Looking ahead to next year, here’s a couple of dates for your diary.
The Grimsby Triathlon Club Annual Dinner is set for Friday 10th February 2017 at the Mill House, Covenham. Karen Hames is organising and will post more details nearer the time.
Also, don’t forget to get signed up for the Cleveland Steelman half ironman distance triathlon on Saturday 15th July 2017.
Looking at the start-list so far you’ll be in good company.
What can I say… we’re gonna need more scaffold poles!
Fantastic turnout for the first Duathlon of the season with 30 runners and riders.
It was a great evening for the 1-10-1 course. Tom Sanigar romped home with an impressive 40:29 overall, closely followed by Sean Robinson who I think was hampered by the beard.
Here’s the results:
Apologies if I’ve got any names wrong, the time-sheet got a little sketchy to the end and I’m not sure if Dr Valentine is a real person but it sounds good 🙂
Just in case… here’s the original time-sheet.
As always, thanks to Alan and Sarah for organising the event and timekeeping, as well as to Karen H and Matt C for marshalling. Special thanks for Matt for the photos too, and to everyone who can to support and cheer us all on.
Looking forward to the next one already on May 12th
Unfortunately the Duathlon planned for this Sunday is cancelled. Apologies to all that responded but due to the lack of numbers and it clashes with a number of other events.
As we have prepared the course we have re-scheduled for the following Sunday 18th October. All details as previously posted.
Please let Karen H know sometime next week if you can make this new date.
Details from Karen H about next Sunday’s Autumn Duathlon, 11th October.
The distances are (approx) Run 1: 3300m Bike: 7000m Run 2: 3000m.
Those who wish to just run there is option of a 6300m run or for the more adventurous 12400m!
Can you please let Karen know direct if you are attending (for catering) so we have rough numbers.
The course in the woodlands is dry at the moment however there is some rain forecast this week so it might be a bit soft in places.
Cost is £2 contribution towards food. See you there!

The weather managed to stay dry for a great turnout at the last Clickem event for 2015.
24 members arrived ready to tackle a 10 mile time trial, only to find our that Alan had other plans.
In the end, with a couple of extra loops put in, it was a 15 mile(ish) cycle route ending back at the Clickem for a champions buffet and a little club banter.
As usual, thanks to everyone who turned out to not only take part but also to support the event, marshall and time-keep.
A special thanks goes out from the club to Alan and Sarah who have organised an excellent series of events which have helped make 2015 one of the best club turnouts we’ve seen over recent years.
Karen H will be organising an Offroad Duathlon (MTB required) plus a Trail Run for those who don’t want to bike at Elsham in Oct (watch this space for details).
Finally, everyone at the club wishes Karen good luck when she is competing for Team GB in Chicago in a couple of weeks.
Results from the last weeks Duathlon are here:
|Surname||First Name||Run 1||PLACE (1)||Bike||PLACE (2)||Run 2||Overall||Final Place||Notes|
|McCORT/ GREEN||SIAN/ STEVE||6.29||6||32.26||8||7.11||46.06||7||W2, Team|
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.
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.
