March Triathlon Club aim to secure a bright season ahead after what has been a strange year.
The club, in its second year and with increasing membership figures, was hit by the coronavirus pandemic like many other clubs and organisations.
Although training stopped after their George Campbell Leisure Centre home was closed, members still trained and took on virtual events too.
Attention has now turned to the 2021 season, with members taking to Tuesday night swimming sessions.
Coaches Aaron Godden and Michael Stacy are also working on a winter training schedule that will include swimming and organised winter rides, as well as a planned running clinic.

The club is looking for a new chairman and secretary, where no triathlon experience is needed and full training and an introduction will be given by existing committee members.
