This half term we are working with Triathlon England to deliver a duathlon taster event. The first was incredibly successful with about 80 young people trying a run/bike/run format in the grounds of the hall. The cycles and helmets are provided for loan, so just bring the young people along to have a go. If they can ride a bike they can have a go, just come along between 10am and 3.30pm and give it a try.
We will try running another group bike ride, to see if there is any demand to continue them through the Winter/Spring.
The ride is 2 – 3 hours and generally covers 25 – 35 miles. We meet at Bodham Village Hall at 10.30 am. This is to allow the Park runners to run and bike as a good brick session. Only heavy ice or snow will stop us riding so wrap up for the conditions and join us for a ride.
All you need is a road bike and helmet, with clothing suitable for winter riding. There is no charge for this session.
We will be running the first of our training duathlons starting 9am on Sunday 11th November. They will be the same format as previous years, a 1 ½ mile run on the cliffs, 6 mile road bike ride and a second run as the first. It is not a race, just a fast training session to practice your transitions. You can do all or any part of the session. It is going to be cold, wear appropriate clothes for the conditions. There is no charge for this session.
Great to see so many of our young triathletes attending our junior swim sessions at Woodlands Leisure, 6 – 7pm each Sunday. This is a one hour coached session, technique and conditioning for our under 18yrs swimmers. They make an impressive sight training at the pool.
We welcome new junior racers looking to prepare for 2019.
It has been great to see so many of you at Splash for our Monday TriHarman coached swim sessions. Our juniors have certainly been spicing up the fast lane and the other lanes have been busy. If you are interested in joining us the session is still just £5 for members, cheaper than a public swim. Lanes for all abilities, a good session for both fitness and technique.
note: The session now starts a little earlier at 7.45pm
Well done to the select few who took on our open water Aquathlon. The results are shown below.

All the proceeds of the race and the cake sales raised another £100 towards Becky Coopers 1000mile Challenge. Thank you for your contributions.

Maastricht is lovely, the people friendly and proved to be fantastic on race day. I picked this location for the certainty of a wetsuit swim and temperatures I could handle after the Vichy event two years ago. So, after a ferry to Dunkirk, a simple three hour drive, we arrive at our beautiful apartment about 10 minute walk from transition. Read more here
Something of an inspiration for all those who think poor swimming will stop them racing triathlon. Twelve months ago Phil Hurr could barely swim a length, but with some swim coaching, plenty of practice and determination, his duathlon racing has turned into an age group win at a major race, The London Triathlon.

The day began at 4 am when the alarm went off and it was straight to the loo just like every race. Mark got up to make some tea and porridge for himself and Emma who was staying with us. I chose to go with a bagel and boiled egg as Kimberley Morrison had suggested which I managed to eat and keep down. Read more here
Congratulations to all the racers at this mornings event. It was so good to see so many juniors trying the sport and special mention to 72 yr old Frank Reader completing his first triathlon.
