First Lady at Basildon Tri

Congratulations to Verna on her first triathlon win 🙂

A couple of triathlon events to report on:

Thursday 6th June was race 2 in the Hillingdon Aqualthon series – 1 km swim and 5km run. I had a decent run but a poor swim put me well down the field which was very competitive anyway with strong performances across all the age groups.

Saturday 8th June was Basildon Off Road Triathlon which was a 400m swim/10km off road bike and 5km off road run. This was a tough race today as heavy rain meant sections of the bike course were very muddy and slippy. Bright warm sunshine was the order of the day by the time racing got under way at 4pm. I had a good race and managed to finish 1st lady in 1:16.31. Overall position 14/67. My first ever tri win – well in female category anyhow. I raced in Hillingdon kit but donned VRUK vest for the podium.”
