Rob who gets all the marshals together, Rach, James and Dave Lash as the section heads. The list is endless but thank you all. There were entrants with taking part on the day. Can I get feedback from you guys on what would you change? Hope you all got a Mid Sussex mug and zip buddy if not let me know. I also have a large amount of car window stickes that I will be passing on to Sharron so let me know if you want one.

I will be at the Dolphin with a box of mugs on thursday night. Have you beat or set one of these records let me know. We have all been getting used to competing in poor weather and this day was true to form. There was a massive storm the night before with nearly an inch of rain, so the bike course was covered in debris and a strategically placed fire engine! Luckily the swim was meant to be wet. The day started with registration. Most people commented that it was a joy having Kay and Pippa in charge as it became a stress free zone.

Sam and Alex were also on hand in various places including cheerfully encouraging everyone. Dave Lashbrook left it particularly late and was the very last athlete to register, although he was in plenty of time. The swim had many of us racing in the same lanes simultaneously and most people gave way to the faster swimmers sorry Dave.

Phil was sure he had done 2 extra lengths but as it was he was the club's second fastest swimmer only Neil 'the fish' Giles was faster. It is clear from the times that all the swim training and coaching is paying off.

Martin Shoesmith's impressive 9. Ant Grey and Loz counted lengths before they raced, but no-one paid them enough get away with fewer lengths. As the ground outside the pool was so rough it was permitted to leave clothing and shoes outside.

Steve Crocker took it a stage further by rapidly donning a pair of slippers before racing up the hill. However in a post-race interview he admitted they were handmade Italian leather shoes with special soles for grip, which enabled a super quick run into transition. The bike course is well known to be challenging for a sprint course.

The damp conditions reduced visibility with glasses steaming up, whilst also making the ground slippery. There was gravel everywhere just to add to the challenge.

Charlie Langhorne recorded a remarkable Colin Chambers slowed down to admire the fire engine on the fastest section of the course and still managed to be a few seconds faster than Steve A, who in turn was delighted to be a few seconds faster than Rob. Phil Couch was racing up behind Steve Mac, and was preparing a suitable witty remark as he passed, when his chain came off, and it took him till well into the run to catch up again. By this time his 'wit ability' had long since left him and he could only manage a grimace.

Following his problems with an errant horse at East Grinstead he has not been enjoying the bike legs lately. By contrast Ant Grey's new bike has been a great investment - nothing significant has fallen off - yet! In Balcombe many of our athletes were cheered on by Mat Record as he happened to be out walking as we all passed through. This did not help Julie, when she punctured in the village and had to start the long walk home before eventually being picked up by the broom wagon.

Transition is always interesting. Although Jim was doing the 'other' race, he caused great amusement by spending seemingly several minutes putting on extra articles of clothing and reportedly putting gel in his hair! Dave Lashbrook completely forgot to put any trainers on at all and was called back by the referee to dress properly. Lucy Williams managed to get out of T2 having lost both her numbers and Loz struggled through transitions largely due to being affected by the wet and cold which clearly slowed him down.

The run was a real challenge compared to a dry day. There was a long slog up the soggy hill, followed by tricky corners on thick mud. Grip was a real issue and the course was also about m longer than previous years. Getting elastic bands became tricky as sometimes there wasn't one available at just the right moment. The 'bandsmen' sorted it all out though and everyone did the correct number of laps, although David Ricketts made hard work of it by dropping the bands every time! Claire Cresswell even managed to give the marshals a version of the 'Cresswell Wiggle'.

The nicest thing about the run was being cheered on by Pippa, Kay and Jim on most of the laps - that and finishing! A special mention must go to Helen Graham doing her first triathlon.

She was cold, wet and miserable and cheerfully shouted 'never again' as she completed each run lap. But she carried on and finished well, and I am sure she will be racing again soon.

One final note! Congratulations to both of you. What a fantastic achievement!! This is a FREE local event organised by local people!

I've no idea who they are except they're called Kimi and Kurt! Kurt wears an Ironman tshirt. Its all 'organised' over Facebook but the details are rather vague except for kick off at 7pm on Madeira Drive, meet up abut 6pm.

Just before 6pm I was on facebook at home telling some people who had come down from London where the start probably was According to my friend who did it last year 10 people took part but this time there were between 50 and Transition is some poles taped up to some metal barriers beside Madeira Drive. Its all a bit chaotic but everyone is very enthusiastic. And its FREE! I get there early and set up and then spot Steve Mac who is waiting for Kay..

I go for a quick jog to warm up. When I get back Kay is there with 5 mins to go before the start. Race briefing and Kurt explains the routes. Swim is diagonally out to a buoy and then straight out to a 2nd one and then parallel to the beach and straight back in. So that's decided and thats what we're doing! So over the pebbles to the sea.. I've taken my run shoes to leave by the start flags haha take that you dastardly pebbles. In for a quick acclimatisation and its a lot colder than Ardingly!

I'm really glad I have 2 caps on. Lots of bubble blowing with my head under water, until it freezes and then its out and 20 secs later we're off! There's actually not too much bumping, probably because its just about impossible to see the buoys when you are at sea level and there are a few heads and arms in front obscuring the view, so everyone goes off in what they think is the general direction and head out in a fan.

I generally follow the pack hoping they are better at sighting than me. Its been quite choppy on the way out and I've had a few mouthfuls of delightfully salty water! The waves and current should be with us on the way back. Its does seem much faster going back but I end up reaching the beach early and have to swim along the shore to the flags. So even though the swim was shortened from the original m I reckon I easily swam that anyway.

Run shoes on and I walk up the beach pulling the westsuit top down and then jog the last bit. Steve and Kay start after everyone else and head in the general direction of the pier, get bored or lost and head back! And onto the bike - not your usual left turn at every junction with this route. Highlights include :. Luckily I've cycled in Brighton for many years so aren't too phased by most of this.

Unfortunately Kay hasn't and despite Steve's valiant attempt to get Kay to draft him round the course she decides its too dangerous. Personally I think being that close to Steves arse would make anyone stop. So now its full speed ahead for Steve as he attempts to track me down from a long way back!

I actually manage to overtake a few people on the bike and not too many pass me. I take one guy near the end of the 2nd lap and he then drafts me in so I'm determined to beat him on the run , which is helped by him telling me he is crap at running!

Onto the run , a flat 5km on Madeira Drive , 2 laps I get into a rhythm and get away from Mr Crap Runner, unfortunately it turns out I'm not that much better at running than him and he catches me up , so we have a chat and run together. Rounding the 'No' another guy passes us and I'm feeling ok so I go with him.. I manage to stay about 20 yards back but its enough to break Mr Crap.

Steve's finally off the bike and passes me going the other way making various gestures suggesting he's got me in his sights! On the second lap I try to catch the faster guy but he's drawing away I do catch the Tango man who seems to have entered the triathlon.. And across the finish and a medal! And there's a goody bag left on my bike! And its all FREE! The swim for this event will be in the pool at Weald School Leisure Centre, Billingshurst, with the lapped cycle and lapped run sections on the sports field next to the pool, all traffic free.
