HAVE FUN AT OUR GO TRI STARTER EVENT

We’re staging a GO TRI starter aquathlon in Darlington on Tuesday May 15 as a taster for the Teesdale Triathlon. 

GO TRI is a great way to learn about triathlon in a friendly, supportive environment and this event has been designed specifically to help Teesdale entrants who may be wondering what to expect in Barnard Castle on September 23.

This starter event consists of a 200m swim (eight lengths of the pool) followed by a 2k run within the grounds of the Education Village. We have kept the entry fee down to just £8, just enough to cover our costs.

We will also have on the night:

  • Demonstration bike racking to show you what to look out for – and mistakes to avoid – on the big day at Barnard Castle
  • Coaches from Darlington Triathlon Club will be on hand to answer your questions on all aspects of our club race and triathlon in general
  • Maps of the Teesdale Triathlon course and advice about the kind of kit you need to bring on race day
  • Finishers’ medals plus free refreshments

Entries are limited to just 32 and the closing date is Saturday May 12. Start time is 6.45pm, with pre-event briefing at 6pm.

GREAT PERFORMANCES FROM OUR MEMBERS

What a fantastic turn-out from the club at Ripon  . . . with some wonderful results, too.

In the standard distance race, Neil S (2:25:29) just edged Colin T, who finished 323rd in 2:27:05. Next in was club coach Donna, who finished fifth in cat with 2:32:23. There was little time separating Michael G (2:37:10, PB), Jo S (2:39:43), Michelle Mac (2:45:20), Pauline P (2:47:53, 10th in cat), Diane J (2:49:23, PB), Zoe Mac (2:49:53, PB), and Micky B (2:53:13).

Coming in just over the 3hrs mark was Chris L (3:00:50) and following him were Emma (3:05:24), Kelly (3:07:54), John Mac (3:09:29 – having stopped on the bike course), Alan Mac (3:13:01) and Katherine B (3:27:16).

In the sprint race, congratulations to Rachel J, who was first in cat in 1:25:36. We also saw some impressive results from the juniors, notably Daniel Boyer (first in cat), David Smith (second in cat) and Jeremy Roberts.

At the Lakesman Ironman-distance-race, Neil S was delighted to edge under 11 hours in only his second race at this distance, clocking 10:56 for 17th place overall and second in his age group.
Jo S also had a great day, finishing fourth lady in the excellent time of 11:47. Congratulations, too, to Zoe Mac, who came home in 14:04:55 to complete her first Ironman-distance race. All three received great support from club members around the course.

Also well done to John Mac, who finished in 14:43.

At the the Cleveland Short Course race from Ellerton, there was little to choose between Andy S and Mark W, who both put in excellent performances. Andy came home fourth in cat in 2:25:11 and Mark was just seconds behind in 2:26:53.

Garmo was our sole representative in the Leeds Triathlon, coming home in a swift 2:44:00.
