Race Updates

A flood of race results over the past weeks ranging from first time triathletes, born again triathletes, European Championships, a relay team takeover and a podium lock out, lots to get through!

Knockburn Mixed Relay Triathlon Scottish Championship

5 M3 Teams entered on the day, for a fun, fast & frantic dash through Knockburns triathlon facilities, even the sun made an appearance. To top it off, the M3 Champs team came 2nd in the Championship Race. Special mention to Presidente Tom, for completing the bike & Run segment of this relay with a dislocated toe, Barbara for stepping in after her earlier race & injury, and finally Michelle for organising! Well done to all who took part

The LONG list of results follows:

Outlaw Half

Last month Emma Donaldson, Kathy Robertson, Dean Horton, John Wigham and Mark Hopkins traveled down to Nottingham to race the Outlaw half. A fantastic weekend of racing in Nottingham with a sprint distance on Saturday and the main event on the Sunday. It was a cold day for racing compared to the previous couple of days. Jackets and scarves kind of weather rather than tri suits but once everyone got their game faces on temperature was quickly forgotten about (until they tried to run on frozen toes) A great race and a great venue, it would be fantastic if Monikie Park had half the amenities of Holme Pierrepont Water Sports Centre. Results were:
