News of your triumphs (and disasters), please

Please be sure to post news of any races you have done this weekend. I see we already have reports from the Weybridge 10k, Great Barrow, Woodhall Estate and Michelle's latest crazy mission - plus the FSOTM results. But do let us know about anything else. I think we had several representatives at the Hitchin Triathlon.

Do please send any photos to publicity@nhrr.org.uk

Standing by....

Re: News of your triumphs (and disasters), please

I’m a triathlete! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I completed Hitchin Tri, my first one, I really enjoyed it! What a day for it too. Great sunshine. And was great to see some squirrels there racing and in support. Was a great event too, well organised and really friendly, especially to people who didn’t have a clue what they were doing, such as I. #kudos to HRC. I was 19th overall. And 10th in category. My run was my best position but I don’t know how, I really struggled to run off the bike, it’s horrible! Pleased with the result given my recent fitness. And I’ll defo do more. If you fancy a crack at it, defo make a note of this event for next year.

Re: News of your triumphs (and disasters), please

Took part in the 1st of the Midsummer Series 5 mile race at Woodhall Estate on Thursday along with 4 fellow squirrels. Finished 35th overall and 4th lady in a chip time of 41.04. It was extremely hot, even with a 7.30pm start and there were some pretty tough hills to tackle, but was a really enjoyable mostly cross country course.

There was a photographer there who captured some lovely shots of us all which I can send on.

Thanks, Jill

And from the Ware 10m:

Astrid won overall in 1:09:11
Much appreciated by Astrid and the rest of the competitors were being hosed down by local residents whilst running - nice touch. She didn't see any other NHRR runners - post if you were there :slightly_smiling_face:

Hitchin triathlon for me too, 128th and 13th in category finishing in 1:27:25

Knocked over a minute off last years time improving my swim by 1m30 and the bike leg by a minute. My run was fairly dire though :-( need to do more running training...

If you have ever fancied a tri, give this a go, local and friendly.

Re: News of your triumphs (and disasters), please

Today was the second running of the Hitchin Triathlon, centred at the outdoor pool. It was also my second attempt having races it last year too. I did much better this year having a far better swim (2m30s quicker), a slightly faster bike ride (1min quicker) and a much faster run (2m30s quicker). I did lose some time in transition but improved overall by approx 5 mins! Well done to all the other NHRR squirrels out there today!!

I finished in 1:22:58, 96th over all and 12th in age category (out of 31, including the formidable winner Steve McKeown!)
