Its Race Week !!!

Excitement is building for the upcoming Sheephaven Half & Sprint this weekend, kindly sponsored by The Downing’s Bay Hotel. The Sheephaven Half has established itself as a firm favorite with triathletes. This year sees the inaugural Sheephaven Sprint. A shorter distance with the same amount of fun and hopefully plenty sun! Best of luck to everyone taking part. Anyone available to help with the preparations Thursday night, Friday or Saturday get in contact with Gavin.

A big Thank You to the Downing’s Bay Hotel for their generous support and sponsorship of our event. Your contribution has been invaluable and greatly appreciated.

European Triathlon Multisport Championships

Not a lot of racing from club members this weekend. Perhaps in rest mode ahead of next weekend?! Two club members very rarely seen in rest mode are Harriet and Hugh.

Hugh Gallagher and Harriett Henderson travelled to Portugal to compete at the Europe Triathlon Multisport Championships in Coimbra. Both raced the Middle distance event. Well done to both.

Hugh Gallagher 5:06:23 (19th AG)

Harriet Henderson 5:32:15 (12th AG)
