Sun 22 July - come and support our A & T Ironmen!
On Sunday 22 July 5 of our members will be taking part in Ironman UK. The race starts at Pennington Flash at 6am, followed by a 112 mile bike ride around Horwich/Rivington area moving onto a marathon route in and around Bolton. The finish is at Bolton Town Hall.
For those who haven't been before, the whole event is fantastic to watch and despite lots of roads being closed it is surprisingly easy to move around the course. Lots of people cycled around the course last year which was is the easiest way to get about but Alix and I drove and didn't have any problems with parking or access.
It would be great to get a good turn out of A&T support for Terry, Neil, Anthony, Mike and Dan. We are suggesting that A&T ers wear their club colours to spectate in so the lads will be able to spot us through their sweat and tears!
I'm going on holiday next week and won't be back until late on Saturday night. However, in my absence, Dale, Kim and Alex will be around to answer any queries about the route and times and where people can gather for a good spectating position. So any questions, fire them towards those 3!
13 days to go boys...don't fall off, drown, trip up, kiss anyone with a cold....
