Spectrum Striders have set up a reciprocal informal arrangement with Warrington Tri Club. They can do running training with us and we can do swim training with them. Their Saturday swim training is at Lymm Leisure Centre from 5pm to 6pm. There is a qualified swim coach at this session and they have exclusive use of the pool. You pay a session fee to Warrington Tri as they are hiring the pool, but as a Strider they have agreed you will be charged at their member’s rate of £3 for the session. They use a side entrance to the Leisure Centre so you need to find that.
The idea is that you can try and see if you enjoy the training with the other Club with the intention of joining it if you do. Sharon Whitehead, John and Linda Owen are already going to the Warrington Tri swimming sessions if you want to ask what them what the sessions are like. Sharon says that they are very friendly! Warrington Tri’s individual membership fee is very reasonable at £15 just like ours. It gets you affiliated to the British Triathlon Club. They have a Club website. They have cycle training sessions as well on Wednesday night and on Sunday.
We have several joint members already Martijn Groenendaal, Ruth Jones and Andy Rawley. You may know several more of the other triathletes as quite a few have been trying Striders track training sessions at Victoria Park. We hope this link will grow with time, although I appreciate that several Club members are already linked to Chester Tri, but Warrington Tri are clearly closer
