Alnwick Tri – Sunday 11th May

Is Alnwick Tri always so windy??  This year saw 5 members of the club at Alnwick for the very popular early season sprint Triathlon.  Jo Shallcross, Andy Gowans, Paul Gerrard, Jenny Edgell and Chris Heppell were all up early this morning and heading to Alnwick.

The Elite women were first away in the pool so Jo was in action straight after the 08:00hrs start of the event.  Later we all headed out on the same course,  and hit the undulating hills and the wind that is traditional on this costal event.

Event timings this year didn’t split out T1 and T2 but included them in the Swim and Bike times.  Great results for all who took part. Always a well organised event and our thanks go to Alnwick Tri club and all the volunteers on the day.

We are in need of the new club tri suites from Endura ( which should be here in time for Ponteland Tri ) as it’s not easy to recognise the club members as they finish the event. Great picture ( left ) of Andy finishing the run where we all managed negative splits on the course…..  ( Well we would on a course that goes uphill for the first half of the distance. )
