New Beginnings at Gr8 Events

This news item was posted on January 8, 2014

Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s to an excellent year of training and eventing in 2014!

As many of you will be aware, Gareth Richardson, the founder of Gr8 Events, left the UK in 2013 for a new life in New Zealand. Please join me in wishing him and Michelle well in their new life.

I took the decision to take over the running of the company in September 2013. My aim is to continue to deliver excellent events and build on the success of Gareth’s hard work over the last two years. The Aquacycles and Open Water Swims will continue to form a major part of the Gr8 Events calendar, based at Ellerton Lake. I have been working behind the scenes during the winter to develop ideas I have around an off-road running event in Swaledale and a pool based aquathlon/triathlon at Richmond. I am hoping to finalise the details of these events as soon as I can.

There have been a few teething problems with the website but fingers crossed, it is all sorted now! It has been re-vamped style-wise and simplified a little. I have removed the users pages for now as they were complicating matters in the background, we should be able to maintain and increase that interaction via social media. I hope you like the new look and find it easy to navigate. Please let me know of any issues you come across so I know to get them sorted or any queries, fire them through!

I look forward to meeting you during 2014 at various events in and around the north, including my own.
