Hever Castle Triathlon
It was hard to believe that we were at the end of the triathlon season and yet this was our first big club outing of 2020! We were so grateful for so many of us to have the opportunity to race at Hever given everything that 2020 has thrown at us. It was slightly different to the norm because of all the social distancing measures in place but we still managed to have a fabulous (if a little chilly!) weekend camping.
Day 1 at Hever Castle Triathlon started early with an adult sprint triathlon for Lottie (15), Thomas (16), Millie (18) and Ali (age not to be revealed). The lake swim was a very chilly 13 degrees and they all performed brilliantly and did the club proud with their results, hever castle triathlon 2020. You don’t need to scroll too far down the results to find three out of four of them!
In the afternoon, it was the turn of Jasper in the 9-10 year old race and Elsie and Emily in the 8 year olds race. We are SO SO proud that you jumped into that freezing cold lake and then went on to give the bike and run your absolute best. You are our little superstars. Special mention should go to Emily for coming 1st in her event.
First to go off the following day was coach Mark in the standard distance triathlon. After the little ones had shown what tough stuff they were made of by swimming in the freezing lake the day before, he had no choice but to jump straight in the water!!!! Our chairman Phil took on the tough standard duathlon. Well done to you guys.
In the afternoon it was the turn of more of our juniors, some of whom were taking on their very first triathlon. Gethin, Henry and Billy were first off in the 15-16 year old race. Special well done hever castle triathlon 2020 just turned 15 Gethin for his podium place. This was followed by James and Ben in the 13-14 year old race and finally Phoebe, Darcey, hever castle triathlon 2020, Katie and Martin in the 11-12 year olds race. Along with the feeezing water they also had to contend between them with a lost timing chip, a fallen off chain, a fall off the bike and struggling through the run with a painful injury which all hever castle triathlon 2020 their amazing determination. You all did the club so proud.
What a brilliant bunch of young athletes we have. It was a pleasure to watch you over the weekend.
We were very grateful for all the efforts Castle Triathlon Series put into this event and it felt good to be back racing again.
