Ironman Maryland – Kelly Stokes

Wow, firstly what a fantastic race. It’s a non pro event but the whole community embraces it and makes all the athletes feel so welcome. Even the local school children make handmade cards for each of the competitors.  My partner Adam and I had been on holiday about a month before but with 3 weeks back in the UK before the race I hoped to get in a nice final block of training. However within 24 hours of landing I was covered in a...

Pieter Du Preez – Race report UCI Paracycling World Champs and Berlin Marathon  

It has been a fairly quiet racing year since the arrival of our son, Pietman end of April for obvious reasons. This also meant quite a lot of interesting new challenges and adaptions in our lives vs the usual rhythm for training. However, I think we came out adapting well in the end and not losing focus on what would be a very important Paracycling World Champs end of August as it was a first Paracycling World Champs hosted in SA. To...

Pula 70.3 2017 Race Report – by Thomas Shaw

I arrived in Pula on the Thursday before the race, the race was not really in my plan until a work commitment in Croatia was confirmed towards the end of July. I’d been training consistently since Durban and IMSA before that, but once the race was confirmed, the training program got stepped up. Training had been going really well up in the build up to Pula, FTP tests, 5k trials, and even the 1,500m swim wetsuit swims all indicated...

Race Report – Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote by Annah Watkinson

Coming off a podium finish at Ironman 70.3 Estonia, I was focused on replicating this at Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote this past weekend.   In Estonia, I had a somewhat lack luster swim and bike leg but was incredibly pleased with clocking the fastest run of the day against some top runners on the professional circuit. The run felt effortless. For the bike leg, there wasn’t the usual power and on reflection, partly due to limited...

Annah Watkinson Race Report July – August 2017 Races

Challenge Prague      Quote: “If you are going through hell…keep going”   I have never thought of changing my dual life of both a professional career woman in investment banking and a pro tri-athlete. Sometimes, it does get tough balancing two very demanding parts of my life, but trips to race  both in the Czech Republic and Estonia over the last 10 days makes it all worthwhile. I absolutely love doing what I am doing in...
