wasn't the only one who was wishing at 7am this morning that I could

Derwent Island Swim Results... The swim today could only be classed as wet, the grass was wet, the
air was wet, the lake was wet! those that took part in the swim were
probably drier than those that stood and watched. 172 hardy souls took
part in a revised 2 lap route which took you up to the island and along
the shore rather than right around it, due to the minimum water temperature
and cold weather. Thanks to all the marshals and kayakers and to Colin
Gardener and Sunpower Coffee for the hot drinks afterwards.
Swim and Triathlons... Our less hi tech thermometer registered 11.5degrees in Derwentwater
this afternoon. I have been in this afternoon and it was cold initially
but I soon got going. The swim will be going ahead but we are looking
to make it a two lap course in the bay between Crow Park and the island

return to shore after one lap. At this stage triathlon swim will be

Day in the Lakes... A great day in the end though perhaps
the race should be called a Lake in the Day given the quantity of showers
we had and there was perhaps more water on the run than there was on
the swim. Well done all who took part and many thanks to all the marshals
and sponsors who made the day possible. Provisional results are available .
Photos by available soon
Triathlon 2012 ....Regrettably this event has
had to be cancelled for 2012 because of the on-going major coastal defence
works and Seafront development scheme.All the works should
be completed early next year and 2013 should see the Redcar Sprint Triathlon
back on Redcar and Cleveland Council have been fantastically supportive
in this venture and have done everything possible to make the race happen
this year. However the situation on the seafront is too fluid to make
any effective planning possible. If you have already paid your entry
fee it will of course be refunded in full, alternatively you can transfer
your entry to either the Lakeland Standard Distance Tri on August 18th
2012 or carry your entry over to the 2013 Redcar Sprint tri.

sunshine today than the Lakes has seen in a few days, a bit late to
warm the water up much but the full distance race went ahead. Well Done
to all the competitors who took part, many thanks to the Marshals and
Sponsors who all endeavoured to make the race a fantasic experience
for you all. Here are the. Apologies to all in the short race,
due to an unintentional signage confusion between our run route and
the trail race route which took place immediately after ours a number
of runners in the early part of the field ended up taking the wrong
route back to the finish. Whilst we look into the impact this has had
on the overall placings and the fairest solution to this here are the
recorded finish times over the route you took in race number order. A further update to this will be placed here on Wednesday.
