Weekend results - 21 August

The only person racing, according to the race matrix, was Gary who did the Redhill Sprint Triathlon.

Please make sure you add your races to the matrix so I can report your results!


parkrun results - 20 August

Crystal Palace celebrated it's 300th parkrun by running the course in reverse, so we started at the finish and finished at the start! Most of us preferred running in this direction as psychologically finishing on a downhill made us feel as though we'd run faster, even if our times didn't actually confirm this!

Sky - Tour De Ford ride report

Kati, Glyn and Selwyn did the Sky Tour de Ford starting in Crayford on Saturday morning.

It was supposed to be a post IM recovery ride but Glyn suggested we go in the fast group due to Palace’s 3pm kick off!  We managed to hang on/at times lead the group around the 90km undulating course with the aid of three Sky support vehicles, pre/post ride smoothie and flap jacks.

It was a fun, well organised event, getting a taster of being a Sky pro for the day (just somewhat slower) with loads of freebies and great goody bag.

Watch out for future Ford Sky rides.

Weekend results - 13-14 August

Not quite as many medals as Team GB over the weekend but still a pretty good haul for CPT!

On Saturday evening, Rob, Kevin, Peter raced the Midnight Man Half, which was this year's Club Championship middle distance race. Rob was 2nd overall and Kev was 3rd MV. I was the only female in the Midnight Man Half Aquabike, with a PB, knocking two minutes off last year's time. There were three ladies on the start list but they didn't turn up! Graeme opted for the shorter Midnight Man Half, where he was 1st MV.

On Sunday, Alex competed in the Elite Tri Liverpool, where he was 7th overall and 2nd Junior.

Congratulations to Graeme who was 2nd M45-49 at the Owler Standard Distance Triathlon.

The weather was perfect for this year's Ride 100 and CPT were well represented, both from ballot places and thanks to Matt and Bloodwise. Those with early starts sailed through with some impressive ride times, making the most of the closed roads. Unfortunately there were a number of serious crashes which held up the later riders, some more than others, with the last starters having to do a slightly shortened route. Luckily no-one from CPT was hurt but Haydn came a cropper when he was cut-up and hit a 6-inch kerb, catapaulting him off his bike and damaging his wheel.He walked two miles to a railway station, visited Evans for a new wheel then rode down the Mall to collect his bag and earned himself a finish time!
