ERC Triathlon Festival

Aug 29, 2016
ERC Triathlon Festival

 The tri squad committee have taken to difficult decision to cancel the 2017 ERC Tri Festival that was planned for September at Lochore Meadows.
 
There were a combination of factors that fed into this decision, with the final one being the fact that the new Lochore Park Centre won't be completed until October/November this year. Designing a safe course around a construction site, particularly involving the kids race, was something we felt uncomfortable with.
 
We plan to be back with a refreshed event in 2018 at Lochore.
