Victoria Roberts

This weekend saw a lot of action for the Total Tri ladies with a number racing the ladies only Deva Divas in Chester.

Julie Cullen who achieved a 2nd place in her age group in 1:43:06, 4mins faster than last year and a huge improvement on run time by nearly 2mins.  Sue Clements also had a good race but found getting snarled up in the swim and the cycle a bit frustrating she still managed to run a 5km 1min quicker than she has ever done before and came over the line in 1:43:44 to place 7th in her age group and again 4mins faster than last year so great work Sue. Louise Smith also raced at Diva in 1:35:35 placing 11th in age group, she said she had a cracking day and shaved 9 minutes off last years’ time! Kelly Gordon has only been with us a few weeks showed that she has learned an awful lot in that time, and some natural talent helps! She finished 14th Overall at the all-female Deva Divas race on Sunday and 4th in her AG. A very promising result and well-rounded performance. Read More

Chris Standidge, Tom Williams, Phil Murphy and Alex Ward

First up and certainly worthy of its own race write up (cough cough Tom W!) was the all new Ironman 70.3 in Edinburgh a little over a week ago. On a course that already didn’t need to be made any harder the athletes had to deal with cold conditions early in the day and a very strong wind that saw the swim get shortened to 950m and the bike leg made very hard with the last 25 miles directly in to a fierce headwind. None of this stopped some great performances with Chris Standidge and Tom Williams going 1st and 3rd in the 35-39 AG and Chris once again in the mix with the pro men along with a brilliant 12th AG position for Alex Ward.
