Welcome to One life Racing

One of the North East’s largest triathlon clubs for both children and adults.  Based in Hexham, One Life is a community based club that provides the chance to try out, train and compete in the combined sport of triathlon.  

Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced triathlete, we pride ourselves on welcoming athletes of all abilities.

The ethos of the club is simple – it’s about doing the best for you and having a lot of fun along the way.  It’s an ethos that has also produced some fantastic talent from the youngsters in the club to those our more experienced members!

A huge congratulations to both of them and we look forward to hearing all the race news on their return, so watch this space.

So far, despite the gale force winds and at times torrential rain the weather has been fairly mild up until now this winter.  However it is getting colder.  Can all parents please ensure that children are appropriately dressed for running in the colder months – they should have long running trousers, long sleeved tops on and also bring spare layers with them so they don’t get cold especially during warm up and cool downs.  Thank you.

Haltwhistle Aquathlon 26th April 2014

Hexham Triathlon 13th July 2014

As of 1st march you can now enter our own 2014 junior club events. These two events (Haltwhistle Aquathlon and Hexham Triathlon) were a tremendous success last year and we plan for them to be even more so in 2014. Places went quickly last year and we had a waiting list of hopeful entrants particularly for the triathlon so we are holding off wider promotion for the first five days to give our members a chance to enter first. For more details on the events and how to enter please see the links below:

Haltwhistle Aquathlon - 26th April 2014

While many of the Club were over in the west at the Carlisle City Aquathlon three of the Club’s older juniors aged 15-17 made the longer journey south east to North Yorkshire to take part in the Stokesley Duathlon. Once over the age of 15 juniors can enter senior races, so the intrepid threesome took on much older opposition in the adult sprint distance event, consisting of a 3km run, 17km cycle on open roads and another 3km run, and were able to show them how it should be done.

What a difference a year makes - there were no grey clouds and no snow, in fact just the opposite for what was for most the first multi-discipline event to start the season. Yes it was the Carlisle Aquathlon and yes the sun was most definitely shining as members of One Life headed west to take part in what was for some their first ever event and for others a chance to see how much of that winter training had paid off!

For everyone considering competing this year, getting back out on the bike or just training, now is the time to consider what One Life club kit are you going to need in 2014!

We have reasonable stocks of most items but we are very low on some cycle kit and as a new item for 2014 we were going to try adult tri suits from Endura. (We still have good stocks of children's tri suits.)

So if you need bib shorts, short sleeved cycle jerseys or an Endura tri suit then we are going to have to ask for specific orders accompanied by a 50% deposit.

Running is NOT on Friday 14th February 2014. The track has been closed by the Wentworth due to it being flooded in places.

Enjoy the evening off and look forward to seeing you all Friday 21st February as normal.
