Aquathlon Results

Another Club Race and another very wet day!  We aren’t having much look with the weather on the events recently – but people keep turning up!!  6 turned up for the race to brave the cold and wet weather – well it was our Brass Monkey Aquathlon – so there was a clue in the title.  It lived up to its name – it was wet and then got wetter when we got out the pool!

A 500m swim, followed by a 5km run – nothing like a good blast on a winters day to get you going!    Definitely an event we’ll have again – as its nice and easy to organise!  Swim – jump out the pool – 5km out and back run out towards Newton Kyme – high fiving people along the way – back for a mince pie and a hot drink!  Sorted!

Didn’t get split times but the overall results are:

1st Glenn Armstrong 27:45

2nd Rob Spavin 30:48

3rd Warren Allison 30:50

4th Linda Harris 34:50

5th Lynne Hargrave 34:53

6th Ian Spencer 38.45


Well done everyone who took part – I know the date clashed with a lot of other things going on – I’m sure we’ll have more out next time….

Next events on the calendar are the Brass Monkey Half Marathon and the Club Winter Duathlon at the end of January….watch this space…


(Apologies for the image of people running in their speedos – that ones just for Ian!)

Tadcaster Triathlon Team invite you to join them for their newest race in the calendar.  The Brass Monkey Aquathlon.  Can you brave the Cold?  Swim 500m in the heated pool then out into the cold for a 5km Run?   When you are finished come along and join us afterwards for a coffee and a mince pie and find out more about T3 and some of the exciting things we have planned for 2016.


Hill Climb Results

Rob Spavin takes victory in the T3 Hill Climb.  In horrendous conditions 6 T3 members set out from Tadcaster for Black Hill for the first ever T3 Hill Climb Challenge.  What a climb it was!  With a river running down the road at the start and sections of the climb at 20% – this wasn’t the easiest of climbs.  There was no hanging around at the bottom – everyone soon got into a rhythm and went to the max on the climb.  It hurts and then it hurts some more – Jo Derry was off like a whippet but it was Rob who triumphed on the day – the Ironman in Wales this year probably made this hill look like a bump in the road….  Well done for everyone who took part – results will be added to the Winter Series soon….
