Club Championships

The Club Championships are a ‘race within a race’, so as well as competing for overall race position, you are also racing your fellow club mates, with the top three men and top three women of the club receiving a trophy at the club awards night (1st places also being immortalised on club shields).

Club Championships eligibility is restricted to members only, and club kit must be worn for Sprint, Standard, Middle. Aquathlon and Duathlon distances, and during at least one leg of an Ironman/long distance event (any version of the kit is acceptable). Members will also have needed to elect the club as their first claim club for the race, where possible (exclusions apply at the final decision of the committee, for example when competing at international level).

2024 Club Championships:

Middle Distance – Challenge Wales (Fishguard)

CPT members were out in force to represent the club at Challenge Wales with 13 members taking on the 70.3 course in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. The third club GP fixture of the summer and club championship race in the middle distance category. Joseph Yee was the first club member across the line in 4:29:43 (3rd place in the senior age group) followed by Jamal Dayes (6th place age group). Susan Fairfax was the first woman to bring it home (2nd place age group). Solid performances across the board on a particularly challenging run course!

Joseph, Susan and Jamal claimed age group spots for next year’s Championship race; Challenge Samorin, Slovakia.

Honorable mentions to ex-member Martin Leat (2nd place Age Group) and CPT Friend Phoebe Cooper (6th place Age Group) who also qualified for the Championship race in 2025.

It was a wonderful weekend travelling across Pembrokeshire en masse. A post race BBQ and a few bottles of Fizz were shared by all on Sunday evening before the long trip home on Monday morning.

GP leaderboard

To inject a little interest across the season we’re developing a GP leaderboard with scores based on members’ age-group positions for each event. This is experimental and a bit of a fun – using age group positions will hopefully keep it inclusive as well as competitive across the club.

After the latest fixture the top 22 looks like this – but still two more fixtures to go!
