Arundel Triathlon – 16th July 2017

A very early start was required for the Arundel Triathlon last Sunday. The swim in the Arun needed to coincide with high water (06:00hrs) – or most of the competitors would have been swept out to sea! The race was a qualifier for the World Age Group Championships to be held in Rotterdam in September, so a competitive race was guaranteed. Steyning AC had 6 entries, 4 of which were trying to qualify. The swim (being current assisted) was fast, but both the bike and run were hilly and challenging. Congratulations to both Joan and Jon Ford-Dunn who  won their age groups. A special congratulations to Simon Turk who finished 8th in his very competitive age group. Hard lines to Lydia – again in a very competitive age group, who finished 18th – and now is going to have to train for the Challenge Roth Ironman event!

All praise to RawEnergyPersuits  for their organisation of an enjoyable event, and thanks to Martin Hesketh for providing the commentary – even with the ‘fake news’ of Jon Ford-Dunn’s birthday! Also thanks to our supporters (Barbara & Martin Ford-Dunn) – I think all were in need of encouragement to get up the hill on the second lap of the run!
