Erewash Triathlon and Junior Triathlon !

On Sunday the 19th August the roads of Long Eaton will again be rocked by the participants of Erewash Sprint Triathlon as they swim, bike and run their way around Long Eaton and West Park. Now in it’s 11th year, the triathlon is perfect for beginners featuring a 400m (16 lengths) of the pool at West Park Leisure Centre; a 16km (10 mile) cycle around a mostly flat course through the picturesque Derbyshire countryside; then a 5km (3.2 miles) run of 2 laps of the Parkrun route set in the 127 acres of the beautiful West Park.

There is also a junior event, one of a few in the area. The swim is set in the West Park Leisure Centre and leads onto the multi-lap bike and run course which is designed to be a “within sight” course so no mater where your little ones are, they should be in view at all times.

Long Eaton Triathlon club is proud to support the event with marshal and officiating help as we have done over the past few years. Huge thanks go out to those who spend a few hours helping out, the event couldn’t go ahead without you.

Congratulations to Coach Cat, winning her age-group at the Outlaw full distance Tri !

Cat completed the Outlaw Triathlon this weekend and did it so well, she won her age-group. With a finishing time of 11 hours and 42 minutes, she also finished 9th female overall ! With a cracking swim time of 1 hour, 11 minutes, Cat battled the choppy waters of Holme Pierrepont to make it out onto the bike. the poor weather continued through the bike and Cat made it onto the run and still managed to keep smiling. Well done coach!
