Granite Man 2015

Nicky and Grant at Granite Man 2015

Swim-1st Tri Club Head Coach Grant Mansfield and Swim-1st Tri Club Triathlete Nicky Wilson took on the fun...grueling task that is Granite Man in Guernsey. This is a half iron distance race made up of 1.9km Swim, 90km Bike and a half marathon 21.1km Run! A brilliant effort from both, here is Nicky's report:

It was over a year ago Grant suggested we should enter Granite Man and at the time I thought it was a great idea! I must admit I had a few wobbles in self confidence in past year as to whether I could do it - especially the swim leg. 

Junior Success at Deal Duathlon

Swim-1st Junior Triathletes Success.

Sunday 13th September 2015 saw the last race of the Triathlon England Junior Race South East Series.

It was a Duathlon that took place in Deal, Kent. A Duathlon is made up of a Run-Bike-Run event.  At the Deal Duathlon they had exclusive use of the whole of the tarmac cycling track offering safe, traffic-free bike courses, as well as the use of pleasant off-road trails for the run courses. Its not often the juniors get a chance to race on tarmac which is significantly faster than grass.

GOLD for Henry

Cycling Alphabet Challenge 2014

Cycling Alphabet Challenge 2014 Champions

Swim-1st Tri Club organised their first Cycling Alphabet Challenge, held on a lovely rainy morning on Sunday 2nd November 2014.

The Cycling Alphabet Challenge was organised as something different for our members to do at the end of the season. Instead of checking heart rates and bike computers this training social was fun...loads of fun. Involving teamwork, sense of direction and a dash of competitiveness!

We had two teams captained by none other that our club Chairman, Kevin 'mean-ish machine' Hudson and Head Coach, Grant 'funniest photo' Mansfield.
