Many club members have taken part in this aquathlon over the years. It includes one of the most memorable and longest transitions by the usually very speedy John Lynch as he carefully dried between his toes before the run. The pool swim is 400m - 12 x 33.3m lengths and set as a time-trial with everyone going off at 15s intervals. The run, one of my favourites, is through Morden Park - a mix of trail and grass. Fast downhills and gradual uphills which feel comfortable after the challenges of Hampstead Heath. The cakes at the end are always fantastic! This race is part of the London Triathlon League and a fantastic introduction to multi-sport. Members who are keen to take part in triathlon or any of its component sports are welcome to join the Mornington Chasers Triathlon page on Facebook. -Andrea
Suitable for all levels and with Summer League and SAL in mind the focus is on 'racing and pacing'. Warm up run to RP track with run and balance drills and work on standing starts and strong finishes.
