Some top results this weekend from the Endurancelife Coastal Trail Run in South Devon.
First of all, an amazing win for Parys Edwards in the 10km race. Not only did she win the women's race, but beat all the men too!
In the half marathon, Emma Partridge claimed third place and Bruce Berkeley won the vets.
Also, a special mention to Daniel Harris for battling the rain and wind to complete the gruelling ultra-marathon.
A good squad for the penultimate race of the season in Reigate with a solid 7th place result. Unfortunately not quite enough to drag us up from the bottom of the league but all to play for in the last race of the season on 11th February.

Have you started planning your events for 2012 yet?
Ful-On Tri runs two events each year one of which is a perfect start of season race on April 14th 2012.
Whether you’re an experienced competitor, looking to sharpen those race skills and test the legs after winter training or new to multisport and looking for a challenge, the ful-on duathlon offers terrific racing, traffic-free roads, and a friendly atmosphere. And we really want ful-on tri triathletes to dominate at our own event!
I took part in the adidas TERREX Coast to Coast race over the August Bank holiday weekend. It’s a four day multi-sport stage race across some of the most spectacular mountain country of northern England and a great race for anyone looking for something a bit different. It begins in Whitehaven with a 12km sea kayak to St Bees, the traditional starting point of the walker’s coast to coast route.
One weekend in mid June, six of the finest Ful-On triathletes who never won anything* descended on the small German town of Regensburg to 'do Ironman'. Reasons for doing it were diverse, with several of us being first timers, and for my part at least, there was a healthy dose of "it seemed like a good idea at the time", mixed with a bit of alcohol and some peer pressure!
