Club Championship – probably the final table…

After a good turn out at yesterday’s Rising ParkRun the table has made some late changes to the table. Most significant at the sharp end was Mick Meaney overtaking Nick Wild into second place, a great effort. This will be the final table unless anyone does a marathon before the end of the month, so subject to verification and of course drugs testing John McGargill is the winner – Congratulations, a great example of fulfilling your potential!.

Club Championship Latest with only 1 event to go

I have updated the table for the Halwhistle 1/2, Prudhoe Miners Race and the marathons over the weekend that I knew people had entered i.e. Chicago and York – some great times by those competing. The last event before the Championship season ends at the end of October is the Rising Sun park run on Saturday (Oct 14th). Any marathons also count – just let me know. Read the full results

Go Tri Ponteland #4 – 12th July 2017

Well we had an absolutely fantastic turnout last night for our last Go Tri of the year. We were sold out with 70 participants registered to take part and actually had 65 participants on the night, a record for us. We had to make transition a bit bigger to accommodate the extra bikes!

The weather was perfect; sunshine, not a lot of wind and 16C, you couldn’t ask for better conditions. We had a lot of first time triathletes again last night, 22 according to my list and I apologise for not mentioning you all in our race briefing. With us at full capacity, I was a bit short of time as I had to get you started as near to 19:05 as I could. Well done to all our novices, I know there were quite a few nerves before the event but you all did brilliantly. the feedback I got from several of you was that you loved it!

Another thing I forgot to mention last night was to thank our brilliant marshals without whom these events could not take place. I know you will all join me in giving them a massive (virtual) round of aplause for their support of these events. Well done all marshals, you were fantastic!!!

Here are the results from last night, well done to allparticipants.

Lastly, some of you got an extra little treat in your goody bags for some extra special effort, smiles, encouragement etc so well done you if you got a bag of sweets :-)

That’s the last of our events for this year but we will be back in 2018 for more Go Tri’s.
