Barbara de Koning, Team MK youth member performed brilliantly and finished 6th in the Youth Olympics

Games in Buenos Aires. After a very fast 750 meter swim she came 4th out of the water then lead and controlled the bike group which averaged almost 40 km/h over 20 kilometres. She then did the run in a new PB resulting in 6th place overall.  Barbara has been training regularly with the Team Milton Keynes supported by the club coaches. 


La Grande Aventure” from Pace (Aylesbury) to Ypres (Belgium) 11 – 15 September 19 

I am writing to you from a local charity in Aylesbury called Pace (http://www.thepacecentre.org/).  Pace is a children’s charity that transforms the lives of children and young people with motor disorders such as cerebral palsy. 

As part of our fundraising strategy for 2019 we have a number of running, walking and cycling events planned throughout the year and we are looking to make connections with local clubs in the hope that you can help us to promote these events to your members and other contacts and encourage support and participation.

In particular, we are planning a ride “La Grande Aventure” from Pace (Aylesbury) to Ypres (Belgium) 11 – 15 September 19.  This is a cycle challenge aimed mainly at the novice to intermediate cyclist.  In order to provide people with further information about the event, and hopefully sign them up, we are hosting an information evening on 28th November. Visit our website at www.thepacecentre.org for more information.

Smart Sportswear company continues to support young, British athletes with latest sign up 

Performance and recovery enhancing sportswear company, KYMIRA Sport, has signed up Team MK 19 year old triathlete Harry Hammond as a brand athlete.

As the latest sportsman to join KYMIRA Sport’s list of talented athletes, Harry will now receive vital sponsorship, expert advice as well as custom made infrared sportswear in a bid to support his aspirations for athletic achievement. After winning his first ever triathlon just last year, Harry was looking for a brand partner that could help him build his profile and support his training and development.

Harry may still be considered a ‘newbie’ to the sport, but this hasn’t stopped him from earning himself a place on the GB Age-Group Team, competing in the 2018 Gold Coast ITU Sprint Distance World Championships and the 2018 Middle Distance European Championships in Ibiza later this year.
