Following the hilarity of the 2017 debut, join us for a re-staging of this fun social event before Christmas. A duathlon with a difference…! The race will comprise a 2km run along the promenade followed by a 2km ergo (rowing machine) and another 2km run to finish! We will then adjourn to the Rowing Club bar for some grub and refreshments. Prizes for the best xmas themed fancy dress so start planning those outfits…The sillier, the better! Tickets will be £5. To whet your appetite check out last years photos! https://www.flickr.com/photos/161223254@N04/38970052191/in/album-72157667299909799/
Careful with your fancy dress, you don’t want your Christmas baubles caught in the rowing machine!
Our traditional pre-Christmas Saturday breakfast run;
Date: Saturday 15 December 2018
Venue: Beefeater, Crossbush Lane, Arundel, BN18 9PQ
Time: Meet in the car park at 7.30 to run
Eligibility: (a) anyone who wants a run
(b) anyone who is injured or just wants to come for breakfast, (say from 8.30?)
(c) or simply anyone with porcine tendencies!
A festive hat is often applauded!
Meet in the car park ready to run, (festive accoutrements optional), for a run of 4 or 5 miles to work up an appetite, and run back to Crossbush for their all you can eat Breakfast. Tea/Coffee, cereal, yoghurts, croissants, toast and a full cooked breakfast, eating as much as you like. The cost has gone up slightly from last year – now £9.50, but if you consider how much a mug of Costa coffee costs, then you only need to have 3 cups of coffee to get your monies worth! As we will have a block booking, may I suggest that everyone pays £10 so that we can give a small tip? There is a cheaper, healthier (?) continental option at £7.50.
Following on from the success of the first Tuff Christmas Night Ride last year, the second will be held on Friday 21 December 2018.
The start and finish point is the Worlds End in Patching so if you do not want to ride there is the opportunity to join those riding for a drink and a bag of nuts!
The route is the same as last year, a bit of flat with a few climbs – nothing too challenging!
Please make sure you wrap up warm, your bike is well maintained and you have good lights as most of the route is unlit!
In the event of bad weather…….it will just be a drink in the pub!!😜
As is tradition – Tuff Fitty have hired Arundel Lido for a swim from 9am on Saturday 29th.
We have the Lido hired for 1 hour but the cabin will be open until 10:30 am when we will be serving hot drinks
You are welcome to simply come for the swim – OR
Meet up for a run into Arundel Park first. We will meet at 7:30am as usual but clearly we will be back in time for the Lido at 9pm: – OR
If people would prefer to cycle over, as you will be aware the site is large enough to bring your bike in.
The Lido facility has been booked and paid for so we hope you will be able to come along.
Tuff Fitty’s annual first visit to Arundel Lido.
Before the Lido opens to the public, Tuff Fitty have hired the facility. The heating will have been turned on by may not be quite up to operating temperature – Ideal conditions for us to hire to use as a wetsuit swim.
Heading into May it will not be long before the open water triathlons and open water swims occur. Therefore this is the ideal opportunity for you to ensure you can still get into your wetsuit for the coming season.
Cost £5 on the night. We can start swimming at 7:00pm and have the pool until 8:00pm. We have also hired the cabin where there will be hot drinks available. We need to be off the site at 8:30pm.
We hope to have a good Tuff presence.
A Club special – Tuff Fitty have hired Westhampnett Lake for an evening of swim fun
All swimmers will need to sign a disclaimerBRIGHT coloured swim hats MUST be worn.
If you have not ticked ‘going’ you will not be permitted to swim on Facebook. If you are not on FB you should inform any coaches or committee members that you will be attending.
At the moment this event is only for TUFFs – we will see how numbers go and then open it up to your friends at a cost of £5 PP.
We are proud to be putting on this event to add additional value to your annual membership.
