Congratulations to Elliot, Max and Jess who raced at Nationals last week.  Elliot had amazing races to come away with 2 silver medals in both individual and relay, Jess came away with a bronze in the individual race and in the relay and Max finished 20th in the individual and a bronze in the relays.  Great racing juniors in very trying conditions

Congrats to everyone who also raced in the Luke Harrop on the weekend.  I haven’t seen the results yet so I don’t know who podiumed however well done to everyone who raced.  I heard it was a windy but fantastic day.

Congrats to everyone who raced at Pinnacles on Saturday and there were quite a few out there.  Special mention to Nic for coming 2nd in the womens event and Darragh who was 5th overall in 1.33.  I mention that time as I love hearing an Irishman say 1:33 (ask him to tell you his time).   Most who ran are still trying to get over their sore quads and some of the mad ones are backing up to do a Glasshouse Trail this weekend.

Entries are open for both the Gold Coast Marathon and for the Jetty 2 Jetty so make sure you enter today.  Also don’t forget our own club race.  Make sure you get entered.

Also to the other swimmers – May to July sees us do a big block of stroke correction in all our swimming sessions.  We will still have distance and speed for those racing over the winter months but focus comes back onto that technique work that we all need.

Have a great Easter break everyone.  Enjoy some time off with your family and make sure the easter eggs that you eat are made from nice chocolate.  If you are going away, have a great time and travel safe.  Enjoy your short break away.  If you are staying around and doing any improvised sessions on the weekend you are welcome to put them on the RTC fb page to see if there is anyone else that may join you.
