Be part of the Ironman Weymouth team!

Thursday, 23 June, 2016 - 13:02

Would you like to help make Ironman Weymouth an unforgettable experience?

We are pleased to announce that Just Racing are working with Ironman UK to put on this spectacular event and we need volunteers!

Ironman Weymouth will run in conjunction with Ironman 70.3 on 11th September and will bring
thousands of athletes to the South Coast for an ultimate test of endurance. 

A lot goes into putting on an event like this and it wouldn’t be possible without help from volunteers. There are many ways in which you can be part of this great experience. Volunteers are needed throughout race week, not just on race day, to help with event set-up, registration and more. There are many roles to be fulfilled during the race, including helping out on the swim, transition, bike course, run course and feed stations.

If you would like to help out then please send an email to alan@justracinguk.com. We will try to accommodate your preferences.

Roade Triathlon Competition - Our Winner is Announced!

Thursday, 23 June, 2016 - 12:53

Thank you for all your entries into the Roade Triathlon competition, we've had some great stories. Unfortunately there can be only one winner and after much deliberation, we have decided the winner is Mark Kleanthous. Here is his story:

“One Year at the Roade Triathlon I got some of my family members to also compete.
My nephew was a much faster swimmer and quick on the bike and run but I wanted to show him experience also counted. Despite having done hundreds of triathlons I recall practising my transitions in the weeks leading up to the event.

I am pleased to say I was first family member home and number #1 Uncle!!
 
I tried so hard to beat him I actually had a fast Roade triathlon performance, which is not normally my strength considering I mainly do ironman double and triple ironman events.
 
I still have the t-shirt and mug from the first event 15 years ago and the t-shirt still fits.”

Mark then went on to say:

“Having competed in more than 480 triathlons I now choose to compete in only the best and well organised multi-sport competitions such as Roade Triathlon.The team at Just racing welcome all ages and abilities at their events. Nothing is ever too much trouble. ”

Well done Mark! You have won yourself a retro Roade T-shirt and a USN goodie bag. However, we would also like to send a USN goodie bag to our two runners up, Charlie Stanton-Stock and Julia Hallam.

Roade Triathlon Competition - Julia Hallam's Story

Wednesday, 22 June, 2016 - 20:57

Another entry for the Terry Wootton Roade Triathlon Competition. Julia tells us her experience of taking part in a Just Racing event as a novice.

Unfortunately due to the the event not taking place last year I haven't had the opportunity yet to compete in the Roade triathlon as yet. However I have competed in Kimbolton and Duston, and have always found the just racing events to be so friendly and supportive.

This was especially the case for my first triathlon at Kimbolton when my friend and I both took part in our first tri a few years ago, and found everyone really helpful and supportive calming our pre race nerves, and we both made it to the finish line within a minute of each other to celebrate together.

I'm looking forward to the opportunity to race this year at the Roade triathlon.

Inspirational Story - Charlie Stanton-Stock Age 15

Monday, 20 June, 2016 - 21:01

As part of our Roade Triathlon competition we have been sent in the following inspiration story from Tabitha Stanton-Stock about her son Charlie.

I have a son aged 15 (Charlie), 2 years ago he was diagnosed with CMT (a degenerative neuromuscular disease affecting strength in his lower arms and legs) - he decided to take up Triathlon to try to get fitter and stronger and has since really enjoyed it, last year he competed in several youth triathlons, of course he usually comes in last by a fair bit but everyone has been really supportive and he is doing fantastically well. As a result, at the end of last year he was invited to train as a para-triathlete with the South Central Academy! One of the bonuses of this is that he now has a really smart GB Tri Suit to compete in.

Charlie was lining up at the first triathlon of the year, his friend was sitting a little way up from him as they were lined up in number order, the guy next to Charlie’s friend murmured "I bet the guy in the GB Tri-Suit wins" - Mael (said friend) just grinned and agreed with him. When Mael later told Charlie of this conversation Charlie immediately turned round and said "you should asked him to bet some money, we could have split the profit!" :) 

Here is a link to an article written by Charlie for a US teen magazine which gives more information on his condition and his triathlon achievements:

New to Triathlon? Maybe we can help!

Wednesday, 15 June, 2016 - 17:01

Every year more than 100 novice triathletes take part in Terry Wootton Roade Triathlon.

The 414m pool swim, 20k bike and 4.5k run are achievable distances for first timers of all abilities. Also, the fact it is at the end of the triathlon season means you can train throughout the summer, which let’s face it, is much nicer than training during the cold winter months and with the light mornings and evenings you are less restricted on the time of the day you can train and can fit it in around family life. On race day you can be sure that our approachable events team will be at hand to offer friendly advice if required to ease those race day jitters.

If you would like more information on what a triathlon involves and important things such as what equipment you might need to take part in one, then visit our New to triathlon page on our website. Also, everything you need to know about Roade triathlon can be found in the race information on our event page.

This sometimes challenging, but fun multi-terrain course takes you through the Jurassic landscape of Irchester country park.

Whatever the weather we can guarantee you will enjoy yourself enough to want to come back for round 2! You could even get friends and family involved and run as a team. There are 3 distances to choose from, 5km, 10km or 15km, so it is suitable for all abilities. Online entries will open soon! For more information on this event, click here.
