It looked like a record turnout on a warm evening yesterday with 19 members and visitors taking part.
Due to the weather our Race Director wisely decided to shorten the planned route to a 1/10/1 format. Judging by everyone’s condition at the end of the evening I’d say that was a good call on Alan’s part.
Results below show visiting Louth Tri member Jon Bromfield romping away with a cracking time of 37:38! Well done Jono and good luck at the Europeans in Geneva later this month.
As always, good to see a ot of new faces and thanks to the marshalls, timekeepers and supporters who made this event possible. Also, thanks to David H for taking another set of great pictures.
Please make a note that the next event is only 2 weeks away on 16th July.
Will we see a return of “The Grueller” for a Shaun/Gary showdown? Let’s see.
Quick reminder that duathlon is this week at Click’em Inn as per usual-unsure of the distance-all will be revealed on Thursday!! -prompt as it may be the biggy-7pm
A big thank you to Charlie Boardman and the Saucy Fish Company who have kindly sponsored the new kit to the tune of £200 which will be used to subsidise every purchase made by members. I am currently waiting for samples and when I have them will bring to events for members to try
Please give me feedback on new kit version two and let me know which you prefer-this one or previous or neither with suggestions before I go to press !!
E-mail me at email@example.com
This weeks duathlon-Thursday 25th June is postponed due to a clash with the National Cycling Championship event at Cadwell Park which many members are attending. It will be rescheduled for next week instead-2nd July.
I have requested samples for the new kit so if they arrive by next week I will bring them to the duathlon for sizing etc
Have just received a new tri suit design from a new supplier called primal-See the image below. It has not yet been approved because I would like some feedback from your good selves whether you like/dislike or would like to see any alterations to the design-please give me your feedback and thoughts over the firstname.lastname@example.org
Tri suits will retail at £87-so I am hoping they are good quality-although our kind new sponsor the saucy fish company will be contributing a small amount off this price and the club will stump up for postage and packaging if a block order is placed
Look forward to your comments
It was another fine evening for last night’s Duathlon.
Alan set out the 2-10-2 course to entertain everyone and it didn’t disappoint.
An excellent turnout of 13 participants, all in high spirits, before the final 2 mile run that is.
Karen and Sam elected for a shorter 1 mile option, otherwise everyone tackled the full distance.
Once again, Gary T romped home in a blistering time, with Shane taking the honors on the night for the fastest bike split.
Quickest lady for the full distance was Kate; next time do the 2 mile run Karen ;)
Thanks to David Herriot who took some excellent pictures which have been posted in the club Facebook group.
As always, thanks to those who supported this event by marshalling and time-keeping. We (literally) cannot do it without you. And, of course, thanks to Alan and Sarah for setting up another great club event.
Finally, just a reminder that the next event is June 25th. I heard a whisper that the fabled “Grueller” may be returning (2-14-2) so we’ll see if that can tempt Shaun R out to challenge our Chairman.
Good luck to everyone racing at Woodhall on the 14th June.
Well done to everyone who came out to marshall, support and take part in last night’s duathlon.
Certainly more chilly than our last outing, which is probably why Alan decided to warm us all up with a 1/14/1 taking in Limber Hill and Binkbrook.
This time Gary T was pipped by a returning Shaun R who, despite protesting his lack of running, still managed to hold off the Chairman by 5 seconds thanks to a stonking bike leg.
Hopefully we’ll see a rematch later in the season when “The Grueller” 2-14-2 returns!
Helen’s DNF on the bike is a tad unfair, since she did actually complete the ride, albeit she decided to take a more scenic route than the one posted.
Thanks again to Shane and Tony for marshalling, to Sarah for the timekeeping, to all the supporters who came out to cheer on and generally harrass us all through transition, and , of course, to Alan for organising another fun event.
The Grimsby Tri inaugural ladies duathlon took place last night at the Clickem Inn. It was very well attended and excellent performances from all.
Many thanks to Marshals Nina and Ian, Gary and Charles, and to Alan for setting up, and Kate for rider support.
We hope to see you all again soon.

What a start to the season. Perfect weather for the first Duathlon and a great turnout.
The course was a 1m run / 10m bike / 1m run. Shaun and Helen opted for a relay and Dave R biked only. Despite protesting not being “bike fit”, our Chairman still managed to show everyone a clean pair of heels.
As always, a big thank you to everyone who came to marshall and support this event, plus thanks to David Herriott for taking some great photos and sharing them on the club facebook group.
A special mention of thanks also to Alan and Sarah for organising this event.
Next Duathlon is a ladies only affair run by Karen Hames on 7th May.
Just a quick reminder that our first duathlon of the summer series is this Thursday starting at 7pm from the Click’em Inn, Binbrook. Please try and support this event in any way you can by either competing, timing or marshalling. Cost is free to all paid up members and is excellent preparation for your racing season.
