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
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.

We thought that other members might be interested in a race report of Tony Ogden’s recent experience of the Outlaw Triathlon.
I did my first triathlon in 1989 and graduated up to ironman distance by completing The Longest Day in Wolverhamption in 1996 and 1999. In those days, there was only one ironman distance event each year in the UK, and a race with 100 competitors was a big field.
When the golden handcuffs (ie married life) and the kids came along I took a break of 11 years from triathlon before waking up to the realisation that I had not felt quite the same since and so I signed up for the very first Outlaw triathlon in 2010. When I told Mrs O, she gave me one of those motivational one-liners that only a long term partner can- “You idiot, you’ll never do it.” That seemed reason enough. I also did it in 2012.
This year’s performance marks my 50th year, and 26 years since my first triathlon, which just goes to show that if it is worth doing, then it is worth doing badly.
Just for the record books, I managed to complete The Outlaw yesterday in a time of 13:02:55. It was my best time for the course by 22 seconds. 53rd out of 101 finishers in my age group- there has to be some advantages to turning 50- and 588 out of 986 finishers overall. No dramas, just slow!
Thanks for the report Tony.
If any other members want to share their recent race experiences, please forward your report to Gary T.
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.
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.
Thanks to Charlie B running last week’s Duathlon and to Pete Goy for marshalling.

Well done to Nick Bailey for flying the Grimsby Tri flag at yesterday’s Outlaw. Nick completed the iron distance event in 12:11:58.
