Weekend results - 24-25 June + some late results

Two late results, as they weren't on the race matrix from the SLSC aquathlon at Tooting Bec, Race 1 on Saturday 31 May and Race 2 on 14 June, which was won by Mike Dowds.

On Sunday 25 June, results from the Windrush Aquathlon, with lots of podium places for CPT, the Llandudno Sea Sprint Triathlon, and the Leeds Castle Triathlon.

HansAlso not on the race matrix, the Race to the King ultra marathon, with the following report from Hans Geberbauer.

I blame Chris Hall.  And the Facebook algorithm that led to me being pursued by ads for the Race to the King ultra marathon until I had no choice but to sign up.  

I hadn't done anything longer than 25km runs since last September in training but I knew the first half of this 86km race along the South Downs Way from Slindon near Arundel to Winchester well enough from running the South Downs Marathon twice a few years back.  And how much harder than Ironman Wales could this be?  After all, there'd be no swim or bike, and the marathon there also packs nearly 500m in elevation gain.  

I reckoned I should aim for a 12 hour time and booked a bus from the finish back to the start accordingly.  On race morning, it was drizzly with a stiff breeze from west by southwest - I was glad the heat of the previous week had broken.  I knew the toughest part in terms of terrain would be the mid-section, with some very steep climbs and downhills.  Mindful of my IM Wales experiences, I set off determined to hold back, and dutifully walked up all but the gentlest gradients, and started taking gels early and often.  This saw me through the first marathon at just under 4hrs 35mins (apparently nearly in the top 10% of the field).  

Trouble arose from an unexpected source: my right leg started to feel unsteady and I soon found that I was unable to run for extended periods on downhills or flat terrain - this was not something I had ever experienced before).  Clearly, I had taken all too full advantage of gravity on early descents (something I practice in training).  Running uphill posed no problem but I was unable to take advantage of the more benign terrain in the last third of the race, taking 7 hours for the second marathon!  

Hans at the Race to the King Ultra Marathon 2017This looks like a disaster, and it didn't feel great being overtaken by lots of runners but I was able to mentally adjust.  As the leg trouble arose, I calculated that 6km/hr for the second half would suffice to finish under 12 hours - and catch that bus!  I also quickly noticed that a walk-shuffle approach was fast enough to allow for 10mins breaks at the pit stops and still stay on track.  

I never felt despondent and just plodded on, and it worked, until I finally shuffled into Winchester to finish right in front of the glorious cathedral, in daylight - and just in time for the shuttle back to the start.  All in all, an enjoyable way to while away a Saturday!

On Sunday 18 June, Matt and Hannah won the Bridge Triathlon overall and CPT took a number of other podium places (although it looks as though StuWeb has some tidying up to do of the results, so please let me know if anything is wrong). This was the Standard distance Club Championship race and you can see who the Club Champions are. Noel and Cat also took 1st places on the podium at the Bridge Sprint, Jeremy was 3rd at the Bridge Standard Aquabike while Phil took on the Staffordshire 70.3.
