On Wednesday next, 24 August, our final Aquathon of the year takes place on Bray Promenade. We had an absolutely incredible 160 competitors in the last race which only went ahead through the hard work of those members who volunteered to help. So I would really appreciate a special effort to attend this race, whether you plan on participating or if you are free to marshal.
As is tradition with the final race of the year, we have reserved the bar in The Martello from 8:30pm and there will be some finger food served.
Could you please either respond below or contact me directly to let me know if you can help out in any way, whether or not you plan to race and what time you can make it at?
I am happy to marshal again Michael, I am not racinig. I am going to ask for some extra help however as there is a junior race on the 24th before the adult aquathon.
We need somebody who can tow the club trailer from Charlesland Golf Club to Bray Promenade but earlier than usual, ideally dropping it to Bray by 4:30.
If you are free to marshal and can help with the junior race we really would appreciate your help from 5:15 onwards. We would like a couple of people willing to enter the water in wetsuits for swim support and a kayaker or two. We also need somebody to help marshal the kids transition area (we have a dad so maybe a female helper please) and a few course marshals to help guide runners.
If you can help with the trailer please make contact with me as I will be preparing the race equipment for Wednesday.
I'm already down to be in the water for the Juniors, and entered in the Adult race, but if there's something I can do in between and getting myself organised, I can give a hand to something/ someone I guess!
