Many of our club members compete in races as well as enjoying the social and fitness benefits joining a club offers. We’ve had many members that have represented ELT in the UK and Overseas and others that have represented team GB as age groupers in European and World Championships.
As a club we like to target specific races throughout the year in which we will aim to encourage many of our members to attend. We have three categories of events:
Grand Prix: Our committee chooses these races each year, which make up the ELT Grand Prix. There are prizes for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in the Grand Prix. Points are awarded within the club to those people taking part. See Grand Prix tab for this years races. This will include a variety of race distances.
Non GP: These do not form part of the Grand Prix race series but are part of the race calendar. These may be Duathlons, Swimrun, Time Trials, Chingford League (running) and or any event our club have a strong interest in.
Social: We run a variety of social events throughout the year, it’s an opportunity to ditch the lycra and get to know your club mates better. The social calendar finishes with the End of Year Awards.
