IRC T2 Triathlon Championships (Nationals)
Congratulations to MASCís Daniel Dixon on his success at these championships.
Daniel competed at Holme Point, Nottingham, for the North East Triathlon Team in the Tristar 2 category (11/12 years).
An open water swim of 300m followed by a 5000m cycle and 1800m run, all based around the rowing lake.
Daniel enjoyed a good swim leaving the water in 2nd place. After a slick transition he set out on the bike, quickly catching the leader and taking the lead. he continued to increase the distance between himself and the chasing pack throughout the cycle ride and after another quick transition he was out on the run with a 25 second advantage, which he maintained to the finish to take the title.
Well done Daniel from all at MASC.
Summer Sessions Update
As the summer holidays approach, just a few pieces of information for all swimmers.
Throughout August ALL Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning sessions will be cancelled.
Also the Sunday stroke development sessions are cancelled throughout the summer holidays as there are not sufficient volunteer coaches to cover these sessions.
Our Head Coach would like all swimmers to have a complete break from swimming for 2 consecutive weeks over the summer holiday. That could be during a family holiday (and that means you should not be doing any swimming other than fun swimming while you are away) or just deciding on which 2 weeks you will choose not to come to the pool if you are not going away. The club will continue to run sessions throughout the summer so that nobody is forced to take more than a fortnight out of the water, but the swimmers have been working hard and it is important to have some time away from training to prepare properly for next season.
Details for the Richmond Dales gala on 20th and 21st September along with advance noticew of forth coming galas are now on our Gala pages.
