Belvoir Triathlon Club members will be demonstrating their prowess in one of their three disciplines at this year’s Rotary Swimarathon.

Belvoir Tri Club was founded two years ago by a group of like-minded individuals, and now its members range from first time novices to seasoned pros, aged from 18 to 60 plus.

Karl Hunt, communications officer, said: “Some of us have taken part in other teams but decided to put in two teams this year and use the event as part of our weekly training.”

Rotary Club of Grantham President, Mos Kalbassi said: “We get a lot of support from the people of Grantham for our event, but it is always nice to see new teams join. I’m sure the members from Belvoir Triathlon will be going at speed!”

Although only founded in 2012, the club already has a growing number of members who have represented GB at European and World Championship level, and take part in cycling, open water swimming and running races as well as combined triathlons.

They have three training sessions a week, and a Sunday social ride, with more details at www.belvoirtriclub.co.uk

Team spaces are still available for the Rotary Swimarathon on February 6-8. Those interested in joining can go to www.rotaryswimarathon.org or ring 07454 941349
