TriHarman Norfolk Winter Challenge February 2022

Back in the winter of 2020/21 Ben Hunter-Watts did an incredible charity virtual ride across America, covering the equivalent of the 3000 mile West Coast to East Coast ride.

This year, to encourage our members back to their Swim/Bike/Run training the club will continue this virtual journey across the Atlantic back to Norwich. This is a massive 3500 mile challenge in the 28 days of February. I am sure our members training for marathons and long distance triathlons in 2022 will already be doing big miles, but the more who contribute the faster we will cross the water.

To join the challenge, TriHarman-Norfolk Triathlon Club members need only record their daily swim, bike, run/walk distances. They should then be reported to the club through the club Facebook page or e-mail if you don’t have Fb. The distances will be collated and updates posted through the month. You can measure your distances through any means, we trust you to report the correct distances.

We will keep you updated on the club progress through the Facebook page and news emails, contribute as much or as little as you do, everything will help speed us to the target.

Mini Duathlon Training Session 27 February 2022

We have the return of our training mini Duathlons, the first taking place 9am on Sunday 27th February at The Esplanade, Sheringham. These are training sessions designed for all abilities, taking the same format as previous years, a 1 ½ mile trail run on the cliffs, 6 mile road bike ride and a second run as the first. It is not a race, just a fast training session to practice your bike, run and transitions. You can do all or any part of the session. The weather will be cold so appropriate clothing is vital. Meet us there in time to set up for a 9am start.

Open Water Swim Training Weekend 14-15 May 2022

We will be back at the lake once the weather warms a little, usually starting the end of April or beginning of May. We plan to run an open water swim training weekend, 14th and 15th May, aimed at those new to open water swimming. This will have a pool session on the Saturday evening to learn your skills then into the lake the following morning. Full details will be released in due course but an early date for your diary.

Club Events 2022

We plan to target four events next season; the North Norfolk Triathlon in June, the Outlaw Half Holkham in July, the Nottingham Relays in August, and the Reef Triathlon in October. This should give something for everyone and an opportunity to race with plenty of club mates to support and encourage you.
