An AGM Update

Hi all,

We’ll continue to drip drip updates from the AGM as they are actioned and implemented. Including…

Well done on another fantastic Aquathlon!

The plaudits have been rolling in since Sunday, and they are well deserved: well done to our Events Coordinator and Race Director, Shahab on organising a fantastic race! And thank you very much to our marshals, without you the race cannot have been such an amazing success. The weather was very kind to us, and we repaid it’s faith in us tenfold: I will never get tired of people telling me what a great club we have and what a fantastic show we put on – take a bow team.

Congratulations to all the athletes who took part, there were some super quick times across the board. Well done to all the LFTCers who took part, you certainly answered the call to arms and I cannot wait to see where we are in the London League standings after Kath Braiser, Ellen Greaves, Harry Myers and Cecily Turner came third, first, first and third in their respective categories. Ellen took the overall female honours accompanied by Danny Russell, who finished the 400m swim and 5km run in under 23 minutes!

Full results available here. Pictures available here.

Race! Race! Race!

The SportPursuit Splash & Dash took place at West Reservoir and was a big success for the club. Many raced for the first time, there was a win for Ellen Greaves and plenty of team members generously volunteered their time to help make it work. Here are the results.


Our London League Aquathlon at the lido takes place on 7th October and entries are open! It’s a really great race (this will be the 5th!) – sign up here.
