The Northumbrian Half IM – Sunday 2nd July 2023

If I remember right, I got sucked into this event because a friend (Jill Muirden) wanted to take on a half IM before she reached 50. I agreed I’d do it with her – this was back in 2021. Jill, however, had injuries that completely hampered her running programme – […]

Southport Sprint (Worlds Qualifier)

After a disappointing 2022 Team GB qualification due to getting Covid at the wrong time I had decided to really focus and train properly for 2023.  My experience in Munich at the Europeans which are now draft legal meant I had to significantly improve my swimming to be competitive and […]

This race report is part of my “therapy” since my triathlon life was abruptly stopped. “How could it have happened to me?” […]

It had been a while since I’d raced a standard and taking part in Leeds gave me a chance to watch the elite race and also get a good training session for my main goal of Sprints later in the season. Unfortunately, after a good start to the year getting […]

Strada Bianchi Race Report 2022

After a couple of years of monthly savings and Covid delaying the trip Jeroen and I (with wives for moral support) were finally getting to go to ride Strada Bianchi in Italy.  It is quite a new pro race but has quickly gained a reputation that many think it should […]

Aviemore Triathlon (1k swim, c18k MTB, c8k run)

Ok, so I’m not a huge fan of doing race reports. Think its because I tend to avoid reflecting too much on the event post race, so the memory fades quite quickly and I use that as an excuse not to document them! Why don’t I reflect..? Probably because I […]
