CPT in action


Thames Turbo - 28 March

Unfortunately Storm Kate put paid to today's Thames Turbo Triathlon. All seven CPT members on the race matrix showed true commitment to the London League by turning up. Initially it was reduced to an Aquathon (with an extended 9k run planned) and then cancelled altogether as Bushy Park was closed due to the high winds, even though the first wave had started and some were already on the run by the time it was abandoned.

Kerri Valley Triathlon - 19 March

Haydn raced the Kerri Valley Triathlon on Saturday 19 March while visiting Lauren in Perth. It was a 1500m swim, 60k hilly bike and a 12k tough trail run. Haydn won his age group and was only just over ten minutes behind Lauren, who came second in her age group. Haydn says "it was a great race organised by a local club with an after event BBQ of course".
