First up, and the reason why Kate McNeil has since been voted Best Newcomer for 2014. Kate has already proven to be a strong racer earlier this year, especially over the Middle Distance events, where her powerful bike leg has maximum effect.

On October 18th, after 2 days of food poisoning, Kate pulled on the GB kit to take part in the ETU Middle Distance Championships, hosted by Challenge Paguera in Majorca. A new event this year, it promised to be hot and hilly for all those competing.

Despite being ‘disappointed’ that illness curbed her ability to push, Kate finished a fantastic 3rd in her F30-34 AG and 6th AG woman overall, having showed everyone the way to do a bike leg, with a split 4 minutes ahead of her nearest rival, bringing Kate into T2 in the AG lead. Full splits were 31:31, 2:43:34 and 1:53:46 for an overall time of 5:16:13. Full Results available HERE For a full write up on the event, check out Kate’s BLOG on Compete PR website.

Working backwards through the month, Colin Surgeon entered the Huntsman Sprint Triathlon on the 12th. Colin comfortably won his age group and finished 8th overall on the 750m Swim, 21km Bike and 5km Trail Run. Times were : Swim 15.57, T1 1.16, Bike 39.43, T2 1.51, Run 24.50, Total 1.23.35 Full results HERE

Finally for multi-sport October, new member Alex Coppell headed to the  Snowman tri up in North Wales on Oct 5th  which is the end of the series of 3 (Slateman, Sandman, Snowman), run by the same group as the Huntsman tri that Colin did. The Snowman was a rather unusual Super-Sprint, with a 400m swim, 31km Bike and 5km trail run up Moel Siabod

Despite the distance, Alex would “thoroughly  endorse this race to anyone, it was by far the best event I’ve done this year despite the brutal hill run to finish, and beats the hell out of yet another boring slog around Dorney.” A total time of 2h17:21 , with splits of 9:19, 1:03:16 and 58:44  Full Results HERE
