Sport Loving Girl - Looking for Fellow Triathletes, Rock Climbers, Hikers

Hey my name is Katalina, I'm new in Zurich and looking for new sports/active friends. I'm a triathlete, rock climber and generally love all sports. Looking to meet anyone similar who want to train or do sports at the weekend. I'm missing my sports buddies from back in the UK! Drop me a message. Katalina.

Re: Sport Loving Girl - Looking for Fellow Triathletes, Rock Climbers, Hikers

Hi, pity you just missed the Zurich triathlon weekend, it's a reasonably big deal here, about 5000 entrants I think, next one is the Uster triathlon on the 29th August which is smaller, online bookings are closed now but if you get there early you've got a decent chance of getting a no shows place, one of my mates managed to get a last minute place last year for the Olympic.

details at

also worth checking out
http://www.datasport.com/en/ for upcoming events and booking places.

and see

for lake swimming, there are two crossings this weekend, both 1.8km, I plan on doing one of them.

Hey Katalina.

I've done a couple of relay triathlons, but none solo so far (Stone in water syndrome..)

Where abouts have you done races in the UK?

I'm moving out to Zurich in a couple of weeks for the Ice Hockey, which will take over my life as usual .

Always looking to meet new people!

Hello Katalina, and welcome! It is great to have another sports enthusiast here - Hopefully we can meet up for a bike ride or run or something sometime soon. Keep an eye out on the calendar for weeknight group runs in Zurich (often on Wed.) and bike rides (often on Thursdays, when the weather cooperates!). These kinds of activities are how we have gotten to know lots of fun sports buddies here

Hi

I'd also recommend datasport's website to see what is coming up

http://www.datasport.com/en/?setScreen=1024


Or join a tri-club like free radicals

For hiking there is a yahoo group you can join

HikeSwitzerland@yahoogroups.com

I am an English native triathlete and just done the ironman this year for the first time. If you want a tour around the circuit (2x90km) send a mail to neilandrews2001@hotmail.com :-)

Cheers

:-). Would love to climb the Matterhorn but I am quite terrified of heights!
Will do Uster Triathlon tomorrow. Great course :-)
