    lizscottnewsletter1Christian Seymour took part in the Eton Sprint ITU Qualifier, 2nd in AG 1:05:57.  A great result to qualify for ITU World Championships.  Also, Leeds Castle Sprint, 1st in AG and 3rd overall 1:18:24.  A superb win and overall placing.

    Ian Mitchell competed in the Sevenoaks Sprint Triathlon,  4th in AG,  1:35:15 and Powerman St Wendel Long Distance ETU Duathlon Championships, 7th in AG, 3:48:45.  Two fine performances.

    Jude Hagger has had a busy and successful couple of months racing with an exceptional result at the Marshman. Sevenoaks Sprint Triathlon, 2nd in AG, 1:46:33, Marshman Middle Distance, 1st in AG and 2nd Woman overall, 5:14:09 and Kitzbuhel Standard Distance ETU Triathlon Championships, 25 in AG, 2:45:21.

    Nicola Pitcher took part in Swashbuckler Middle Distance, 7th AG, 7:06:00.  Ideal race practice ahead of IM UK.

    Barney Gray already has Ironman Texas, 11:25:48 and Ironman UK 70.3 Exmoor, 8th in AG, 5:34:29 under his belt.  A bit of fun before he turns to the serious business of IM Wales!

    Loree Trotman placed well in the Tonbridge Standard Distance, 3rd in AG, 2:05:00.  A strong effort in horrendous conditions to podium in her AG.

    andreawhitcombenewsletterNora Holford has done incredibly well with a combination of running events and triathlon. London Marathon, 3:46:00.  A personal best time and a well executed race.  Chalgrove 10k, 48:50. Another personal best time! Plus Cotswold 70.3, 11th in AG, 5:59:23.  An excellent result especially as this was Nora’s 70.3 debut with restricted bike training due to London Marathon preparation.

    Ray Zabarte took part in the Eton Dorney Sprint, 1:28:45.  A fitness boost after limited training because of work commitments.

    Masters Athletes

    Jennifer Millett competed in The Outlaw with an impressive overall time of 10:59:36, giving her 2nd place in her Age Group.  She said she had an incredible day and truly loved it apart from maybe the last 30k of the bike and the last 5 of the run before the finish!

    Scott Palmer took part in the Castle Howard Olympic Distance Triathlon with a time of 03:18:06.  Whilst he took around 7-8 minutes off his previous times, he still felt disappointed at the result as he was hoping to finish under 3hrs.  He felt that his swim went okay and during the cycle he felt like he was flying but time just seemed to get away from him and he’s really disappointed with the cycle time.  He had hoped to do the cycle somewhere near 1hr 30mins.  On the run he felt fine cardiovascularly, but his legs had little left in them and he couldn’t find a turn of pace. He had hoped to do the run in 50mins at the most.  His search for sub 3hrs continues and although he’s starting to think it will never happen we are determined to take him forward from this and help him to achieve his goal.

    David Doyle took on the challenge of The Bastion at Hever Castle, his first long distance event and completed in a commendable time of 15:03:15.

    Ben Marsh also took part in The Bastion with a finish time of 12:22:31, placing him 4th in his Age Group and 11th overall.

    Zoe Douglass competed in the Gauntlet Half Iron Distance at Hever Castle, coming 5th in her Age Group, with a time of 07:31:45.

    Anthony Whiteway took on his first ever triathlon with only 30 days training, The AJ Bell London Triathlon – Olympic Distance, and pulled in an impressive time of 02:49:14.

    Amanda Everitt enjoyed a non-wetsuit Leeds Castle sprint triathlon, with an overall time of 01:57:05.
