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.

Go Tri Ponteland #3 – 28th June 2017

Well it was inevitable¬†at some point in time that our good luck with the weather for Go Tri’s was going to change and it certainly did last night. The forecast was for heavy rain and 16mph northerly wind and 11C, not what you’d expect for mid summer, more like winter! With that forecast we had a lot of no shows which was no surprise however, we still had 26 participants and plenty of marshals to cheer and encourage people on.

Club Coast-2-Coast Sat 24th/Sun 25th June

It seems like a long time since we decided that we should organise a club cost-2-coast ride, but that’s due to the popularity of the route over the long days in June requiring early booking. So in Sept 2016 there was a flurry of emails, some deposits paid, transport and hotels booked and then we all forgot about it for a while……until last weekend.

Go Tri Ponteland #1 24th May 2017

Well what a perfect night for our first Go Tri of the year, the sun was shining and it was the hottest day of the year so far. 42 participants took part and for 8, this was their first ever triathlon so there were a few nerves around but the freindly marshals were around to help them out.

It’s always great to see a mix of abilities taking part in these events so along with the novices we had some nice TT bikes and pointy helmets on show of the really fast guys and girls using this as a nice little bit of training and I was certainly impressed by some of the fast mounting and dismounting, not that I’ll be trying any of that as it would definitely end up in injury!

Well done to everyone who took part and especially to all the marshals without whom , these events could not take place. Remember the next one is less than two weeks away on 7th June

Photos from the event can be found on the ponteland runners facebook page.

Here’s the results from last night;
