Celebrating our first birthday

We are celebrating a year of Tri & Run evolving from Vicky to Vicky and Lynda.  So, here’s a look back at some of the highlights of the last year.


Our first outing for a catch up after the end of lockdown one. It had to be in the hills.
The fact that there were no races meant that we needed to set up a challenge for our athletes. We ended up with a great 20 miler, with some flat and quite a bit of hill work. Needless to say there were food stations and a lot of cake. 🍰
With some triathlons starting back in the summer of 2020, we had goals for our athletes to focus on. With limited ‘B’ races to practice, we did our own versions of swim, bike, run…and combinations of the three!

Our athletes are starting to get taste for some undulating runs, so we have at least one monthly adventure, often with some sort of challenge to complete, in all weather conditions!

2021 – So far

Kick Start 2021

Entering another lockdown in January we instigated Kick Start 2021 – an open challenge for anyone to sign up, whether a triathlete, runner or duathlete.  This month-long challenge provided an opportunity for some competitive challenges against others and coached sessions – running or cycling (turbo). With over 60 individuals entering the challenge there were many smiles and laughs within a virtual social environment.

Spring out of lockdown

The easing of lockdown restrictions and possible restart of races prompted an Easter 🐣 promotion.  Training plans were adjusted to support more athletes in getting ‘race-fit’ for the summer season.

Go Tri Knutsford

In collaboration with the British Triathlon Federation we are in the process of supporting a group of Go Tri athletes over 6 sessions.  We’re covering skills for swim, bike, run as well as thinking about racing.  Sessions are being held virtually as well as face to face. See https://www.gotri.org for more information.

Planning ahead

We have a number of adventures planned for the next few months. The adventures are open to our Silver and Gold athletes and we have a Bronze package if you want to sign up to a personalised training plan.
