Cheltenham Triathlon Club
For experienced and aspiring triathletes

 

After a chilly start, the course began at Speech House and then followed the trails through the Forest of Dean to return to the finish at Speech House. Varied surface of road, forest trails and some nasty cobbles, together with some tough up & downhill sections, including an uphill struggle around the last few miles, BUT, it was a great event with a total of 1834 finishers (1179 men, 655 women).

Fastest time was 1:13:20, the slowest 3:52:12 with an average time of 1:59:29. We experienced the usual massive queues for the loos but I don't think anyone got stuck in the loo when the race had started this year! A tough event I thought (the course has changed & Neil reliably told me it's much tougher now) but the boys humour generally kept everyone going, and for the first time ever in a running event, I finished quicker than the average finish time, albeit by one second!!!!! Something must be going right ... Karen.
