Cornish Triathlon Series

351

This year saw the first running of the Cornish Triathlon series.  This has been an amalgamation of several of the existing races and has seen the addition of some new races.  Running the whole season as a competitive series has been a great idea and has bought Cornwall's Triathlons to a similar level as the long standing Road Racing GP.  The 2013 season is already under discussion and hopefully a lot of this year's problems with timing and organisation will be ironed out.  Additional races have also been mooted for next year so take a motivational look at your contemporaries’ results below, decide who you want to beat and get that winter training in.

The 10 races making the 2012 series were:

Location Type Date
Penzance Pool, Sprint 8th April
Liskeard Pool, Sprint 13th May
Marazion OW, Standard and Middle 20th May
Helston Pool, Sprint 27th May
Falmouth OW, Sprint 17th June
Stithians OW, Standard 22nd July
Perranporth OW, Standard 2nd September
Bodmin Pool, Sprint 9th September
Newquay OW, Standard 30 September
Wadebridge Pool, Sprint 7th October

Tri-Logic put in an excellent showing in the series with a total of 6 female and 13 male entrants taking part in anything from 1 to 9 out of the 10 races.  Seven of our members qualified for a series position by completing 6 or more races.  Those members that made the 6 qualifies races were well rewarded for their efforts with age group podium positions for 5 of them.

Male Results
Name Open Pos'n Age Pos'n Age group Races
Dave Pell 4 2 40-49 7
Darrin Porter 5 3= 40-49 9
Mark King 17 1 50-59 6
Barry Jackson 26 3 50-59 7
Barry Drew 148 3 60+ 4

Other entrants with less than the qualifying 6 events were Will Hutchins, Viv Bray, Justin Day, Phil Knuckey, Jason Beever, Dave Cracknell, Chris Hammick and John Mitchell.  Looks like the 40-49 age group has some serious competition (not much hope for me when I move up for the 2013 season)

Female Results
Name Open Pos'n Age Pos'n Age group Races
Jackie Swift 7 3 50-59 6
Michaela Holly 10 4 40-49 6
Kathryn Osborn 13 6 50-59 6

Sarah Hirons, Ali Galloway and Carol Penberthy also entered series races.
