Cleveland Steelman - Saturday 15th July 2017
A bit of a soggy start to this years Steelman but it didn't seem to dampen anyone spirits. As usual a big thank you to everyone who came and helped with the event, we have had lots of compliments about how great our marshals are and also thanks to Sandra Main for organizing everything.
We had quite a few club members taking part this year and a couple of teams, prize winners were Angela Ackerley 3rd Vet40, Carol Murray 2nd Vet50 and Dave Kirtons relay team was 3rd. Well done to everyone.
Here are the provisional results added 16-07-17

  Grand Prix - Latest results can be found HERE
It was looking as though the Main/ McLeod family were running away with the grand prix series this year with both Tony and Paige streaking ahead of their rivals (let’s hope that they can both do the same when they get to Canada).  However the recent results from Ripon have pushed Kay Stokes and Trish Bell ahead of Paige.  Trish is fresh from international success and doing OK at home too as seen by her impressive score in the series.
Danielle Colmer is also doing very well being in second place in the Juniors, and as she has only completed three events she may move into the lead later in the season.  Kath Blakey, Anne Robson and Ella Towers also deserve a mention for their efforts so far this year.
There is something about the 60-69 age group because we have Trish Bell leading the ladies and Tony Main with a higher score than any of the younger men in this club.  James Robson is in second place in this category with Doug Harris third.
Graeme Downs, Graham Currie and Alan Johnston are going well in their age groups with Graeme holding a narrow points lead.
We are into the busiest part of the season now with qualifying events every weekend and some midweek too.  We will be keeping our eye on the results and will update the table so that you can all see how you are doing.  If we miss any results then please drop us an e-mail with the details and we will put it in. updated 24-07-17

Stockton Duathlon Festival - 23rd April 2017
Stockton Riverside was host to the four duathlon's that took place on Sunday organized by TriHard, two of which were draft legal qualifying events for the World Duathlon Championships in Canada this summer. The weather could not have been better and with closed roads there were some super quick times recorded.
As far as I can see we didn't have anyone in the novice event.
In the Sprint - Non drafting, we had Sam Syson winning the male junior category and Danielle Colmer winning the female junior category.
In the Sprint - Draft legal, The ever spectacular Tricia Bell was 1st Vet60.
In the Standard - Draft legal, Kay Stokes was 1st Vet50 and Anne Robson was 2nd Vet50.
We had a number of athletes in the two main duathlon's who did outstanding performances against athletes from all over the country trying to qualify, well done everyone. Full results are on www.trihard.co.uk updated 25-04-17


Training Duathlon - 8th April 2017 - LATEST RESULTS ADULTS
The final(ish) duathlon until Autumn and what a glorious one, most people's times improved with the weather and there was some outstanding performances including James Wilson setting a new course record of 43:06. As always thank you to the marshals and helpers who stepped in at the last minute and also to Barbara for keeping us all fed and watered and her continued fundraising. At this particular duathlon we were raising money for the air ambulance that rescued Steven King after his accident at Ripon, thank you to everyone who donated prizes and bought raffle tickets. I don't have the exact amount we raised but everyone has been very generous. Steve also popped by to do a spot of marshalling with his crutches and he is looking remarkably well considering the amount of needlework he's sporting. Sandra Main will have a few prizes to give to people at swimming that weren't at the duathlon. We may also be running another duathlon in aid of the Air Ambulance, more details to follow.
The best improver trophy: We had some remarkable performances over the months but the trophies were given out as follows:
Best improved male - Peter Muir who has got consistently quicker, his slowest time was 00:59:57 and today his time was 00:48:14!
Best improved female - Lois Muir who went from 01:05:44 down to 00:57:25!
Best improved junior (who ran and cycled his little socks of for the trophy today) was Ben White who went from 00:54:28 to 00:52:44, excellent work considering his start time was so quick.
Click on the link above for the results, I did manage to get splits for everyone today, if anyone wan't their's e-mail through he information request button or message through Facebook. updated 08-04-17

  2017 Grand Prix - HERE
Click the link above for the current list of events for this year complete with the first results, and you can see that Jim and Anne Robson have stormed into the lead.  However there is a long way to go and as usual the final results will be based on your best five events throughout the season.  (UPDATE: the date of some events have now been updated, however we have been unable to find some 2017 dates and used the 2016 ones, if anyone becomes aware of them please can you drop us an e-mail)

The rules are the same as last year and are listed below on this website.  One clarification regarding our own events; as club members you should all be marshalling one of the three (Sprint, Short Course or Steelman) and therefore you cannot score points in all three.  If you have entered all three (we assume that you have arranged a substitute marshall) then we will pick the best two results for inclusion in the grand prix series.  This is just to be fair on those members who would have entered all three if it were not for the marshalling rule.
Happy racing!
  • Points are awarded on the basis of your finishing time with respect to the winning time both male and female. 
  • Most events will be scored out of 100, but ironman events will be scored out of 200, and super sprint races scored out of 90.  If there is more than one race at the same event then the long race will be scored out of 100 and the points available for the other races will be reduced.  A list of races and the points available can be found here.
  • The events in the grand prix series are intended to be local although we traditionally include Helvellyn and other events in the Lake District.  The ironman does not have to be local or even in the UK.  All we ask is that you enter as a member of Cleveland Triathlon Club and you provide details of the race and the results.
  • Other events will be considered for inclusion in the series but we would expect it to be local and sanctioned by Triathlon England.
  • Your best five results in the season count towards your final score.  The top three in each age group will qualify for prizes that are usually awarded at the AGM. 
  • To qualify for a prize you must have completed a minimum of three events. updated 31-03-17

Ripon Hornblower Duathlon – Sunday 26th March 2017
A brand new event by the Tri Hard team and by all accounts a beautifully scenic course. Kevin Mcloughlin was our first representative home finishing 3rd Vet50, we then had an outstanding performance from Ella Towers who not only won the Vet40 category but was 1st female overall! Tricia Bell reigned supreme in the Vet60 category and if they put the men in with the woman she still would have won, she was also 3rd overall lady, Kay Stokes was 1st Vet50; it was certainly a good day for the ladies but I have to mention Doug Harris picking up 4th Vet60 and just to top it all off Paige Mcleod was 1st lady junior. Now rather unusually for a duathlon one of our club members had an impromptu swim, unfortunately Steven King had rather a nasty mishap with a bridge and ended up in the water with his bike, from what I have heard there was fortunately a farmer to retrieve Steven (not sure about the bike) and Steve was air lifted to Leeds General, I have been told he is to be released tomorrow with various cuts and breaks, I can assure everyone he is still smiling and we wish him well on his recovery. added 27-03-17

Parents of Junior Triathletes
Kindly given to us from Durham Triathlon Club, it's a little game to help our juniors learn basic rules of triathlon and duathlon, adults may try it too! http://epoweredlearning.co.uk/trigame/story_html5.html added 04-03-17

  IMPORTANT: Club Membership
Now the membership is up and running can you all make sure you have renewed your membership, to continue to receive subsidized swimming sessions. Please also make sure that you have the correct e-mail address and phone number in case we need to contact you about pool closures etc.
It is a condition of membership within Cleveland Triathlon Club that ALL members marshal one of our events. Year after year it is the same people turning up to help, many of whom are not even club members. We would appreciate that once you have made your selection for the event you are willing to marshal you honor that commitment. Please be considerate to the event organisers who already have a hard enough job to do with out being let down at the last minute.
The cost of membership and entry fee's for events are kept low because of voluntary helpers, if we have to start paying for marshals the membership and event entry fees will increase.
