Looking forward to enjoying some open water swims with everyone this year.


Eton Dorney Triathlon

Katie, Jasper, Emily and Elsie competed in the Eton Dorney Triathlon which was the final (and compulsory) event in the Junior South Central Regional Series. Katie was in her first year in this age group and finished in a fabulous 7th position out of 23! Jasper gained some valuable points for the series with a 12th place out of 27. In the Tristar 1 girls, Emily was 2nd girl and Elsie 3rd girl. Seeing our club colours on the podium with the Olympic Rings in the background was fabulous!

British Aquathlon Championships

Benjamin left his bike at home and travelled to the iconic Dorney Lake in Windsor for the British Aquathlon Championships. He had an amazing swim, coming out of the 750m swim in 6th place out of 69 competitors of all ages! He then went on to complete a 5km run. His finishing position resulted in him becoming the U20 Silver Medallist in the British Aquathlon Championships!

Chichester Triathlon

Another fantastic club presence at Chichester Triathlon and Aquathlon. Ollie (Aquathlon), Megan and Rosie (Triathlon) represented the club for the very first time at a mainland event and gave it their all. Fabulous efforts also from Rafferty, Alex, Katie, Jasper, Emily and Elsie in the triathlon. Emily came 1st in Tristar 1 girls and Elsie came 3rd! All of them showed fantastic support for each other around the course.

Bowood House Triathlon 25th/26th June

One of our favourite events to travel to, and a South Central Regional Series event. We had an excellent turn out and the club was represented in Tristar 1, Tristar 2, Tristar 3, sprint distance and the British Triathlon Super Series Aquathlon! Well done to Elsie, Emily, Jasper, Annabelle, Katie, Rafferty, Martin, Benjamin, Gethin, Lottie-Rose and coach Mark. We had three podiums; Emily 1st place girl in Tristar 1, 1st U17 for Benjamin in the sprint and 1st U20 for Gethin in the sprint. This is a challenging event with a tough lake swim, a long hill climb out of the swim, a headwind on the cycle and a hilly run and everyone gave it 100% and continued to support their club mates once they had finished racing.

Eastbourne Aquathlon

Martin put his sea swimming training into practice and travelled to Eastbourne Aquathlon. He put in some brilliant efforts in both the sea swim and the run.

Billingshurst Duathlon

The day after Chapel Aquathlon, Martin caught a 6am ferry to compete in Billingshurst Duathlon. It was a hot race but he finished on the podium in a brilliant 3rd place in the Tristar 3 boy category. Well done Martin!

Chapel Aquathlon

We had several members travel over to Hamble Sports Centre for the Chapel Aquathlon, another South Central Series event. And for once it was an afternoon start so we didn’t need to get a ridiculously early ferry! Well done to Benjamin, Martin, Katie, Alex, Phoebe, Jasper, Elsie and Freddie. Elsie came away with 2nd place girl in Tristar 1 and the support all of our members showed for each other was fantastic.

Eton Sprint Triathlon

Lottie-Rose and Benjamin took part in this competitive event at Dorney Lake. Lottie achieved a nearly 3 minute PB on the course from the previous year and Ben a whopping 7 minute PB! Amazingly, both of them have qualified to represent GB Under 20 age group in the European Sprint Triathlon Championships in 2023. Congratulations to them both!

Oldbury Triathlon

The second event in the South Central series saw Martin, Katie, Jasper, Elsie and Emily travelling to Wiltshire for the Oldbury White Horse Children’s Triathlon. This was a pool swim with a cycle and run on grass. Each of them showed some brilliant skills and once again Emily came away with 2nd place girl in Tristar 1.
