It seems to have been a year for tough conditions on the Ironman circuit and this years World Championships in Kona was no exception as the legendary winds gusted across the Queen K' Highway and the temperatures soared into the high 30s to deliver some of the toughest race conditions on the Big Island in recent years.
Once again it's one of our superstar ladies showing top form on the world stage as Kate Mapham races to a podium position at the ITU Duathlon World Championships in Nancy, France.
Kate had an outstanding race, but stormed home with the fastest final run time of all the ladies to take the bronze medal in her age group.
Congratulations on a very well deserved result!
We’re pleased to announce that we'll be holding a New Members Evening at Virgin Active Fulham Pools on Thursday 11th October at 8pm.
This is a great opportunity for all new members to come along to the club for the first time, meet the gang and get involved. We'll be covering who's who, training plans, socials, volunteering, racing, pretty much everything you need to know as a new member. We also hope to be able to give you an opportunity to order some club kit, and we'll be talking about the two training camps we're planning this year in sunny Spain.
Last weekend the club held the sixth Surrey Legs of Steel cyclosportif on Box Hill. The event was a major success raising lots of money for the Dave Aitchison SportsAid Fund. The ride kicked off at 8am, with a huge turnout of 500 riders heading off into the hills of Surrey to test their legs and gain that sought after Legs of Steel medal.
Congratulations to all who participated and thank you for your continuing support, and thanks again to the wonderful ful-on tri marshals who help make the day happen.
Ful-on Tri took on Challenge Henley on mass with 21 members racing in the half challenge event. It's always good to see lots of fellow team-mates on the course, but even better when the black, white & yellow is dominating the front end of the race. It was a very proud afternoon for the club as we walked away with no less than 8 of the trophies -
