Our 2015 season is over and what a success it turned out to be with some great racing & open water swim training throughout the year. The season started with our open water swim training on the 7th May at the QE2 lake, Woodhorn and continued every Thursday evening from 18:00 to 20:00 until the end of July. It was extremely popular, with triathletes and open water swimmers a like, making it their main weekly session throughout the summer months.
Our first race took place on the 7th June with the Northumberland Triathlon - Druridge bay Country Park is a superb venue for a 'First Class' event. The ever popular event was sold out again in 2015 and even some very windy conditions the day before could not hamper our preparations. Testament to the venue, our Sprint and Standard events proceeded seamlessly and were enjoyed by all in blazing hot sunshine. The standard of racing was again superb, and spectators were out in force to cheer the competitors on and provide a truly amazing atmosphere. Feedback has been great and the event was again a massive success.
Next up on the 18th July we had the QE2 Woodhorn Museum Triathlon at the stunning QE2 Country Park. This is a Triathlon England 2 Star Mark of Quality event and Woodhorn Museum is another perfect venue for Triathlon. After its success in 2014 it was again a 'must do' event in 2015. The 'undulating' bike route really tested the competitors but rewarded them with some breath-taking coastal views along the way. An exhilarating run on the footpath winding its way through the woodland surrounding the lake and through the impressive Museum Grounds was ideal for spectators to cheer everyone on to a great finish in spectacular surroundings. More great reviews and another massive success!
Entries for our 2016 events will open in November 2015.
