A quick whistle-stop tour of some events in August that were not either British/World or Club Champs.

First up is actually a July race we missed for Jason Roberts, who did the  Cotswold Standard Distance on 20th July.  With splits 23:07,  1:05:15 and 42:03, Jason was 20th overall in 2.12.40 – a PB of over 6 mins, with the run unusually  showing as the strongest discipline.   Full Results – HERE

Also in the Cotswolds two weeks later, Matt Eckett, Steve Fuller and Julia Hodkinson all enjoyed a ‘lovely 6 lap muddy’ 9km Run, after a 41k bike and 1500m swim.   Some shockingly hard to read Results mean that I can’t give you all the splits easily, but overall the guys did 2:27:36, 2:27:41 and 2:36:07 respectively – Full Results HERE

Paul Fitzpatrick did one last Sprint before heading to Canada at the  Gatorade Evening Triathlon  on the 6th. Over the same course as the  Club Champs, Paul was 4th overall in a time of  1:02:04

Skipping the thrill rides and jumping in the lake instead, Jon Elliot, Alex Coppell, Colin Surgeon & Chris Weeks  went to Thorpe Park on the 17th for Race 4 of the lake’s own Sprint Series.  Full Results HERE

Finally, club Newbie and rapidly becoming a regular competitive triathlete 🙂 Joanne Nimmo knocked out yet another super-sprint race at Hampton Pool based Sprint series on the 25th

With splits of  9:22, 47:23 & 26:10, for a final time of 1:28:56. Joanne was in 15th in the F35-39
In Joanne’s own words “Recommend it for beginners as heated outdoor pool is a lovely thing, especially in grim Bank Holiday rainy weather! Small trauma in that as I un-racked my bike the rack collapsed and a kind fellow competitor did me a good turn by picking up all the bikes and let me go and race. Potentially more of a trauma for those who had more expensive bikes than me”

So you may not want to rack near Joanne in coming races! Full Results HERE
