this is a really nice club run event
but it could do with a few more entries

 so

any local folk

you know you want to, you can do it and be home before your family even know you left the house

Nothing like a bit of notice Lurks!

i don't think a sprint aquathlon is going to get people from round the country, i was just thinking of local folk

Sorry Lurker not around that weekend, if I were I'd probably spend as long on the swim and transition as I would on the run!! Hope it fills up a bit more

OMFG there's a Halesowen Tri Club?

Actually, I can't say as I'd gone looking for it, so I suppose I can't be too surprised that I didn't find it!

it's cobra running club - their full title is "cobra running and triathlon club"
but it seems to be a secret

Lurker this is actualy Halesowen Triathlon club not Cobra.

28/02/2010 at 17:40

yeah - that was pointed out to me today - i  thought they were the same, probably because a couple of the cobra folk were helping outlast year

aanyway

i did it, in almost exaclty the same time as last year, despite sitting down to put my shoes on and putting a long sleeved top on in transition, so i must have been a bit faster somewhere else
the weather was vile

but it's a nice event and i will try and drum up some more entrants on here for next year

Wow - I didn't even know about that.  I can't ride a bike so an aquathlon would be great for me

there are two or three in the midlands this time of year
01/03/2010 at 18:20

but i think they are all done - unless anyone else knows different
as it will be tri season soon

i think

Similar race at Burntwood this weekend, but could now be full, not sure. Really enjoyed the Halesowen race last week, despite the weather!

this has confused me since i did it
and i have finally got round to checking

this event was run by cobra in previous years - hence the confusion

there is also a halesowen athletics and cycling club - i met one of their members at the weekend
i am amazed anyone in halesowen has time to watch telly and eat chips

Hi Lurker,

 

There is still a Cobra Running and Triathlon Club but some of the members felt it was time to set up a club that focused just on Triathlon so they set up a separate club Halesowen Triathlon Club.

 

Halesowen Athletic club is a totally different entity catering for everyone from recreational fitness through to developing youngsters. Reading the local rags they have young athletes with a lot of promise in cycling, tennis etc.

 

I have no direct involvement other than as an end user but I believe most of the chip shops are still doing well despite the introduction of a new sports club in the area and neighbouring Lye have not reported any down turn in the Asian restaurants.
