A huge BRAT welcome to our newest baby BRAT Welborne, born at 11.13 on 7th June!  Congratulations to Karl and family.  Thank you to Thanos for the heads up, but apologies for the paucity of other relevant information - a situation which will be rectified as soon as possible!

We are pleased to announce another weekend away for a fun, active, social and exercise themed weekend!


A cheap accommodation, a spectacular place to train in the heart of Snowdonia, with plenty of tea, cake and hearty meals thrown in to the mix (duly washed down with some beer and wine...) and the fabulous  company of your fellow BRATs.  All members are welcome!

This weekend is open to all abilities, novice to experienced athletes and groups/activities will be tailored to suit the attendees. We are proposing to include a number of activities and this will be largely dependent on what the group preferences are.  There will be ample opportunities to mountain bike, road bike, trail run & walk.  There are good bike hire options nearby.


about 5/10 minutes from Coed Y Brenin mtn bike centre


Dates: Friday 11 April to Sunday 13 April

Cost: An incredible £25 per person for 2 nights accommodation (must pay for 2 nights even if you just stay one as this is the basis of the price negotiated)

Booking: The club shop is now open for bookings and payments - Book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited.

Alexander David Bone born 20 May 2013 weighing 8lbs 3oz - an excellent size for either triathlon or athletics... Many congratulations to Cat and Peter on their newest BRAT baby.  Training sessions commence in 7 years, 364 days.  Maximillian, his older brother, will no doubt be pleased to show Alexander the way.
