Completed as a first timer in 2018


A true, fast and flat 5km

As the first event, this was a great race. Well organised, well marshalled and a great course for a PB. Extemely flat and run on roads and pavement with only a handful of areas where the surface was broken up. Would run again in this series.

A great season opening sprint Triathlon on a stunning course!

Oldbury White Horse Sprint Triathlon

I've marshalled the event in the past, this year was my first attempt as a competitior. After a great off season with training going to plan, Oldbury Tri was the perfect way to start the summer events. A sunny (hot) day, made for a great atmosphere at the race village. Everything was easy to find and the marshals were very helpful. The race breifing was clearly communicated and easy to find and despite being in one of the latest waves, everything was running perfectly to time, even down to the second. 

A 400m pool swim and a short run along the path to the first transistion area and we were off on the bikes. Taking in the stunning Cherhil downs, the oldbury white horse and the Lansdowne Monumnet on an out and back route, this has to be one of the most spectaclar bike courses in the region. Back to the leisure centre and the transition area before a very warm, fairly flat 5km run around the villages surrounding the town.

A great medal and quick results, followed by a selection of food and drink on offer made this a fantastic event and one that I would definately look to enter again next year - Highlighly reccomended!

My first duathalon

The DB Max Chilly Duathlon is a fantastic event and a great way to kick off the season. As my first duathalon I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the combination of the great organisation and the unique nature of racing on a race track makes this an awesome event and extremely quick - perfect for PB chasing!

As usual, DB Max did a great job with the organisation, the marshal support was fantastic and the comentator on the finish line was nice touch and a real motivational boost as we completed the event. This is sure to be an event that will feature again in my future plans!

Another Great Bowood Triathlon

Having done this Triathlon in 2016 it was always going to be in the diary for this year. Once again the event was fantastic. Great organisation, a stunning course around one of the most picturesque parts of Wiltshire and on traffic free roads. Everything ran very smoothly on the day, and even being in the final wave, the organisers were still running exactly to time. Marshal support was great and the weather was perfect. An event I hope to be back at in 2018 for the third consecutive year!
