AGM 2014


Welcome to Ryton Triathlon Club

Florida Ironman
I had to read the time that Alan Blakie did this race several times over. He did the whole race in a time that some couldn't even run a marathon in!! Total time....... wait for it...... 4 hours 27 mins - 6th in his age group (out of 180). Swim time: 32 mins, bike: 2 hrs 23 mins, run: 1hr 28 mins! Blimey!!

Ryton-Tri 2 Up TT
Congratulations go to Chris Isats and Harry Armstrong, winners of 2-up TT held on the 12th of April. Full results can be found here.

Morpeth Duathlon
The first of the races for 2014 began with the Morpeth Duathlon. Representing Ryton Tri were Joel Atkin - who came 1st in the beginners' race. In the standard race - Fred Smith - 4th in the super-vets category (and 26th overall) - and Hedley Flectcher - 6th in his age group and 23rd overall.

Los Cabos (Mexico) Ironman
Continuing his world tour of Ironman competitions... Eric Blakie came 7th in his age group in this competition.

Elite Youth Duathlon - Rockingham
Congratulations go to Kate Waugh who won this competition. At her post-race interview, Kate said "It's amazing [here], this whole stadium is huge – it's amazing, I felt really famous. It was a really good course and everyone worked together really well on the bike. The run was hard but I'm glad I had enough in my legs to finish. “I'm hoping to do well in the rest of the [British Triathlon Youth Super] Series. There is Blenheim Triathlon, which should be good; I'm really looking forward to doing that one.”

Also competing were Philippa Chambers & Robyn Waugh finishing 6th & 8th. Both girls are in 17-19 category and are first year juniors so this is a great result.

Duathlon World Championships

Last year, I began the year with news about our young 'uns accomplishments. This year, I begin the news from our not so young 'uns... (and no, it's not news about Big-E!!)

Congratulations to Richard Sill for coming 5th in his age group at the Dambuster Duathlon on the 8th of March and thereby qualifying for the World Duathlon Championships in Pontevedra in May.
