Junior Series Co-ordinator
Paul Ekgren. I have been doing this role now for many years. I came from a running and triathlon background and want to give the opportunity to all the young athletes out there so they can compete?, have fun and make new friends and just take part if they wish.
Senior Series Co-ordinator
Ian Mostyn. I have held this position for the past couple of years and with Covid disrupting a lot of events, it has been very difficult to organize. Now that we seem to be returning to some kind of normality, I have loads of ideas that I would like to bring to the series.
I am a big supporter of our local clubs and feel we should use the series to encourage participation, support our local races, especially club run races and showcase our excellent clubs to gain new members. The majority of triathletes racing are not club members and we should be encouraging them to join clubs, become coaches or officials, help run events and spread the sport across the region.
Members can vote for the Nominees at the AGM taking place at the National Cycling Centre from 7pm on the 27th October. Members unable to attend can send their votes in advance to the NW Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
