TESE senior series club standings July 2018

Congratulations to the twelve 7oaks tri club members who entered the Swanley sprint race on 10th June which was the 3rd round of the Triathlon England South East senior inter club competition. There was a delay in getting the correct standings because it was difficult to see which club each competitor belonged to from the results.

It was the first round where we had 3 or more people entered, so we opened our account in the overall standings in spectacular fashion by winning the female, second in the male and winning the combined competition!

CANCELLED Brands Hatch Q10/26 6/7/2017

There are roadworks and temp lights on the route in West Kingsdown.

It is possible that they may be gone by this evening. It seems fairer to give everyone half a day notice rather than risking having to cancel on the night and everyone having a wasted journey.

Tonbridge triathlon results

It was a beautiful sunny bank holiday Monday morning for 13 7oaks tri club members competing in the Tonbridge sprint and standard triathlons. Thank you to the supporters who came down to cheer us on. Sam Bennett's intensive training over the winter in preparation for the Austrian Ironman has obviously payed dividends! Superb performances also from Cath finishing 1st female (again!), Georgie showing huge improvement finishing 6th female, Gabi & Grace finishing their first standard. Well done to Jenny finishing 3rd female overall and winning her age group in the sprint race!

7oaks triathlon 2018 results

It just about stayed dry for 337 competitors who took part in our 2018 7oaks triathon on Sunday 29th April - if a little chilly! DBmax and the first marshals were on site at 4am setting up in the dark, ready for the first swimmers to set off at 6:30. We and the leisure centre were inundated with enquiries the day before when seven fire engines were on site to deal with a fire in the electrical supply control cabinet.

7Oaks Triathlon to go ahead as planned

Great news! After the fire brigade were called to the leisure center today, we have now had confirmation that the 7Oaks Triathlon 2018 will be able to go ahead as planned.

2017 club cycling Time Trial competition final standings

The women's competition couldn't have been closer. Susan Freeburn's winning ride in the 4 up at Brands put her level with Val Place on 58. The tie breaker is the number of times the rider has scored points for 7OaksTri. Val has 4 more scoring rides this year so is the winner. With Susan second and Claire Edwards 3rd on 55.

Neil Harris won the mens competition scoring a perfect 60 from 7 rides. Sam Begg was second with 58. He also had perfect scores. Except for the occasions when Neil showed up! Chris Hansen was 3rd on 57 points.
