Annual Triathlon and Biathlon

Another successful Club Triathlon and Biathlon

Sunday 17th April saw the Club's Annual Triathlon and Biathlon go ahead with a total number of 43 competitors completing the two individual courses. 

It was a very chilly 5am start to complete set up, the staff and volunteers worked brilliantly to ensure the pool, transition area and checkpoints were set up and manned, ready for a 7am start. The 43 participants completed a 200m swim in the indoor pool before drying off and taking to their bicycles. The route through and around Richmond Park can't have many equals for beauty, or additional cyclists to avoid! Once back at the Club, the small matter of a three mile run back around the Tamsin Trail in Richmond Park needed completing before finishing on the Piazza. From a very cold start, the day soon warmed up and the entire event was completed two and a half hours later! Richard Brimelow came home first in the Men's Triathlon category, with Derk Ohler winning the Men's Biathlon. The Bristow Family (Jemima, Georgina and Luke) won the Family Relay Event. Katie Moss crossed the line first in the women's event, with Joanna Shillington winning the Women's Biathlon and Ella Horncastle posting a fantastic time to win the Under 18's category. Once again, the Members and guests who participated in the event helped to make it a wonderful morning, so I would like to thank them all for contributing and for their effort. In addition, and as always, the staff who helped to set up and man the checkpoints deserve a special mention, for helping to ensure the event ran smoothly and safely.
