Congratulations also go to those members competing in their first triathlon. Well done!

Thanks to the CPT supporters who weren't racing, Dawn, Louise and Derek Chitty.

With 40 members racing, this was our biggest turnout for a Club Championship race. There was a great atmosphere despite the rain and good to see the CPT kit in all it's glory.

Thursday night swim sessions

There has been an increasing problem with overcrowding at the Bridge during our Thursday swim. As well as being a potential health and safety issue, it doesn't always make for a fun session, so the Committee have been looking at ways of dealing with the problem.

The solution that we've come up with is to book Dulwich Prep (42 Alleyn Park, Dulwich, London SE21 7AA), which by all accounts is a lovely pool. The sessions start on Thursday 17 May - 20.00-21.00 - and will be coached by our very own Phil Taylor.

There is parking, and from the car park, please walk through a set of black gates and the entrance to the swimming pool is at the back of the building. The price per session is 4 or you can use your quarterly swims if you have already paid at The Bridge.

PLEASE NOTE that the Bridge session will still be running along side this, and we're working to confirm a new swim coach for these sessions ASAP. Swim sets will be provided for those who prefer to swim at The Bridge even if we haven't got a coach every week.

The additional pool facility has been booked on a trial basis, so it is important for the Committee to get feedback from all of you - positive and negative - so that we can assess how well this might be working and make any necessary adjustments along the way. Hopefully the additional pool facility will be a welcome addition to the training sessions on offer.

Southwater Relays

West Sussex - 2 September 2007

How can I explain the Southwater Triathlon to those that haven’t been?

In essence it’s an open water 400m swim followed by a steady single lap 18.5 km bike with an ‘undulating’ two lap 3.8km run.

But it’s much more than that. Southwater is special. It’s special for a number of reasons:

We normally have about 30 people doing this race but as the club is growing it would be great to get a few more. If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible - for all the above it fills up quickly. The more the merrier. You will need to pay CPT the entry fee of £23 each (BTA licenses - £3 refunded and there is a t-shirt for all competitors) and then we will allocate teams and send all the entries off in one go.

This year, depending on who puts their names down, we intend to enter not only the weird and wonderful but also competitive teams in as many categories as possible. The categories are: Male Junior, Male Senior, Male Vet, Female Junior, Female Senior, Female Vet & Mixed (min. one female).

Grab your places whilst you can. First to pay, first to play (and six people have said they want to do it before I’ve sent this out!)


CPT League

After much deliberation the Committee have put together a new Crystal Palace League System for 2007. Full details can be found on the Club League page.

To make updating the League easier for all involved. Please ensure you let Karen know which races you are doing so that the Race matrix can be kept up to date.

Club kit

The new order of kit has now arrived. Cathy also has a few bargain clearance items of Torelli kit.

See the Club kit page for more details.

Corus Kids of Steel Triathlon

Alex Ron's son Alex took part in his first triathlon, the Corus Kids of Steel Triathlon at Crystal Palace on 3 May. Alex completed the 60m swim, 1.8k cycle and 600m run in just over 20 minutes (he was so excited he forgot to stop his watch!). Alex has now done something his dad is yet to do, a triathlon!!

Ron says thanks to all the other CPT members who helped to make Alex's day, John P, Jon H, Andy W and Peter C.
