Total Motion Aquathlon (London League Round 5)
A nine-strong team represented the club in round 5 of the Triathlon London Region Senior Series, held at the wonderful Tooting Bec Lido and hosted by Total Motion together with Clapham Chasers. Not quite your usual pool-based Aquathlon, given that the lido is 90 yards long with super-wide lanes, leading to some close head-on shaves throughout the 810m zig-zag swim! The 5k run was two laps around Tooting Bec Common, with plenty of surface variation to make it quite interesting. All in all, a very friendly and well-run event, with smiles all round (especially from Susan Fairfax who finished 2nd Female/1st AG, picking up a decent bag of prizes for her efforts). Honours also to Greg Lewis, Catriona Tuplin and Catherine Linney for winning their age groups. Full results here, and hopefully the league scores will be up soon here
Next round is at the Bridge Standard Open Water on 23rd June. As a reminder, just by entering with Crystal Palace Triathletes as your club will automatically enter you into the individual and club competitions.
