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...

Consistency Pays Off – by Thomas Switala

It started a year ago with a race to do the registration. Alarm set, I rushed from the client to my Nairobi hotel room with 5 minutes to spare to start of registration. It was apparently sold out within 13 minutes.  My entry secured and happy and now the training starts. I still had Moolooba 70.3 WC to look forward to but the idea of doing another full distance started forming the base for next year. The training from the Tissink Team...

Two 70.3’s in 2 weekends – by Kelly Stokes

When Natalie asked if I’d write a summary of the last 2 weeks of racing, I was happy to help but was unsure what to say. I’m an air traffic controller and have a very sporadic shift pattern. I have to bid for leave a year in advance so I always try to book weekends off and then end up fitting in races around whenever I end up being off. This is what lead, in part to me having 2 70.3 races in a week at the start of June. Saturday 10th...

A bucket-list event – Gareth Pile’s Challenge Roth experience

  Symphonic , calming gladiator music welcomed us into T1 2 hours before the start of what they say is the second best thing next to Kona and definitely the best event I have ever experienced …… Challenge Roth 2017. The goose bumps started immediately, and as we checked our bikes, nutrition and transition bags, slowly a massive chunk of the famous Roth crowds (250 000) started building and lining the bridge over the Danau canal....
