British Triathlon Association – TRC affiliation for 2020
BTA’s affiliation fee is going up from £100 to £250 for 2020!. There is little justification for TRC to affiliate in 2020 unless the Membership can demonstrate that we have sufficient Members wanting to compete in Triathlons/Duathlons in 2020. If you want us to reconsider then you Triathletes need to get together and show the Committee that there are enough of you to warrant TRC affiliating in 2020. A quick poll on Thursday suggested the numbers are less than 10! (Individual BTA Membership which gives full insurance whilst training is discounted by £11 if you are in an affiliated Club)

TRC Xmas Dinner & Party – Friday 3rd January 2020
If you don’t want to miss out then you will need to contact Suzy Cundy and book your places with your money and menu choice as soon as possible. Club subsidised to £30 per head – full price £36 per head.
