Graham Whyte is having a great season so far!
First up was St. Neots Standard Distance Triathlon back in May. This was a qualifying race for the ITU World Championships and Graham got 4th in his age group securing him a place at the World's later this year on the Gold Coast.
Graham followed this up a a week later with 3rd in his age group at the Eton Sprint Triathlon which was also an ITU qualifier. Graham's result secured him a place at the Sprint World Championships also on the Gold Coast.
Two weeks on and Graham set a new 25 mile TT PB in a phenomenal time of 57 minutes 56 seconds at the National 25 mile TT Championships in Forfar.
Another week later, taking us up to today's date, Graham put in another great performance to take 3rd in age group at the British Standard Triathlon Championships down in Leeds.
Nice one Graham. Keep up the hard work and we look forward to hearing how the rest of your season goes.
We've been having a run of great weather in the North of Scotland recently and June 2nd was no exception for the annual Race the Train event. As well as getting a pretty cool trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway you also get to race it from Boat of Garten to Aviemore along the beautiful Speyside Way.
Nicola, Matthew, George (see if you can spot him in the photo), Laura, Myra, Eileen and Jen all took up the challenge. Well done all, looks like it was a great day! The photographer commented on Myra's top banter... good to see we've got a sense of humour about us even when racing!

Julie and Malky went a little further afield for their recent race and travelled all the way to Orlando! Greeted by torrential rain they were lulled into a false sense of what race day might be like which turned out to be a scorcher! What's more is the waters they swim in for the triathlon have the potential for alligators!!!
After their recent success at a more local super sprint in Turiff earlier in the season where Julie got 1st female super vet and Malky got 2nd male super vet, both went on to do even better here. Julie was 1st female overall in the Duathlon and Malky won his age group in the triathlon.
Well done both, great results!
A scorching day greeted the 2018 Glen Affric Duathlon that is held in what can only be described as one of the hidden gems of the Scottish Highlands. 8 members of the Inverness Triathlon club (including 2 teams of 3) joined nearly 150 people in taking on a 7.5 mile hill climb reaching 1800ft, a 17 mile cycle on forest trails that included one climb of 1.6 mile at 7% average gradient and a final "wee" 2.5 mile run around the nearby loch shore.
There were great performances by all with the stand out results a first Vet Female for Susan Richardson in a time of 3.12.33 and new member Brian Thursby Pelham coming home 6th in a time of 2.31.07.
The teams performed really well with the Inverness Tri Lads taking second as Darren Shearer (2.39.08), Mark Georgeson (2.46.19) and Angus MacDonald (2.53.02) combined and the Inverness Tri Ladies coming in 7th as Susan teamed up with Elaine Leiper (3.32.16) and Laura Wright (3.43.32).
And finally the legend that is George Reid came home in 04.10.44 despite a puncture and a slight injury on the second run. All in all a fantastic event in an amazing location surrounded by 7 munroes and in cracking weather. A huge thank you to our very own Matt Jones who organises the event and all the local volunteers from Cannich who get involved.
