The Comox Valley Triathlon Club (CVTC) is extending an invitation to new members to join the club.
This year the club will be offering a wide range of activities, including group bike rides, open water swims, time trials and a youth clinic during the race season with pool swim workouts and spin sessions during the winter months.
"The club provides a fun and enjoyable atmosphere to allow its members to achieve their individual goals," said president Graham Garner. "Existing members cover a whole range of abilities, with some achieving excellent results in 2012 and others there to train in a group environment. A few raced at Ironman distance, both in Canada and abroad. Others raced at Olympic and Sprint distance and many trained just for the fun of it without feeling the need to compete," Garner added.
"The club has been growing year on year, both in number of members and the range of activities offered. We are determined to continue this development and attracting new members is one essential part of doing so. There is a superb team spirit within the club and with the membership fee only $35 it represents great value."
The annual membership sign-up takes place Thursday, Jan. 10 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Aquarium Room at the CV Aquatic Centre. The event will start with a short talk from a TriBC official about their role at races. "The rest of the evening is about meeting and socializing with other triathletes, with an ice-breaker included to help this get underway," Garner said
For anyone wishing to join the club but unable to get to the sign-up event, membership application forms and additional information about the club can be obtained by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The CVTC is sponsored by Extreme Runners and Blacks Cycles. "The club is grateful to these local businesses and proud to support them. Xterra Wetsuits is also a sponsor," Garner said.
