Going long distance

Thanks to Jenny for allowing club members to get a bit of an insight into her decision to Go Long (read below). Well done Jenny for a great achievement of completing Ironman Austria and what I'm sure will be the first of many Ironman or similar long distance events.

The Barrathon

The Barrathon is a very special event. It takes place every year on the first weekend of July, usually one week before the Harris Half for those of you that might be interested in a cycling between them. It’s one of those wonderful community organised events and it feels like the whole of Barra gets involved!

Charity Glencoe Challenge action

Kate Fletcher and a team of nursing friends took part in the Great Glencoe Challenge last weekend in aid of Support in Mind Scotland.
The event takes you on 26.2 mile route through some of the most dramatic landscapes that Scotland has to offer and finishes up at the foot of Ben Nevis.
The team did excellently finishing in under 11 hours on a very hot day in the mountains. If you'd like to donate there's still time on Kate's fundraising page.

Huntly Sprint & novice races

Three of our local athletes in action at Huntly Sprint and Novice races this year.
Malcolm and Julie Cleghorn were both in action in the novice race with both taking 2nd place in their respective male and female super vet categories. Stirling effort again from the Cleghorn duo!
Dave Reid was also in fine form in the sprint race taking an excellent 7th overall and 1st in the super vet category. Another excellent result setting Dave up for a fine overall result in the overall Aberdeenshire series races.
Race results can be found here. Well done all!

Monikie Scottish Sprint Triathlon Champs

Three local athletes in action at the Scottish Sprint Triathlon Champs in Monikie. Graham Whyte, Luke Williams & Dave Roberts.
Both Graham and Luke took their respective age group titles, with Graham finishing in 1.13.54 & Luke in a swift 1.04.51 to take 4th overall. A lot of hard work paying off for these two local athletes.
Not phased by all the carbon on show at the Scottish Championships Dave was competing in his 1st open water Triathlon and finished in 1.19.16 which put him 72nd overall & 12th vet. He summed it up as a great learning experience, so hopefully the first of many more!
Well done all excellent efforts all around. Check out the full results here.

Laura, Nigel, Andrew and Stephanie went over to take part in the Glen Moray Sportive on another blue sky day... we've certainly been spoilt this summer it seems!
The route is approximately 120km winding its way from Elgin through the Cairngorms to Grantown then back towards Forres before completing the loop by heading back towards Elgin again. Laura was the 2nd female overall in the event.
Well done everyone!

The Highland Cross

I'd heard that the Highland Cross is quite hard to get into but it seems like everyone from the club was doing it this year. I'll have to learn the secret handshake so I can secure an entry in a future event!
