TEESDALE TRIATHLON ANOTHER BIG SUCCESS 

Great to see club members doing so well at  our club race, the Teesdale Triathlon, with several tackling the event for the first time.  

We had another full entry list for this popular triathlon, with Race Organiser Brian making sure everything ran like clockwork.

 

Tom followed up from a strong race at Helvellyn to finish 11th overall in a time of 1:22:21. Zoe was thrilled to get in the age-group prizes with 71st place overall and a time of 1:41:38.

 

Jason H was another member well up the field, finishing 38th in 1:34:06, and another new member, Mark S, finished a magnificent 20th overall.

Also well done to David, who finished 89th in 1:47:35.

COLIN AND MICHELLE ARE CLUB CHAMPIONS

Many congratulations to our new male and female club champions, Colin and Michelle, plus all our other members – senior and junior – who took part in a club record turnout at the Ripon Tri.

 

Colin has been flying all season. One of the fastest runners locally, he has worked really hard on the bike and swim and crossed the line at Ripon in the great time of 2 hrs 28 mins 31 secs.

 

And what can we say about Michelle? She’s battled back from two knee operations that would have floored less determined individuals and put in a fabulous performance in her comeback race to finish in 2:50:10.

 

We had 43 triathletes out on the course in the senior and junior individual races and relays, a fantastic turnout.

 

We can safely say we made our presence felt! Everyone really got into the spirit of things at the racecourse where the weather stayed perfect for camping.

 

And from the video we’ve seen posted on FB, it looks like we won the dance-off, too!
