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.

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.
