The season is starting to draw to a close and this might turn out to be my final race of the year. It would be a very disappointing close to the year if the notably average venue of Box End was “it” for the year. But putting the venue aside what was the race like?
Hmmm… rubbish performance at a very average event, I think sums up my thoughts for the 2022 St. Neots Duathlon. Admittedly from a social point of view it was lovely to catch up with some old friends. And yes, I made some new friends too. So why so miserable about it?
Wow, what a great event! I think that sets the scene for my thoughts on my exploits up in North Wales at the Slateman Sprint Duathlon. For someone that has never been a fan of hills, trails or fast bike descents, training for and then racing this event rather took me out of my comfort […]
Set in the picturesque National Trust property of Clumber Park, the Tri Society Duathlon was a really enjoyable event and on quite a grand scale. Here are some post race thoughts and a little write up. But in brief; highly recommended. If you haven’t done it then certainly think about adding it to your calendar […]
What with the global pandemic disrupting multi-sport racing in the UK and focusing on keeping my fitness business growing, I have had little opportunity to go to any races. And therefore there has been a bit of an absence of my little “race reports”. But today I can put the record straight, and with nine […]
My first attempt at Duathlon and much delayed (has everyone’s events have been) due to the pandemic. A beautiful setting, pretty good course, average organisation and a poor performance (from me!) sums up my overall thoughts about this event. Would I go back? Probably not… So now lets get into the detail.
Let me get straight to the point – I was shockingly rubbish. Even falling short of the exceptionally low bar that I had set for myself! Beyond bad in just about every significant manner… So having got that out there, perhaps a short “race (event!) report” to document my first attempt at Crit Racing….
It’s already September and feels like I have not written a little race report in ages… Mostly because I haven’t! In fact, apart from racing at Duxford on foot today, the only other event for me so far in 2020 has been a TT on my bicycle hosted by BRCC. With all the new COViD […]
Last year I started to get a little lax in writing up race reports (or more accurately my mis-adventures getting in the way of people that know what they are doing!). This year, as we all know, looks VERY grim on the racing front. So I feel very lucky to have at least managed one […]
A fresh Sunday morning in Northamptonshire! And our running with my running club Olney Runners. The club organised a 10k race (basically one lap of the reservoir) for club members, their friends & family. But this year also opened it up to other local running clubs. What makes this such event is that all proceeds, […]
