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 -
The Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas is a truly brutal race, with a hilly bike course and over 9kms of climbing on the run. On a sizzling hot day which caused many of the worlds finest athletes to melt in the heat, our finest Ful-on triathletes braved the brutal conditions to deliver some close racing and inspirational performances.

Parys Edwards continued her domination this season by adding the English Championships to her ever growing collection of titles. Whilst still recovering from illness Parys managed to win her age group by 6 minutes, and finish 3rd female overall.
An amazing performance, and I'm sure all of us (except the competition) look forward to seeing Parys back to full fitness soon.
