Ironman, ultras, trail races, social rides, birthdays! It’s all been happening. See the gallery for a few pictures.
It is with regret that we have to cancel our Open Water Triathlon at Manley Mere on 8th August.
After ongoing discussions with Cheshire West Council it has become too difficult to put this event on.
Cheshire West are seeing a significant rise in covid cases and the stipulations to run this event are too restrictive.
We have yet to obtain a new date from Manley Mere for 2022, but will email this to you as soon as it has been confirmed. Your place will be deferred until next year or a refund can be obtained if the new date is not suitable.
The cycle route for the Manley Mere Tri can be viewed here:
No tris this week but Janet, Belinda and Paul all did well in the Wilmslow summer 10K and Amjad and company rode a hilly 20 miler. A few pictures in the Gallery.
Despite really awful conditions, both Neale and Rob completed Ironman Bolton – a truly awesome performance. Well done to both of you.
Meanwhile, Simon won his age category and picked up a really nice souvenir cycle top at Windermere sprint Triathlon.
How would you fancy riding from London to Stockport? A bit far maybe? Janet thought it would be a good idea. 322km with nearly 3300m of elevation.
If you don’t fancy that, how about riding from Stockport to Llandudno? How about turning around and riding back? Well, that’s what John did: close to 350km and 2000m of elevation.
So impressive: makes a day of the Tour de France look a bit tame.
This week’s star is Alex for completing the Lakesman full distance despite a puncture and going a few miles extra on the bike.
Also competing up in the Lakes were Rob and Amanda.
David raced in the Sprint Duathlon at Mallory Park.
Samantha and Amjad aced the Ultimate Tri in Shropshire.
Paul and Mike were at Cholmondley, competing in the middle and standard distances respectively.
Scott, Martin, Eve and Ian were at Nottingham for the Outlaw 70.3.
WELL DONE to everyone!
A bit short of pictures in the Gallery this week but if you want any added, put them on the members’ facebook page.
A few event for Sockport Tri’ers this week:
Paul A and Paul F took part in the Great North Swim over a distance of 2 miles.
Paul G did the swim and bike leg of the Chester Middle Distance.
Gillian, Laura and Mike all raced at the Openswim Aquathon at Sale Water Park, cheered on by three home grown marshals.
As usual, some pictures are in the Gallery.
As well as our own Open Water Aquathon, Club members were busy competing at; the A J Bell Leeds Triathlon, Dunham Massey duathlon, Tallington Lakes Triathlon, Oulton Park Duathlon and Lakeland Trails marathon. (And probably some others!)
As usual, there are some pictures in the Gallery. Those I’ve missed will be on the facebook members’ page.
