2013 was a hugely successful year for GCTri and we hope you had a personally fulfilling year training and racing as well.  It’s not too early to start setting your goals for 2014 – and we’re here to help you reach them!  In case you didn’t already know, we are kicking off the New Year with a track workout at 2pm on New Year’s Day at the Weehawen track.  Check the club calendar for more details http://www.gctri.org/race-calendar/


Start your new year off with some motivation to join the group workouts!  2014 membership dues can easily be paid on the website –http://www.gctri.org/login-2/ This year you will receive a GCTri water bottle as your membership gift.  We plan on distributing these at the kickoff meeting and also through our sponsor Fleet Feet of Hoboken.
