Congratulations to Brighton Phoenix Tri’s Thomas Hopkins and Sharon Young from Virgin Active Brighton for winning the Standard race. As usual there was some close racing in the Sprint race with Gary Laybourne (SLH Tri) winning in 53:06. Torq Fitness’s Louise Bardsley dominated the female category but also finished 7th overall; very impressive. READ MORE
Race day is looming so don’t forget to read the race details and maps which are on the website. You need to be on poolside 10-15 minutes before your start time as detailed in the swim start list. We’re hoping to get all athletes on road this year by 0930hrs. As in previous years, some of you will encounter the cycling time trial that uses part of this course. Both sets of marshals are aware of each other’s race, but please make sure you’re familiar with the course BEFORE arriving. If someone rockets by you on the cycle don’t be too disheartened, it’s probably the National Champion Michael Hutchinson clocking another 46min for a 25mile TT! READ MORE
