Whilst you could have run a Half Marathon in Basingstoke or just a 10k in Reading or Wimbledon in the last of the indian summer, the multi eventers had the choice of either the 7Oaks Aquathlon, or the quirky Rowers Revenge at Marlow.
Only two things - you had to be under 15 to do the Aquathlon, and the Rowers Revenge isn't a triathlon it's a Rowing Ergo with a bike ride and a run. Frankly you could do it in the gym - but that's not the point.


It's not a lifesize statue of Sir Steve Redgrave, it's half scale at 7ft high

Eyeballs out on the Ergo, save nothing for the bike

Never hurry in transition

Determined cycling off to Henley and back

Good running across the open field to the finish, past the supporters

Meanwhile at the Tonbridge School Sport Centre, the 7Oaks Aquathlon took place
The most listened to race briefing - ever

Good running into the finish

HSBC, Councillors and Mayors all helped to present medals and prizes to the winners in each age group

Kids can put down a high power to weight ratio into the finish
 
Determination across all the age groups and waves

A great set up and event organisation from the 7Oaks team at the welcoming finish
So -

Future Races
Next weekend is crazy busy again with the Herts 10k, Petts Wood 10k, the ETL Badger Half and The Givaudan Ashford 10k. Not to mention someone covering the Dusk2Dawn bike ride all night at Thetford.

Have a look at them - it might be the last dry/warm race before winter !!!

Meanwhile - if you see your pictures captioned with "archive flagged" after they have been right clicked - make sure you buy them quickly - I'm deleting them after a few days or so to reduce image theft, so please don't be dissapointed - buy your digital download - it's cheaper than two pints of beer and lasts considerably longer !

Finally - with all these events and high volume of new images coming online - the older ones have to be archived to make space for the new ones - so if the one you really wanted from April is still there, get it now before it's gone permanently! Don't miss out and then forget what you've achieved this year, get your action images now.

Until next time
Anthony
