Graham Ellwood’s Report from the Hottest London Marathon on Record

Time to gather my thoughts after an amazing weekend at the London Marathon. I put a lot of training in to prepare for this event, over 900 miles for the year before the day itself. Wasn’t sure the speed was there, but my heart rates for any given pace were at an all time low, which gave me hope the sub 3 was on. Leading up to the last few days the forecast was not good, they were expecting record temperatures and suggesting you need to revise you goals down accordingly.

Duathlon results 18th April

Well what a difference two weeks can make to the weather. A lovely warm summer night shone on the 59 athletes who entered the second in the Scunthorpe Triathlon clubs training race series.

Some new faces, and some very old, all race as hard as they could to complete the 2ish 13ish 1 mile course (with yet another new run route set out by the Club Chairman Jason Frary).

Once again some amazing results, with 6 minutes separating the top 14 men and 10 minutes for the top 5 women.

Two weeks-time should see us return to Burringham for the third training race which is the Handicap.

We are also taking charity donations for this year’s worthy cause so if you could spare a few Quid we would be very grateful.

Attached are the final results from training race 1 and the provisional results for training race 2.

2018 Training race 2 results

2018 Training race 1 results

As always if you have any problems with the results please contact me direct at jeff.chappill@hotmail.com as no post on either the Lincsquad forum or Facebook will be responded to.

Lincsquad Flying at Scampton

It had been a last minute decision to take part in the Duathlon at Scampton in 2017 and only then so I could get onto the base to have look around, and hopefully see the Red Arrows. It was a fantastic event and the bike section was very fast, so I knew I was going to be booking again for 2018 (and NOT at the last minute, this time). Read the rest of this entry »

Duathlon results 4th April

Wednesday the 4th April marked the return of the Scunthorpe Triathlon clubs Summer series.

Having had to have a last minute change of venue, due to potholes and road works, we hope for a lovely evening and the sun would shine down on all those who turned out. How wrong could we be, the heavens opened, the wind picked up, yet 42 people still signed on the dotted line to take part.

Our Time keepers and marshal turned out on mass to support the athletes and watch in amazement as they battled the conditions with the much heard “they must be mad” comment uttered under their breaths. Read the rest of this entry »
