Cleveland Triathlon Club 2015 Grand Prix Series Roundup

On Sunday 22nd November after swimming we will have our annual general meeting which will include prize presentation for the grand prix series. This is a great opportunity for you to have your say in the running of the club and also to recognise those club members who have been doing so well during the year.

Tricia Bell had another great season beating most of the younger ladies in the events that she entered and scored more points than anyone. Tricia also won the 60-69 category with Sandra Main second. Kay Stokes won the 50-59 age group pushing Deborah Clift into second place with Louise Meynell third. Amazingly their final scores were only four hundredths of a point apart.

Angela Ackerley triumphed in the 40-49 age group with Carol Murray second, which is a reversal of last years 1-2. Viv Murphy came third. Deborah Green won the 20-39 age group followed by Sarah Vojvodic. Both Deborah and Sarah are new to triathlon and deserve congratulations for doing so well in their first year.

Paige McLeod was third lady overall which is pretty impressive for someone her age, and she won the junior category with Danielle Colmer in second place.

Graeme Downs had the highest score of all the men and also completed the most events. This second category is usually won by Peter Ball but this year Graeme did 13 to Peters 9. Graeme won the 40-49 age group closely followed by James Hague in second and Paul McGough third. Stephen Oysten won the 20-39 age group this year, followed by Michael Penketh and David Cole.

Joe Foley won the 50-59 category with Vincent Blake second and Chris Abell third. Tony Main had one of the highest overall scores which guaranteed him first place in the 60-69 age group.

The final standings for all members can be viewed by clicking the link above. Prizes will be awarded to the above mentioned athletes at the Annual General Meeting, and it would be great to see you all there.

Hartlepool Big Lime Triathlon - Sunday 20th September
Hartlepool also ran a triathlon on Sunday, a sprint distance starting with a swim in the Marina. We had several members taking part, Graham Currie was first home for Cleveland followed by Graeme Downs, then we had Bryan Tucker and Joe Foley finishing within a second of each other, followed by Scott Young, John Sharkey and Vincent Blake. As far as I can see we had no females unless the club name is missing in the results. Well done to all of you. added 22-09-15
  Teesdale Triathlon - Sunday 20th September 2015

Brutal Events Extreme Triathlons - 19th September 2015
The Brutal Extreme Triathlon's start with a swim in Lake Padarn, North Wales, the bike course goes through stunning scenery and over some challenging hills. And finally, the run takes in undulating trail before going up and down Wales highest mountain, Snowdon. This year Brutal events held a half, full, double and triple (which is still going!), Jeff Belt wisely went with the half and finished in a fantastic 4th overall (only just pipped for 2nd) and 1st V45, to warm up for this event Jeff also completed Helvellyn triathlon (which would be enough on it's own for most people!) on the 6th of September. Well done Jeff. added 21-09-15

Cleveland Relays Triathlon
Well done to all the teams that took part in yesterdays Relays triathlons; the serious contenders and those who were doing it "for fun!". Thank you as always to Richard and Linda Hatfield for organising the event and to all the marshals who gave up their time to come and make the event possible.
Here are the results. added 14-09-15


Triathlon Weekend at Newby Hall - report from Graeme Downs
Over the August bank holiday weekend there was a “Triathlon weekend” at Newby Hall.  There was a kids Tri (“The Triton” Triathlon), Olympic distance (“The Trident” Triathlon) and Middle Distance (“The Rubicon” Triathlon) events. 
They were quite big – 250 kids in “The Triton”; 150 adults in “The Trident” and 550 adults in “The Rubicon”.  Cleveland had a few representatives – Matthew and Danielle in the kids events – Matthew in Tri Stars 1 and Danielle in the youths.  I did the Trident and spotted Peter Ball was also in that one.  Paul Brown, Paul Green and Angela Ackerley did the Rubicon.  We all shouted each other along!
Unfortunately there was a problem with the kids cycle route and a last minute change caused a bit of confusion and Danielle was directed the wrong way and ultimately did not complete the correct course, despite her disappointment she still found time to show support for Matthew. Matthew himself who is still only 8 and competing in the 9-10 cat finished 6th male and 13th overall .
The adult events were well organized and supported and it was a great atmosphere.  Paul Brown finished very highly indeed (7th) – especially as there were a number of invited elite entrants to the event who had their own spacious “ITU style” transition zone.  No such luck for us mere mortals in the mass of the racking so Paul’s result was (again!) impressive. added 04-09-15

St Bede's Session - Adults and Juniors
Please note that we will not be using St Bede's for any further academy session, we are looking for another venue and will advertise dates ASAP. added 04-09-15

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


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.
