The Bewl 15

A warm sunny day greeted competitors for both events in East Sussex on Sunday.  The well established and popular Bewl 15 organised by Albert of Wadhurst Runners and Nice-Work provided a challenging 15 mile route around Bewl Water in hot conditions. Many first timers make the mistake of thinking it's a flat run around the reservoir, however the inlets and descent to the water from the start make for hills and rises aplenty as you go around. The last two hills away from the water in the last mile are a particular challenge to save a bit back for, and then the cake at the end tastes all the better !


No Endorsement - a new brand?

Far too much smiling up the last hill

Geoff looked on dissaprovingly at the blatant rival club promotion

The route goes around Bewl water, just the one lap...

Hat ? my hat ! oh bumpers !

The view back across the water as the race develops
Very well done to the Wadhurst Runners marshals, bike marshals, water stations, sign-putter outers, and the competitors on a great day out, and great administration from Nice Work making for a smooth event all round. Can you book the weather again for next year ?


The Sussex Triathlon
The inaugural Sussex Triathlon organised by Team Lifestyle was set in the grounds of Ashburnham Place, providing a lake swim, challenging (very challenging) bike course on the roads round Battle topped off with a run in the Ashburnham grounds over sprint or standard distances. Based on some observations this will soon become one of the most challenging triathlons about, and as open water mass start races go - it's going to be one to add to the Triathlon Race Checklist.
Remember - not too tight

A good crowd for the start of the sprint tri
Fast turns around the bike course

Tough climbs

Ladies winner gets a lean on

Bike Helmets are no use without the strap done up - DQ anyone ?

Dragonflies out on the run course were a certain distraction

So, well done to everyone at Team Lifestyle for another new great event in the calendar, and another warning to all the competitors who enter their races - they are always a challenge !

Next races
Wednesday evening is the popular Brooks Round Hill Romp, part of the West Sussex Fun Run League (WSFRL) organised by Steyning AC taking in the slopes of Chanctonbury Ring and some of the South Downs Way, there's also a mini-romp for the juniors too.

On Saturday another new event for the race calendar, a challenging off road 10k with plenty of hills, The Hurt, brought to you by the team from allabouttriathlons set in the picturesque woodlands of the Greensand Ridge of The Surrey Hills. It's going to be up and down and very pretty, so nice for a gentle training run.

Sunday it's the Captial to Coast Cycle Challenge (including Hove-to-Hove loop) and the Raw Energy Pursuits Worthing Triathlon (with free downloads), so get those last minute entries in if you can soon !


until next time,
Anthony
