Results, weekend races & Happy Birthday Dick!


Firstly, a big happy birthday to Dick Welch today. Dick, we wish you a fantastic day.

I’ve managed to dig up some results of Bombers that took part in the recent 94.7 Cycle Challenge on Sunday 21st Movember (apologies if I’ve missed anyone). Seems like runners can cycle (and they also greet runners while cycling). Well done to everyone, particularly Gareth on that 2:32 time!!

This coming weekend is the big “RAC Easy One” race that we have all been training for. By now, it is too late to cram in any more training, so rest up so that you are fresh on Sunday. If you are not racing and would like to help out, I know that your help would be greatly appreciated at the water tables – the Early Worms are at the 17km mark and Jamie is at the 20km mark – help out! Please send me your results on Monday!!

The triathletes (& Wannabees) are heading out to Pretoria on Sunday for the Gauteng North and Africa Champs – starting at 07h00. Note that you can register for the race on Sunday morning, if you get there before 06h00 (that means you do not have to register on Saturday afternoon – thanks to Albie). Here is the race day schedule.

Remember the Kids triathlon on Saturday at St Stithian’s College, starting at 08h00 – time to get out for a cycle beforehand (I’ll be taking out the Beast for a ride).

Roan has circulated a nice checklist of what to have in your race bags for 70.3. You can check it out here!

Have a great weekend racing!!
