  • BRT rule at the evening tri …………… (1st Aug, 2019)

    with Dan Marshman leading the field it was a great night for the contingement from Bexhill Runners and Triathletes , Francis Burnham took top spot in the ladies , also racing for BRT . The lake was choppy but the variety of places we can enter /exit meant that it was a sheltered shoreline swim to the turning bouy then a dash back across the lake with a tailwind to the exit .The bike was a challenge out to the turn at jurys Gap but coming back was fast . The run was the straight up dengemarsh to the turn and back to a welcome finish line .Well done to Ashley Newbery on his first-ever Triathlon .

    Next and last race in the evening series is Weds 14th August – reg opens 5.30pm – race starts at 6.45 .

  • WE’RE BACK AT LYDD FOR THE EVENING SPRINTS !!!! (9th Jul, 2019)

    Yes – this WEDS 10th we are holding our popular evening sprint tri (500m/21k/5.2k) at OUR NEW VENUE – HERONS PARK LEISURE – its just 400mts further up Dengemarsh road  , I will put extra signs there , we park bankside on the lake  , transistion is bankside and just 20mts from the road , our bike course will be as usual down to Camber (turn at Pontins rbt) and back , the run will be exactly the same “around the block” , we have very nice WC facilities and a small shop at the campsite where you can get a pre-race tea/coffee and snacks – sensible prices .

    The lake is a bit smaller but very clean , being another ex-gravel pit works , it will host all of our future events including the Super Sprint Team relays on Sept 29th and next years Marshman (June 7th)

     

    Hope to see you there !
