In the 20th Year of organising the Cotswold Triathlon, Tri Ferris Promotions have handed over the Cotswold Triathlons to some of the regular Crew who will be orgainsing all the Cotswold Triathlons and Duathlon as Total Promotions. Everything is and will be just the same as usual and Lorraine and Kevin are still involved but as part of the Crew. Ex international runner Debbie Gunning has taken over the main duties as Race Director for Total Promotions with the crew and standard of organisation the same as usual. Tri Ferris Promotions will still be organising the Big Cotswold Swims with Lorraine Ferris as Swim Director. "Having organised triathlons firstly with 220 magazine since 1989 and starting up Tri Ferris Promotions in 1999 I've decided to let some younger crew take charge so I can have a few more holidays! Thanks to everyone who has supported the Events over the years and the many volunteers - hope you have enjoyed as much as me. See you at the Cotswold Triathlon on 9th September as Total Promotions Crew or Big Cotswold Swim on 15th September as Tri Ferris Promotions. Keep Tri-Ing" Lorraine
