National honours were awarded at the Owler Triathlon middle distance event last weekend, which had been chosen by the governing body for this year’s championships.
Tri Spirit Team’s escapades had an international flavour once again this month, as two team members travelled to Austria to take on one of the fastest Ironman courses in the world in Klagenfurt on July 2.
IMPORTANT – CHANGE OF SWIM VENUE FOR OWLER TRIATHLON – PLEASE READ
As you will know, we have been struggling with the water quality at Conningbrook Lake behind the Julie Rose Stadium for the entire summer so far. As a result, we have been working hard behind the scenes to try and secure an alternative lake for the event to ensure it will be a triathlon, not a duathlon.
The water at Conningbrook is still not clear of Blue Green Algae, so with the kind help of Brett Group, our main sponsor, we have finally secured an alternative lake this week and made the decision to move the swim to Jury’s Gap, Lydd, Kent, TN29 9JW. This is around a 20 minute drive from Ashford.
This means there are some changes to the event bike routes and camping. PLEASE READ THE UPDATE
