The last gallery to get online will make it up the broadband will be the East Grinstead Triathlon in the morning - its on the FTP overnight because Seb and Simon took waaay to many photos (which is technically not really a problem). I'll tweet it just as soon as we get them online - twitter @uksportphoto is the fastest way to know, then we update our facebook page, and then this blog.

The Deal Tri - Half Marathon

The latest news on The Deal Tri website about the Half Marathon is here: http://www.dealtri.co.uk/news/news-03-05-2012-14-12

Basically - it was a lot warmer and better than the weather last February when compacted ice and snow on one corner was just about manageable - but then it started snowing even more and you just couldn't tell where it was. As good a reason as any to cancel. Plus it was very cold and wouldn't have been that much fun !

This time with better weather (how lucky were we with the weekend and no rain!) the sun did shine on the course and Gareth Robb from Paddock Wood decided that a hilly 1:16:46.35 was a good idea to win. His Team mate Tina Oldershaw won the womens race in 1:24:04 which again was also good enough to be 10th overall.

Well done to Jo and Jill on reorganising the whole race and getting it all sorted again - and unlucky to everyone who entered that couldn't make the re-run - it looks like you missed a cracker of a run around the Kent countryside !

Good solid running around the hills of Kent






The Oxford Town and Gown 10k - organised by Muscular Dystrophy

With Christine Hamilton setting off both races and presenting the prizes, the Muscular Dystrophy Town and Gown 10k run went of with a massive 2361 entries completing the course. On a perfect day for a 10k the town went orange with the official Tshirts and lots of balloons and banners about the place.

Adeo Weliy won the race in 29:27 - in his first race in the UK since arriving from Ethiopia earlier in the week on a graded performance rating of 91.23 - which is international standard. Sophie Carter winning the ladies race in 37:11 - a respectable 30th place overall and an age grading of 81.94

Well done to everyone involved on the day - perfect weather for a race and a worthy winner with a fantastic time. Here's hoping you have all raised tons of money for Muscular Dystrophy !



Right it's 2:30am now and I'd better get some sleep ready to make East Grinstead Tri live first thing in the morning, well a bit later on once it's uploaded.

Until next time

Anthony
