Another really good day for SLH on 19 April at the Kingfisher Aquathlon in Morden. After a 'flu bug knocked five of us out we entered 11 adults and three juniors, but with great results. Our ladies team of Ruth, Natalie, Caroline, Tracy and Inka finished first in their competition - well done! Ruth topped that off by winning her age category. For the men, David Brown stormed round to finish 17th overall, fastest SLH athlete on the day, while there were good races too for Ross, Mark, Ben, Patrick and Riggers.
What's next? Well.....
The last weekend of April is, as usual, one of our busiest. It's the first of our seven club championships of the summer, the duathlon. Once again our club championship is the ful-on duathlon at Dunsfold Aerodrome (is it still the Top Gear test track now? Not sure) and we will hope for better luck with the weather than last year when it was hit by a hailstorm. Entries are still open if you're quick but based on entries as it stands David, Ross, Liam, Gary and Riggers will be contesting the men's competition while Ruth will be, well, winning the women's one.
That's not the only duathlon on this weekend. The ETU European Duathlon championships will be taking place in Alcobendas, on the outskirts of Madrid, on Sunday. Bob Harrison is in action for Great Britain, and Rob Drake has qualified (not certain to race though) but isn't there someone else who lives near there these days.....?
Yes, good luck Brendan and to all the Irrepressibles competing in Spain.
And good luck as well to Emma, Mark, Clance, Lesley and all other triathletes doing the London Marathon.
This week, from Thursday to Sunday, Michael Simmons will be cycling 330 miles over the course of four days completing the route of London to Amsterdam to raise money for the MS Society, and my Camps International trip to Cambodia. Good luck Michael. Details of how to sponsor him are on the forum.
Wednesday 3rd June. First in a series of 3.
Further details to follow.
