Newmarket Cycling and Triathlon Club is celebrating its 80th anniversary year. The club was founded in 1924 as just a cycling club and has grown to having around 90 active members who take part in duathlon and triathlon events.
Maxine Lane, who joined six years ago and is now press secretary for the club, said the friendly nature and three-times weekly swimming coaching are highlights. “I have made a lot of good friends and training partners. We are like a big family,” she said.
The club’s next event is the Newmarket Duathlon, which takes place in Stetchworth, on August 17.
