Blaenafon Triathlon – Simon


1st Triathlon of the season for me, but my god do I pick them!! This was my toughest to date, due to the Welsh mountains, rain and wind; it’s voted one of the toughest in the UK and I know why now,  after nearly pulling out with close to hypothermia!!!
I thankfully managed to finish the 800m swim, 28 miles biking of 330m climbing in wind and rain followed by a 7 mile off road mountain run,   happy finishing in tough conditions, 3rd vet and 9th overrall. This race is not for the faint hearted but for crazy people like myself!!

  1. Nominations are now open for the vacant post of “Club Nutter”. That is a good opening gambit from you, Simon, but I think that you will face stiff competition from the 2 Garys, with others waiting in the wings.

  2. That’s the thing in this club; you give out awards and then can’t remember who has them!
