Sunday was up and out of the house before 5am to get to the White Oak Tri at Swanley before 6am. It was an early start to a lovely warm day, the sun just rising in the north east with a glow of red as it broke at about 4.30am. A text from a close friend at 7am "are you at the Newhaven Tri today ?" Damn and blast - with my Tardis broken I'm at White Oak for the rest of the morning. On the other hand it was good to see many well known and familiar faces on the Run course - Eg Tri, 7Oaks, Tuff Fitty to name but three clubs with regulars out and about who all had a bit of a wave and banter with as they ran past. Dave was out on the Bike course at Button lane, using his 300mm to turn the background into blurr and really focus in on the riders.
Two different but similar triathlons they are - Newhaven being a open water swim, whilst White Oak is pool based, they are both over similar distances and appeal to a good mix of starters and experienced triathletes. Ken and Mike were covering Newhaven with Ken at the main base area and Mike out on the cycle course over near Lewes Rugby Club.
I've put a selection of images from the races below to give you a flavour - trip over to the results (white oak results here) to see your friends race numbers and then have a look at them on the gallery. If you really like them you can even post photo links for them onto facebook so everyone can find see them...(see the new social sharing links on the image preview page)
Over at Newhaven it looked a little like this - with a bit of rain thrown in for good measure as things went on through the morning. Some nice views along the river bank by the look of things - all in all quite a scenic race !
It was a late one back here with the F1 and world cup all on the TV in the background whilst the image search indexing was done. After 21hrs I had the White Oaks Gallery online, so that was bedtime and then we managed to get Newhaven online this morning.
This week it's just me in the office (Triss who helps out on a few mornings is on holiday) preparing the images for orders, replying to emails, doing the admin, sorting out new events pages writing the blogs and planning the next weekends shoots, as well as my cardiologists appointment tomorrow, so please bear with me whilst I get through the work - I promise I haven't forgotten about you !
see you about soon, perhaps the RPAC Summer 10k on Wednesday evening in Reigate ? http://www.rpac.org.uk/index.php?p=summer10k with Free race photo downloads !
