Loved it! Hilly & good fun. There was some confusion about swim times but I had no issues in the pool at all. Sadly my chip (and a few others i spoke to) didn't work for some reason and I'm still waiting for my results.

Thanks for reviewing the race! Sorry to hear that you're still waiting for your results - I'll look into that right away for you.
I have only ever done one sprint triathlon before and it was so long ago that I had forgotten what they are like. So an early start and I'm half way to Haslemere and I have forgotten my bike helmet! Panic, turn around, back to Guildford to get it. I have gone from being nice and early, to being on the verge of late. I got there racked up my bike and just dumped my bag by it.
I evenually made it into the pool and did my swim which was very well organised.
For my transition to the bike, I may as well have taken a hair dryer, deodorant and hair gel, the amount of time it took me. Something to work on for the next one. After the nice, not too hilly bile ride, I managed to get my trainers on reasonably quickly, and started running well, until I got to the first hill. It went up, then it went up some more and carried on in the same way until the 2.5km marker. I love running but after a swim and a ride, this was brutal.
The bike and running courses were really well marked out with yellow arrows, and support near the finish area was great. Getting my finish time on a slip of paper printout at the end was great. No waiting around for email results.
My final time was 1hour 42 mins, way down the pecking order, but I reckon I could save 6 mins in transition by being a bit more organised. I definitey recommend this triathlon. It is set in lovely surroundings and the roads were nice and quiet for the bike section
See you again next year Haslemere.
