports, Ashmei, Triaveyron, Aquasphere, Bonk, Sunwise and Greepers Laces.
