Haywards Heath Entrants 2012
Haywards Heath Sprint Triathlon Entrants as @ 12/03/2012
This week's bike session is our 'classic' brick session on Farthing Downs. Bring your running shoes as well as bike shoes because there's the option of alternating cycling down and up the hill with a run along the top of the downs, and with transition training for T2 to boot. Mark Cawood will be taking the session. Cost £2 and meet at the clubhouse at 6:45pm or at the Farthing Downs tea rooms (location on this page) for a 7:00pm start and if you're going, please post on the forum thread to give an idea of numbers.
It's Friday so naturally it's time for a round-up of what happened last weekend. Oops.
Anyway we had our club sprint championships at Crystal Palace and there were wins for Ruth Hutton (her second this year after winning the duathlon too) and Ian Taylor. Ruth's performance was particularly notable as she was third female overall, won her age group and got a nice picture of her and Mark onto tri247's race report (photo below, credit to ProSport Photos).
This race and East Grinstead are normally two of our most popular - unfortunately they clashed this year resulting in reduced number of maroon army at each. Jim Burdett finished fourth at East Grinstead and Patrick Bew and Nick Bailey both completed their first triathlons, among a still-decent SLH turnout.
On the other side of London, Rachel Coe-O'Brien took on the British age-group sprint tri championships in St Neots and stormed round to finish fifth in her age group.
And in Majorca, Steve Rigby spent six hours sunning himself. And completing an Iroman 70.3 at the same time. Who says men can't multitask. After last year when he completed the swim one handed only to get on his bike and have it almost immediately fail on him it was great that it went so well.
Well done everyone, great weekend's work. A well-deserved weekend off for most of us this week.
