The whole team from juniors to seniors has been out there smashing it again this weekend!
The weekend started with a number of the team entering the Aberavon Aquathlon. Coach Alan Kerr was there to show everyone how it’s done by taking 2nd in his age group.
Next it was the turn of junior team member, Ronan Adams. Ronan was taking part in the TriStars Welsh Championships series, in Pembroke. He came 11th, which now puts him at 7th place in the overall series.
Sunday also saw a number of the team compete at the Sospan Sizzler middle distance, with club member Natasha Barton winning 1st senior female and Simon Osborne taking 2nd in his age category.
A few of our members were also seen taking part in the Gower Cycle and demonstrating the importance of hydration;-) Jonathan Cosson also competed in his first Sprint Tri, at Parc Bryn Bach.
There’re too many names to mention, but well done to everyone in Team Pencoed who competed this weekend.
Great to see so many Club Members enjoying the bank holiday sunshine. Lots of great training being done, from Tenby IM reccies to Bwlch climbs in beautiful sunshine and not forgetting mad 24hr swim challenges by Tom and Lewis. A few brave folks even braved the sea for their first dip of the year.
Still not sure how Jan managed to find a Parkrun in a quarry.
Despite the cold weather, it’s been a busy weekend for Pencoed Triathlon club members.
Junior member Ronan Adams took part in the 2019 Welsh Stillwater Surf Life Saving Championship. He came 6th in the 50m fin race in 32.52 seconds, 2nd in the Manikin Carry and 3rd in the 50m Board Race. He also helped his Sker lifeguards team win 2nd place in the Medley Relay with Alex Ballantyne, Cai Williams, and Finley Canon. Well done Ronan keep up the hard work.
Club member Mark Hester completed a very cold and slippery Worms Head 10k, while Caroline Rees made sure she wrapped up warm to complete the Winter Warmer 10k in a new personal best time.
