Aquathlon 2019

Aquathlon 2019

Thanks for everyone who came to the Aquathlon yesterday. We had perfect weather thankfully and a good turnout. We had a couple of teething problems with the new run course, which we will sort out for next year – but everything else went smoothly. Special thanks to all the volunteers who helped me manage this pretty complex undertaking. I’d appreciate any feedback on the race, so that we can look to make it even better in the future.

February 2019 Handicap Results

The first time we combined the Senior and junior events to run on the same day and the weather played its part giving ideal conditions for fast times.

A few changes for both the seniors and juniors causing some confusion for both but it all worked out wonderfully in the end even if it did look like organised chaos. In total, we had 109 finishers, 72 seniors, 25 Young Athletes (over 11) and 12 Juniors (under 11). 

First Junior (under 11) home was Max Gilzean in 9:56, closely followed by Alfie Downs in 9:59 then Bethan O’Shea in 10:05. Statistically surprising this order was reversed for the handicap results with Bethan first improving by 11.936%, the Alfie with a 7.562% and the Max with -1.188%.

For the Young Athletes (over 11) it was David Sleeman first across the line in 12:39, then Benjamin Woolf in 13:15 and Ronan Ozdural 13:45. For the Handicap Sophie Moran with a 10.25% improvement, then David Sleeman, 7.88% followed by William Grimsdell with a 4.282% improvement. 

Mixed in with the juniors, the seniors started to come through. Charlie Bruce the first senior home, skillfully weaving around the juniors to finish in 18:00, with Scott Aiken in 18:10, and Chris Adams in 19:14. First lady home was Emily Clarke is 21:01 (so close to breaking 21 minutes).  Handicap results where Dean Anderson with an 18.1% improvement, Katherine Atkinson with an 11.089% improvement and breaking 30 minutes for the first time in 29:16, then Paul Nevin with a 7.053% improvement.

Annual General Meeting 2018

This year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place at the Hockey Centre on Monday 29th October 2018. The meeting will start at 7:30 pm sharp. You will see over coming weeks details of the agenda, requests for items for the agenda and submissions for committee places. It is very important that you all attend the AGM. This club is very much a members club run by members for the members. Please play your part in the running of the Club. The best way to do that is by attending the AGM and play your part in the decisions made.

We are keen to avoid using masses of paper which largely gets thrown in the bin. We do not intend to print all the information for everyone. especially as we have no idea what the attendance will be. If you need a copy for the evening can I suggest you bring your own copies or better still use your own electronic devices instead of paper. I hope we haven’t opened things up to phones going off all night.

Updated: 15/10/2018 with forms and agenda
