Windsor, yet again

Many of you will have heard this tale before, but in the spirit of encouraging others to write reports of their tris, runs etc here we go again. Windsor tri is my my favourite/annual and indeed my first Olympic tri many years ago, as far back as 2003. I had good swim...

Ironman Austria – Gemma

Wow!!! What an epic day! I’m writing this at 6am (the morning after) stuffing Pringles in my face like I’ve never eaten before.. having gone to bed at 1am! I think the adrenaline might still be doing its thing. *edited – I fell asleep and had to finish this...

Weirwood Wild Swim – Alison & Pete

This was arranged without my permission. Alison knows all about my “Weirwood Nose”. It troubles me during the hayfever season and makes my life (and hers) miserable for days afterwards. But she went ahead and booked it anyway. A 4.5km swim around the lake,...

Cat Page – Seahorse swim

Yesterday I completed the 3.8k Seahorse Swim at Studland Bay in Dorset. Studland Bay is a Marine Conservation Zone due to the declining numbers of seahorses that are there!  The beach is owned by the National Trust and it’s just beautiful there.  The swim is...

Cotswolds 113

I spent a fab weekend in the Cotswolds 8/9 June with a crazy bunch of ladies known as ‘Twinkles’ to take part in the Cotswolds 113 middle distance tri in a relay team. #teamtwinkle is a women only FB page that has brought together 100’s of women with a common...

Race report from Pete the Bike

This is my first report for a very long time. Going back just a few years, it seems I was writing reports almost weekly.  In fact I remember 2011, completing 27 events, most of which were reported but life, as they say has a habit of getting in the way. I had always...

Sussex Tri, Ashburnham Place – Alison

OK so having missed one event which I had already paid for due to illness. I was not going to miss another.  So despite very little bike training and a dodgy calf I thought I would give it a go.  Even if I could not manage the run.  I knew that it would not be...

Windsor, yet again

Windsor was my first Olympic tri back in 2003 ! and I have done it most year’s since then. I entered again at the end of last year out of habit. As some of you know, this has now been a good year for me to say the least. After doing the Melbourne Muffin Man in...

Oz calling: The Melbourne Muffin Man

Oz productions is proud to run Melbourne Man again in 2017 as part of the global programme of Saltman events, complementing ‘Winter Grit’ in the UK. Having seen off competition from Ironman Melbourne, which only lasted 2 years, this is now Melbourne’s premier event...

Winter Grit

It was that time of year again and time for Saltdean’s Premier Shortest Day Triathlon.   As with the previous two iterations, it was being run in conjunction with “OZman” – the Melbourne equivalent longest day triathlon. The day dawned cold and...
