E News 2 November 2016


Interesting to watch the tactics used in the Off Road Triathlon on Sunday especially when it came to picking a line for the beach run!
Congrats to all the competitors who finished.  There were a few mechanicals along the way & a couple of lap counting oops moments, but everyone enjoyed the morning.

A huge thank you to: RD Luke Fronsko who spent hours setting up the course (and dismantling afterwards); Louise Lamb & Diane Napier who handled check in; Sarah Huddlestone on fruit | ice; Elliot Bolitho on marshalling; Margaret Black who did a mercy dash for more drinks and Robson Bond & Cherie Whitbread who braved jet lag to assist at our drink station.

We also appreciated the many people who helped with set up and pack down of transition on the day.  Thank you!
