  Grand Prix Latest Results - Here added 28-07-15  
British Triathlon Championships 26th July 2015
We have unconfirmed reports that Tricia Bell has gone and done it again and won another gold medal at the British Triathlon Championships in her age group for the standard distance event at Liverpool Triathlon. Tricia you are amazing and everyone at Cleveland Triathlon Club is very proud of you! added 27-07-15


Redcar Triathlon - 26th July 2015
This years Redcar Triathlon was based at 'Tuned In' so had a different swim and run course, the bike was pretty much the same with laps along the seafront, this change in base made it better for spectators to view the event from many points as the run was also laps, you could actually walk along the beach parallel to the swimmers and see what was going on. With 20 plus Cleveland Triathlon Club members out you will have to forgive me for not naming you all, Paul Brown won the event in 01:07:07, Paige Mcleod was 1st Female Junior in 01:28:50, Angela Ackerley was 2nd Vet40 in 01:23:52, Kay Stokes was 1st Vet50 and Martin White was 1st Vet60 in 01:33:00. Top 5's were Diane Jobson Vet40 and Mark Young Vet40. Well done to everyone who took part, especially the first timers and the first time sea swimmer, it looked a very tough swim! added 27-07-15

  Haven Point Triathlon - 5th July 2015
Kath Blakey was our sole representative at Haven Point triathlon, formally Hebburn triathlon at South Shields. Her first race of the season due to injury Kath managed an impressive 3rd overall and 1st Vet50. Well done Kath. added 22-07-15


Grand prix 2015
The grand prix series is really starting to take shape now and many of you have already completed five qualifying events.  James Hague is still leading the mens 40-49 age group closely followed by Graeme Downs.  Peter Ball is in third place but this is likely to change as there are several people close behind.  Tony Main leads the 60-69 category and looks uncatchable, but it is much closer in the 20-29 category where David Cole leads Steve Oysten.  Mick Vickers is in first place in the 50-59 age group followed by Chris Abel and Vincent Blake.
Tricia Bell has the biggest score of all the ladies and she is in the 60-69 age group.  Sandra Main is in second place in this category which is impressive as she is also organising events and running the club.  Deborah Clift leads the 50-59 category with Louise Meynell second and Kay Stokes third.  In the 40-49 age group Carol Murray is first with Angela Ackerley second, and in the 20-39 age group Deborah Green leads Bibi Rodgers.  The leading junior is still Paige McLeod with Danielle Colmer second.
The top three in each age group will be announced and prizes awarded at our AGM at the end of the season.  The rules of the grand prix competition can be found on the website.  The scores so far can be seen here.  There are several qualifying events left so plenty of opportunities for you to improve your standing in the series. added 22-07-15

Gold Rush
I am please to announce that Cleveland Triathlon Club Ladies Kay Stokes and Tricia Bell both won GOLD medals at the European Duathlon Championships in Madrid. I've heard it was horrific conditions and it was unsure if the races would actually go ahead. It was probably just normal training weather for our ladies. Well done, you have done us all proud. added 27-04-15

Open Water Swim Training
From Tuesday 5th May open water swimming will begin at Bishopton Lake, Stockton on Tees. We meet between 5:30pm and 7:30pm, the last swim time is 6:45pm.

Do not attempt to swim alone. added 23-04-15


Grand prix - The Rules!
There are a lot of new members in the club who may not know about our grand prix series, and as we have tweaked the rules a bit then we thought it best to clarify matters:

  1. Points are awarded on the basis of your finishing time with respect to the winning time both male and female. 
  2. Points scored in ironman events are doubled.  This is in recognition of the huge time and energy commitment that this requires, and the fact that this makes it much more difficult to fit in “normal” events.   The ironman does not have to be local or even in the UK.  All we ask is that you enter as a member of Cleveland Triathlon Club and you provide details of the race and the results.
  3. Your best five results in the season count towards your final score.  The top three in each age group will qualify for prizes that are usually awarded at the AGM. 
  4. To qualify for a prize you must have completed a minimum of three events.

 If you are entering (or have entered) a local event that is not currently listed on the grand prix schedule and you want it to be included then please drop us an e-mail for consideration. added 30-04-14

  IMPORTANT: Club Membership
Now the membership is up and running can you all make sure you have renewed your membership, to continue to receive subsidized swimming sessions. Please also make sure that you have the correct e-mail address and phone number in case we need to contact you about pool closures etc.
It is a condition of membership within Cleveland Triathlon Club that ALL members marshal one of our events. Year after year it is the same people turning up to help, many of whom are not even club members. We would appreciate that once you have made your selection for the event you are willing to marshal you honor that commitment. Please be considerate to the event organisers who already have a hard enough job to do with out being let down at the last minute.
The cost of membership and entry fee's for events are kept low because of voluntary helpers, if we have to start paying for marshals the membership and event entry fees will increase.
