Borders League

Next Borders League races

The Borders League starts again in October.

About the Borders League

Chester Triathlon Club competes in the Borders League each year. The league is a series of local monthly road races held from November to April, ranging from 5 to 6 miles in length.

These races are certainly not just for the faster members of the club. They are an opportunity for all of us to have a good hard run which will do much to benefit our progress. Use them as a training session or to build experience of a race situation. As you tend to compete against the same people month on month it provides a good measure (and incentive!) of how you are getting on throughout the season.

Everyone is welcome, remember, we all help the overall scores one way or another.

The venues are varied, packed with friendly faces (even from rival clubs) and enthusiastic support. For those races slightly further afield the club can provide transport for members.

Chester Tri also leads the field in post race catering – hot drinks and flap jacks!

The races are completely free to enter and you can just turn up on the day, no need to sign-up in advance.

Venues, directions and results are published here: www.bordersleague.org.uk

To take part you need:
  1. EA membership
  2. Chester Tri membership
  3. a club vest must be worn.

You must have EA (England Athletics) membership to take part in this and all other league races.  The annual fee is £13 and the membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March.

Please take time to check you have current EA membership.

You can check if you have already paid for EA membership by logging in and checking if your “Memberships” includes “Chester Tri Club EA Membership”
