Greenwich Tritons are organising a team sprint duathlon relay race at the Velopark, 15 October. Four people per team, either all male, all female or two of each. It would be great if we could get a couple of teams together. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience and enjoy this brilliant venue and be part of a club team. In the first instance please contact email@example.com we also need someone to captain this event. For details: http://www.entrycentral.com/Greenwich-team-relay-duathlon

As I’m sure many of you know, parkrun takes place in parks all over London, the UK and the world at 0900 on Saturday mornings with new venues added regularly. Free to enter, after signing-up on line and getting your own barcode, parkrun offers a weekly timed 5K run. You can use this as part of a training plan, a way to measure progress or just as a great way to start the weekend. As a community based project it also values its volunteers, as we do!
To include your results in the newsletter please email Andrea (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details. A brief description of what you thought of the race and if you would recommend it to others would be great too, but not essential. There is no need to send results from Club races such as Summer League, Southern Athletics League and Start Fitness Metropolitan Cross Country League as these are gathered by the team captains / event managers.
