With 2017 coming to an end and a new year looming it’s time for a little reflection on what team GTC have achieved this year. It’s impossible to mention everything as it’s been an incredible year of individual achievements and Club successes.
On the individual front we’ve made a few more Ironmen and GTC’s first Ironlady, other Members have completed their first 70.3 event (Half Ironman), Standard, Sprint and Novice distance Triathlon’s, Duathlon’s, Aquathlon’s, Ultra And Hill Running events, Marathon’s, Half Marathon’s, 10k And 5k Races and everything else in between. So many Members have exceeded their expectations and completely smashed their personal goals in swimming, cycling, running and in many cases all 3!!
On the Club front we also achieved more than our fair share of successes in 2017. To celebrate GTC’s 5th Anniversary we hosted our inaugural Triathlon which proved very popular and was responsible for making many new triathletes. As a Triathlon Club this was a major accomplishment which we are very proud of.
There was also our Balbirnie Duathlon which is the other big event on our calendar. This event is always a winner for GTC and grows in popularity year on year. It’s now a 2 time Triathlon Scotland Event winner – Most Enjoyable Event of the Year in 2013 and Event of the Year 2017. This was awarded to us in November and was the icing on the cake of an amazing year for our Club.
In addition to the 2 main events we also hosted a couple of free 5k fun events and you guys love them too.
Looking forward to 2018 team GTC have many big plans and goals to be realised so it’s already shaping up to be another incredible year.
If you’re looking to get fitter in 2018 why don’t you come and join the friendliest and most inclusive Club around. We cater for and encourage all abilities in all 3 disciplines of Triathlon. Of course you don’t have to be good at or want to do all 3 as we will be happy to help you with whatever areas you want to focus on.
Look out here for details of new 2018 Memberships which will be opening up in Entry Central in the next week or so. We would love to have you join us and help you achieve your fitness aspirations and goals in the new year whilst having so much fun along the way with a fabulous group of inspirational people.
Happy New Year when it comes from all at GTC and thank you all for your continued support in 2017
