We will be running our next training duathlons starting 9am on Sunday 24th November. They will be the same format as previous years, a 1 ½ mile run on the cliffs, 6 mile road bike ride and a second run as the first. It is not a race, just a fast training session to practice your bike, run and transitions. You can do all or any part of the session. It is probably going to be cold, wear appropriate clothes for the conditions. We have scheduled another for 15th December, put the date in your diary.
There is no charge for this session.
TriHarman-Norfolk club ride, we will be having a Xmas social ride on Saturday 7th December meeting after the Blickling Park run. Meet in the car park around 10.30am with a view to having a coffee/cake stop at Muddy Boots after the 2 hour ride.
Hope to see as many of our members and guests there as possible.
It has been great to see so many of you at Splash for our Monday TriHarman coached swim sessions.
We are back 7.45pm each Monday with lanes for all abilities.
If you are interested in joining us the session is still just £5 for members, cheaper than a public swim. Lanes for all abilities, a good session for both fitness and technique.
The junior swims resumed at Woodlands Leisure 6pm Sunday 1st September.
On November 3rd coach John Morgan will deliver a gentle run session with a pacing element thrown in. We will meet at the Esplanade in Sheringham as there is reasonable parking there. Aim to start at 9-30, we will be running along the coast path west for 25 minutes, and then return in 24 minutes. The person closest the start without zig zagging stopping or any other devious ploy at the end will win a cup of coffee from the coach on the day! Cafe is not compulsory but it is a great chance to check out everyone’s plans for next year and discuss what social training we should organise over the close season.
It is with regret I have decided to cease the Sunday swim sessions for our juniors. Since we resumed after the summer numbers have been very low, on three weeks I attended to coach we only had one or no swimmers at all. This does not justify the expense of hiring the lane or the coaching time.
The juniors will of course be very welcome at our Monday evening swim, some attend regularly already. This session is well attended and can cater for all abilities.
Mark and Teresa have been running open water swim training courses each spring for more than ten years and introduced many new open water swimmers and triathletes to the sport.
We will be running our next course on 9th and 10th May, places are restricted to ensure you get the best coaching experience and it is filling up already. If you are interested contact us to secure your place.

TriHarman-Norfolk had a record season Open Water Swimming at the Mike Thurston Water Activities Centre. We have now finished for the year, thank you to everyone who has swum with us, see you May 2020.
It is held at a beautiful unspoilt fresh water lake and is clean and well kept, ideal for training. The results of our water testing have confirmed the excellent water quality making it a great place to swim and train. As this is an existing watersport venue it benefits from changing facilities with hot showers and plenty of car parking.
The swims are each Wednesday 6 to 8pm.
