There was success for KIT at the inaugural Bradley Stoke Triathlon with one club member on the podium.
Gary Stretton came 3rd overall, Neil kerfoot was 6th overall and 2nd vet and Michelle Kerfoot was 14th overall
and 1st woman home.
Neil says "A really good event on closed roads. Bike was a bit short of 20k but run was a little longer than 5k
according to my Garmin and the cheeky hill right at the end of the run was a complete fascist
Well done Gary - just could not stay with you on the bike once you had caught me up!!"
Also taking part in the event were Greg Wentland and Jake Hallett - well done to all KiT members.
Well the Cotswold Classic was my first Tri of
the year and seeing as we are in August that’s not great. Without going
in to detail I have had a lot on this year and have had to pull out of most of
my races. I managed to defer my 113 entry to the Cotswold Classic.
The plan was to train really hard and have a pop at my pb of 4 hours 51
minutes. The problem with planning is you have to actually do the
training you planned to do. I had done some but not nearly enough.
The 52 miles was the longest I had ridden since Ironman Copenhagen
exactly a year ago. Although I have been doing some long runs I haven't
done a brick session since that Ironman either. The only thing that had
been going well was my swim training and I was confident of doing a low 30
So if I could get somewhere between 5 hours and 5:15 I would be happy. Read the full report here.
