This was the first time I (Aimee) have done the Brats triathlon. It was a nice small well organised event (and a good price too).
This was Sam’s first standard distance. He was a bit worried about the swim, but he did a cracking time of 31 minutes!
The swim could have done with a few more buoys. The first one was 750m away. But that was to my advantage as I sight well and everyone else was swimming miles out.
The bike course was two laps for the standard distance (there was a sprint distance racing going on at the same time), and quite fast and flat. Sam decided to follow a sprint distance competitor back to the venue before realising he needed to go back and do a second lap! I am glad I am not the only one that adds a few miles to a race!
So if Sam does this again next year, he will smash his time easily! And beat me! 🙁
The run was 4 laps of a fairly flat easy route with one short sharp hill.
Good and enjoyable race. I think we need a few more from the club to join us and race.
