Go Tri Ponteland #3 – 17th July 2019

The weather is usually great for our Go Tri’s, but not this one, the last one of the year. Light rain started at 16:30 just as we started to put out transition and the evening continued between light rain with some heavier rain until shortly after we had cleared everything up and had gone home. The timing was perfectly aligned to make sure we all got wet but that didn’t stop the fun and enjoyment. It was a sell out event although I think the rain put off quite a few as we had a number of no-shows on the day. There were a larger than usual number of novices which did make for a particulary easy going event without the display of top-end time trial bikes on show. Continue reading

Go Tri Ponteland #2 – 5th June 2019 ****UPDATED****

The weather was kind to us again for the second of our Go Tri this year, probably perfect conditions for those competing. We had 46 finishers on the night so a modest turnout for us 😉

The atmosphere was great with loads of freindly marshals helping out and encouraging the traithletes. There seems to have been a bit of a happiest triathlete competition ongoing at the finish line 🙂 🙂

Go Tri Ponteland #1, 15th May 2019

The sun shone for us for our first Go Tri of the year and we all had a fabulous time. There was a lovely mix of first time triathletes as well as the competitive triathletes and we had a couple of teams too.

Before we get to the results I have a word of CAUTION especially for our more competitive participants. We take great pride in putting on freindly and welcoming events however, the safety of our events is paramount, indeed if saftey is jeopardised we cannot put on these events. Therefore, although we say in the safety briefing that we don’t DQ anyone, in future events we will give time penalties or DQ anyone who does not abide by the ‘rules’ in our safety briefing and puts theirs or the marshals safety at risk. Enough said. Continue reading

The Lakesman/ Lakesman Half (16th June 2018)

The decision to do another half iron was taken in Yolo back over a few cocktails and an iPad to google possible events to enter.  In the end, 6 Pont Tri crazy people competed in the half ironman (Tina K, Nikki R, Abby D, Pete D, John McG and myself) with Lyndsey Curry ‘aka the Machine’ stepping up to the full ironman distance.  It has got to be one of the best triathlon events and courses in the UK, possibly in Europe and this race report explains why.
