Limited time only. Must order before 5th March.
The new online Corps Cycling and Triathlon clothing Shop is now open. The shop will close promptly at 1800 on 05 March 17.
How it works:
- You decide what items you want.
- You pay CLOSE attention to the very specific sizing guide (returns of ill fitting items is a nightmare due to product being made to order).
- You select items and pay directly to RaceSkin including postage.
- A week prior to the shop closing I get a run down of current orders to ensure we have hit minimums, most items is five so we don’t see this being too much of an issue. No difference between male/female minimums – five total to count of either!
a. If minimum not hit I’ll promote the sale of more or inform the individuals that they will unfortunately be refunded on this occasion.
b. If all quota hit we are good to go.
- Store will close and order will be fulfilled.
- Items will be dispatched within 5 weeks direct to you from RaceSkin. (Expected first week of April).
- We wear kit with pride and bag podiums, PBs and memories just for fun!!
We strive to get anyone out there who wants to move towards their goals
Very much a sport for all, triathlon age group racing ranges from 16 to 80 and, as an inclusive club we work hard to help people achieve their targets, whatever they may be.
Exponential growth in 2016
Triathlon as a Corps sport has powered ahead in 2016. It’s attractive precisely because its gruelling, demanding and challenging. Whether competing at home or in exotic locations overseas and come rain or shine, you’ll feel drained and exhilarated in equal measures,
It’s great for developing self-belief and determination and of course improving fitness in a way that few other sports can.
Having to fuse three disciplines into one is not for the feint hearted but for those who are prepared to get on their bike, swim not sink and run for their life, the triathlon challenge awaits. Why not get in touch now.
We try to get an accurate picture of how people are doing by charting their progress.
As a Corps we always aim to bring teams together for each of the Army Triathlon Associations (ATA) Race series events. Starting with Pool based sprints early season, moving through to 3/4 and Standard distances mid season and ending with a Triathlon Relay event, the racing season offers something for everyone.
Corps Teams are generated using results from our own Corps Championships (held annually at 21 Signal Regiment in Colerne) as well as from other events. To some extent we rely on athletes letting us know what they are up to, where and how they got on, but this regular contact adds to our sense of community and ensures we are able to offer encouragement and share in successes whenever, wherever.
Free to join
It doesn’t cost anything to join the club, the nature of Triathlon racing means people generally enter individually online through the civilian race organiser that has been charged with running the event. Individuals usually pay there own entry fees but, if those selected for the Corps team turn up at a race the committee may refund their entry fee.
We run an annual training camp, generally proceeding the Corps Championships Race, this is free to those attending and have aspirations to run additional camps in the future.
