June Strider of the Month

Jen Willingham  - for her amazing Half Ironman performance on 17th June in the lake district. I know Jen worked very hard on all three disciplines in the months leading up to the race and to not only complete her first half ironman triathlon but to do it in 5:55:42 was an amazing achievement. Her run leg alone was ran in 1:43:00 which is some going considering she'd just swam 1.2m and cycled 56miles! In fact she overtook 60 of her competitors on the run leg and was 8th overall in her age category!  I'm sure Jen would play it down but to get a sub 6hr half triathlon at the first attempt, really is some achievement.
Club Championship 2018

The next races are The Even Splits 5k on 15th August (race full) followed by the Vale of York half and Kirkstall Abbey 7m in September.

A number of races later in the year are now open for entries
