It all started when Tony said ‘how do you fancy a weekend in Nottingham in August?’ oh yes I thought, it’s a great place for shopping ‘it’s the National Triathlon relay weekend and Ollie is organising teams from Lincsquad. We can all camp together, it’ll be a brilliant weekend’ Camping?? Triathlon?? Camping?? I don’t know what scared me the most…
Standing brushing my teeth on Sunday morning I looked into the mirror to see an equally nervous and sick looking Shona behind me, half an hour later Julie wandered across with Tony towards our tent looking green. These were definitely not the same three people that the night before had been joking about carb loading and enjoying the party spirit. This was now real and about to actually happen!!!
Anyone who was at this years Keyo Brigg Bomber would ‘ve noticed the group of newbies who laughed and smiled their way around this years Bomber course which they were using as prep for their A race – The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quad.
Here is their race report.
The Hathersage Hilly Triathlon 2015 – Andrew Lawson’s Race Report
With the possible exception of Lincsquad’s own Brigg Sprint, the Hathersage Hilly is my favourite triathlon – I do like hills and as it says on the tee shirt, “It’s not flat”. The scenery is beautiful and there’s a friendly atmosphere. It’s quite a challenging course – The Sufferfest is one of the sponsors and whilst quite a few sprint triathlons have course records of less than an hour, the fastest time at this year’s Hilly was around 1 hour 13 minutes.
