Coached training will be back from Monday 9th January.  However, we still have the lanes booked at Craigie Leisure Centre, so feel free to use these, but note that this week there are no coached sessions for swimming and running.

Our first Aquathlon for the year is on this Friday 6th January.  There are some great spot prizes to be won and Kelli assures me that the sea will be calm!!!
