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.

TEESDALE TRI IS CLUB EVENT OF THE YEAR

We are delighted to announce that the Teesdale Triathlon has won the 2016 Club Event of the Year award in the Triathlon England North-East awards.
This year we attracted record entries for the race, which is organised by Darlington Tri from Teesdale Leisure Centre in Barnard Castle. A total of 156 competitors entered the race, which consists of a 400m pool swim followed by an 18-mile bike and a 5k run. Around a third of the field was new to triathlon and the club received tremendous feedback from competitors about the event organisation and the the support and friendliness of our marshals.
Our thanks go to our hard-working committee and the small army of club marshals who rose before dawn to set out the course and complete all the many tasks needed to make sure the race ran so smoothly.
The provisional date for next year’s race is Sunday September 24 2017, with entries expected to open on January 1.
