Eton Sprints Triathlon (16th May)
750m/21.2k/5k (swim/bike/run)

Andrew Dench, 1:27:53
Completed in torrential rain for the second half of the bike leg and happy to still do a decent pace for the final run stage. The weather is still not that kind for multisports – the water temperature is no more than 14 degrees, and neither was the air temperature, with squalls of heavy rain adding to the fun. Even so, after a year of race cancellations and date changes, it’s worth taking the chance to race when you can, says Andrew

“The Nightcap” May 2021 Handicap Results

“The Nightcap” May 2021 Handicap Results

“The Nightcap” Handicap
May 2021 – 20/5/2021

 

The first time we have done a mid-week handicap with our new The Nightcap series. Ran the same course as we have been using for The Plank series and the same format, with an individual start. However, this race has no on the course marshal and just a minimal crew at the start and finish as if we needed a complete team we simply would not be able to put this on. Therefore, the course is marked with larger yellow signs with added luminous tape.

Was rather concerned throughout the day as the wind and rain were terrible.  However, the rain held off just giving the runners a strong crosswind to deal with along the pineapple, good job they only run up it once.

28 runners made it to the start with the fastest man being Luke Barker in 17:38, followed by a strong contingent of the sub-20 boys, before the first lady, Kat Alpe came in 7th in 20:19, shaving a second of her own ladies course record.

“The Plank” Handicap
April 2021 – 24/4/2021

 

Beautiful day in the park so a great day for our first race back since lock-down end, a boy where people ready to race!

Some great results across the field with Dougal Burrowes first home in an incredible 17:05! (He obviously had his Weetabix this morning.)

The fastest lady was Kat Alpe in 20:20, which on any other day would have put her in the top 3, but today with the sub 20 boys out in force and a few speedy juniors, put her 10th home, with 9 athletes doing a sub 20.

Chingford League Relays
Saturday 17th April 2021

 

On Saturday afternoon we headed over to a new venue in Dagenham for the Chingford League relays which is the end of season fixture. After such a turbulent 12 months, it’s been amazing to have the Chingford League races to look forward to and they are organised in a brilliant and Covid secure way by Adrian and the team.

Many members will know of our success in the relay competition over the past 10 years or so, with the Men’s team winning the fixture 6 years on the bounce from the 2011/12 season through to 2016/17. The Women’s team also lifted the Relay winner’s trophy in the 2017/18 season.

On the day we had 5 Women entered, with Kat, Fiona, Anja and Jessica making up the A team and Christine Hawker on an additional team. I must say a special thanks to Fiona for stepping up last minute to run after we lost a runner due to injury, and to Anja for pulling the team together. After a really strong run by Kat, and then Anja, we were right in the mix and within contention. A brilliant run from Fiona handed over to Jessica in 3rd place, and with a fantastic run she hunted down the ladies in front to storm home to victory by over 50 meters in the end!

Over to the Men’s race, where we had a scoring competition for the A team, Vets team and B Team. I must mention the Junior section of the club here, as 3 of our 4 runners in the Men’s A team had all been products of the Juniors, with young Cameron Bocchetti followed by returning members Dan Carpenter and Joe Young. With the addition of Dougal Burrowes, this was a stellar team made with birth years in the 1900’s and one in the 2000’s (sorry if that makes you feel old reading this!). Our B Team was very strong as well, comprising Will Douglas (another product of the juniors), Jim Arrowsmith, Ben Allen and the evergreen Scott Aiken.

After a storming first leg, Dan Carpenter gave us a 50-meter lead and handed over to Cameron who ran a brilliant leg and outsprinted London City to maintain the lead, Joe Young sped off to put us well in command and handed over to Dougal about 70 meters in front. A controlled last leg and Dougal bought the win home for the team, an outstanding effort and great to have that famous trophy back in its rightful place in Trent Park hands after a 3-year hiatus. Scott Aiken famously once said (during the week) that you can’t win anything with kids…. How wrong he was! 😄

On the other side, the B team looked in control from the outset and some strong legs and brilliant running gave that team a comfortable victory and another win for TP, as well as winning Division 1 for the season.

We can’t quite work out if there was a C team competition or not, but let’s assume there was and our team on the day of Mike Prior, Paul Brennan, Del Boy and Stuart Manktelow all individually ran great times in a really tricky race where they were effectively doing time trails against themselves due to the wave of starts for social distancing purposes. Our 4 Vet’s on the day taken from the above teams (Jim, Scott, Paul and Mike) were easy winners and rounded off a clean sweep for Trent Park across the board, as well as our Men’s Vets team winning the Chingford League Division 1 for the season. Well done also to the rest of the team who ran superbly on the day; Luke Bowie, Jason Hornett, Jeremy, Eamon, Ian Ellis and Chas. The relays are always a good bit of fun to round off the season and everybody came away with beaming smiles on their faces after the run, after a few minutes of waiting for the lactic acid to clear from their legs!!

That ended the shortened Chingford League season, and it’s been brilliant for this league to put some fixtures on for us recently. We ended the season with the below team results:

Men’s A Team – 3rd (Division 1)
Women’s A Team – 2nd (Division 1)
Men’s Vets – 1st (Division 1)
Women’s Vets – 5th (Division 1)
Men’s B Team – 1st (Division 1)
