Hi , apologies if the info is available but has there been any update on when you might start again , the last thing I've seen is that all events up to 4th July are cancelled ?🀞
Some photos from a drizzly Go-Tri event today at Green Park....
So these were the very noisy marshals at the corner on the run course last Wednesday. They were aiming to sling shot you by cheering. Thanks to those who still had the energy to hi 5 them. It made their evening!
Great event this morning. Really friendly atmosphere. Thanks to all the marshals who braved the cold and gave great encouragement to the competitors. Really fantastic cake at the end as well !!! My brother Dave and I will be back next year.
Many thanks for another superbly organised and friendly event at Gotri Reading. A tad cold and breezy, but could have been far worse πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
Very well done to all the GO TRI triathletes today and thank you Green Park, from your happy GO TRI Marshals.
Thanks for yet another friendly, superbly run event. However, I think I must jinx the weather...today wind and rain...my last event: freezing blizzard!!
Great event. And thank you to all the voluteneers! Nice friendly beginners event:-)

W O W - Women in Open Water

We (Georgia Merlin Triathlon Coaching & fellow coach Jennie Tribirdsport Triathlon Coaching & Sports Therapy) set up these sessions to introduce women to open water swimming in a really relaxed, safe and pressure-free environment. It's ideal for beginners and/or those who might be feeling nervous about giving it a try!

Our last session was a great success so we're hosting another, on Sunday 13th June at Beale Park Lake. See the details below for how to book on and find out more :-)

W O W - Women in Open Water

Due to the popularity of our last event, Jennie Tribirdsport Triathlon Coaching & Sports Therapy and I are holding another one, this time at the secluded and beautiful Beale Park Lake on Sunday 13th June 8am - 10am, Β£45 per person.

The benefits of open water swimming for physical and mental health have been prominent in the media in recent months, and Dr Michael Mosley includes it as part of his Channel 4 programme 21 Day Body Turnaround.

This is a group session for women who want to explore open water swimming in a safe, relaxed, female-only environment. Whether you want to conquer your fears, build confidence in the water, improve your stroke, learn specific open water skills or find out how you can work with your body and its natural cycles to make the most of your training, Jennie and I are here to help you. We are both experienced Level 2 diploma triathlon and open water coaches and swimmers, and we also like to have a laugh along the way. No discussion topic is off limits in these sessions!

To book onto the event, visit TeamApp here:

You just need to register to become a member, then access sessions, scroll to the WOW event, select it, then choose "Yes" and you will be booked on. We will send more info out about what to expect, what to bring and how to pay nearer the event date.

If you want more information, our details are on the attached flyer, so do get in touch if you want to chat about it first.

However, please do keep up your running & cycling, and we're thinking about how we might be able to host a virtual GO TRI challenge for those who are up for it!

We'll keep you posted. Stay strong & stay safe.

GO TRI Reading @ Green Park

Thanks all for your patience ... still waiting for the green light for August. Keep your fingers crossed!

In other news, you may have noticed that our website has been having a bit of a moment recently. We were due to upgrade anyway, so this has been a prompt ...

So I'm proud to announce our NEW website www.gotrigreenparkreading.info

Let us know what you think!

UPDATE - NEWS on 2020 EVENTS

SHORT VERSION!
- July duathlon cancelled :-(
- August triathlon not a triathlon - maybe a duathlon? Working on it
- September duathlon date change to 27th September

LONG VERSION:
We know you're all champing at the bit to get going with multisport events since the BTF announced that events could go ahead from 25th July. It's so important to us to deliver a safe and fun event, and we need to do that within the guidance from BTF. We're just not able to tick all the boxes and get everything in place by the 26th July (our next planned event) so we're going to have to cancel July I'm afraid.

Green Park have cancelled the Green Park Swim which has traditionally run concurrently with our August Triathlon. As a result, we are not able to hold the triathlon in its planned format on 19th August. We're so sad about it. We are hoping to be able to offer a duathlon instead, but need to get our plans & risk assessment in place & approved by both the venue & BTF before we can say that with certainty. We've emailed all our entrants to let them know. Watch this space.

We're going to have to change the date of the September GO TRI to 27th, due to other clashes that have since appeared since the chaos that COVID-19 has created - a true domino effect.

We're so sorry we've had to make these changes and cancellations :-(

Please all stay safe and well, and we hope you're managing to keep active. We'd love it if you shared your stories with us.

We're so looking forward to being back with all of you at GO TRI soon. Keeping everything crossed!

[05/31/20]   Today would have been our 3rd GO TRI since lockdown began. At the moment, as per British Triathlon guidance, GO TRI events are cancelled until 4th July.

However, now that we’re allowed outside for unlimited exercise (socially distanced of course!), we know a few of a our regular GO TRIers have completed their very own GO TRI duathlons.

We’d love it if you’d share your own GO TRI run/bike/run (or any variation?!) here, to keep us all motivated for the time when we can get back out and GO TRI together.

Don’t forget the cake afterwards πŸ˜‰

[03/26/20]   We hope you're all ok out there, getting your daily outside exercise safely and at a healthy distance.

It is with sadness, but somewhat inevitability, that we have had to cancel our March, April, May and June events. British Triathlon announced the cessation of all triathlon activity until the 30th June at the earliest.

Please be assured that if you have already entered, you can defer to an event in the future. Just pop us an email nearer the time, when we know when we'll be back up and running, and it will all be sorted for you.

We will also let all those know who've entered via email.

Look after yourselves and each other everyone x

GO TRI Reading at Green Park

Dear GO TRIers

Further to the recent government advice to avoid all unnecessary social contact and travel, our events for the foreseeable future are cancelled. Whilst ours does not count as a "mass gathering", we still feel that our events constitute a non-essential form of gathering and contact.

We will be happy to offer deferrals to those who have entered already, to future GO TRI events, once we are up and running again, if you so wish.

The most recent advice (bearing in mind this may change daily) states that outdoor exercise, at a distance from other people, is still permitted. You can carry on riding your bikes and running outside, please just take care of yourselves and be responsible and considerate to others. Maintaining a regular exercise routine and staying active will help boost your immune system too :-)

We will post an update when are events are back up and open.

In the meantime, best wishes to all and stay safe people.
