3rd Place for Tamsyn (V35) at Buntingford 10

Congratulations to RedAlert athlete Tamsyn, who took a third place trophy for the Buntingford 10 despite having an injury which meant she had to ease of the gas for the last couple miles. Excellent work Tamsyn. Tamsyn didn’t realise she had got a trophy until after she had left the race, so a lovely surprise … Read more

Tamsyn takes a Podium at Herts 5 mile road race Championships

Hatfield 5  Whoop! An unexpected podium in the Herts Vets 35 championship – being very much a triathlete – I never expect running medals so totally chuffed with my third place. I entered this as a fun (and fast) local race to see how much top-end speed I had regained with a years training behind … Read more

Heidi runs Hertfordshire Half Marathon

Hertfordshire Half Marathon 2019, held in the beautiful scenery of Knebworth House, would be the setting for my second ever half marathon (it was also the setting for my first!).

Gareth runs Bristol Half and gets a shiney new half mara PB…

When I first met Gareth earlier this year, he was more than a little bit broken (he won’t mind me saying that). He was already a talented runner despite having many issues affecting his gait and biomechanics, and surprising that he is only in his second year of running. He has been working hard on … Read more

Kerry Conquers the Island!

This is only the second islander race and so from a competitors perspective there are a few improvements they can make. First being the buoys… Really hard to … Read more

Trish’s Outlaw 70.3 Post-Race Essay 😂(her words not mine)

What a difference a year makes…and a big mistake to teach me a valuable lesson 🙄 Staffs 70.3 last June, my first half IM, ended with me crossing the finish line in 8hr25m24s with severe stomach pains. I’d hung on like my life depended on it, and was overwhelmed when they placed my first IM … Read more

Stanborough Lakes Aquathlon Series, Race 1

It has been a year of injury and illness for me, with glandular fever, shingles, tonsillitis and a chest infection to name but a few of the illnesses I’ve had since September 2018. Blame it on the baby starting nursery so they say!   As off around February I was starting to feel my health was … Read more
