John Austin has been appointed as chairman of Rugby Triathlon Club’s Junior Section.
“I’m very proud to be able to lead the junior section. Triathlon has become a bit of a family passion, my children are members and my wife and I are senior club members. What’s more all of us competed in the Southam aquathlon and triathlon last autumn.”
John, Director of Northampton-based Winvic Build Ltd, added: “I have a tough job following my predecessor, Ian Payne.
“He has done a fantastic job in the last five years building the club from nothing to a membership of over 40 juniors. My committee and I are planning to build on this excellent track record.”
Rugby Junior Triathlon Club will be hosting two races this season, the first in April and the second in October on the grounds of Rugby School, where the junior club trains every Sunday at 2pm.
Other local junior triathlon clubs from Coventry, Solihull and Stratford will be invited to compete too.
