A Day in the Lake's - 28th June 2015
Well done to our members who took part in the A Day in the Lakes triathlon at Ullswater, a 1.2 mile swim, 57 mile bike ride over the Kirkstone Pass and finally a 12.5 mile (mostly) fell run. David Cole was our first member home in a fantastic time of 05:45:59, next we had James Hague in 06:28:18 and for the woman we had Diane Jobson in a time of 07:48:23. added 01-07-15

  Cleveland Steelman Race Information - Here

We are not quite half way through the season but many of you have made your mark in this years’ series.  James Hague is leading the men followed by Tony Main and Stephen Oysten.  However the really big scores are in the ladies series where Tricia Bell is sweeping all before her.  Kay Stokes is in second place but a special mention must go to Paige McLeod who is in third place and still a junior.
The scores so far can be seen on the link above.  It is all likely to change again due to the many events that are taking place over the next few weeks. updated 01-07-15

Grand prix - The Rules!
There are a lot of new members in the club who may not know about our grand prix series, and as we have tweaked the rules a bit then we thought it best to clarify matters:

  1. Points are awarded on the basis of your finishing time with respect to the winning time both male and female. 
  2. Points scored in ironman events are doubled.  This is in recognition of the huge time and energy commitment that this requires, and the fact that this makes it much more difficult to fit in “normal” events.   The ironman does not have to be local or even in the UK.  All we ask is that you enter as a member of Cleveland Triathlon Club and you provide details of the race and the results.
  3. Your best five results in the season count towards your final score.  The top three in each age group will qualify for prizes that are usually awarded at the AGM. 
  4. To qualify for a prize you must have completed a minimum of three events.

 If you are entering (or have entered) a local event that is not currently listed on the grand prix schedule and you want it to be included then please drop us an e-mail for consideration. added 30-04-14

  IMPORTANT: Club Membership
Now the membership is up and running can you all make sure you have renewed your membership, to continue to receive subsidized swimming sessions. Please also make sure that you have the correct e-mail address and phone number in case we need to contact you about pool closures etc.
It is a condition of membership within Cleveland Triathlon Club that ALL members marshal one of our events. Year after year it is the same people turning up to help, many of whom are not even club members. We would appreciate that once you have made your selection for the event you are willing to marshal you honor that commitment. Please be considerate to the event organisers who already have a hard enough job to do with out being let down at the last minute.
The cost of membership and entry fee's for events are kept low because of voluntary helpers, if we have to start paying for marshals the membership and event entry fees will increase.
