Clandon Park Run 10k and 7Oaks Tri 2016 now live

Playing spot the winner at 7Oaks tri

Congratulations sportspeople on another great weekends running and tri-ing. Less than ideal conditions at Clandon Park with the rain made things tricky underfoot - but almost near perfect conditions (if a little chilly on the bike without the right tops on) made for some fast times and good racing at Sevenoaks.

Here, take some gels, you'll get a sugar rush and feel amazing for 10 minutes now you've finished.

On Saturday the Clandon Park run took part in quite a bit of rain, mud and waterlogged grassland - but by all accounts it was still good fun. The finish was a turn right after the railway underpass instead of a turn left - which isn't quite a scenic to be honest !

The small log jump still awaited in the woods

proper plane making

I'm Alive ! and other positive motivational statments

Although Spidey had run out of silk, he kept trying whilst running along.

only a bit muddy

It seemed quite nice at the start. If you're a duck.
