For the first time in 22years the much coveted Windsor Triathlon was changed to a Duathlon this was on the advice of the environmental department due to the recent excessive rainfall and it’s effect upon the river Thames. The race organisers changed the format from a 1.5k swim to a 1k run and kept the 42k cycle and 10k run as scheduled. Despite this 1400 people still participated.
A total of 8 Chichester Westgate Triathlon Club (CWTC) members participated in the event. One the Saturday we all had to register and rack our bikes, most of us took this opportunity to stay overnight and sample the delights of Windsor town centre.
Unfortunately Mike Cooper and Mary Campbell arrived at their hotel only to be told that the hotel had double booked and their were no more rooms available, and had to be transferred to a hotel further afield.
Mike and Mary clearly didn’t let their accommodation worries affect them as they went on to have great races and win both their age groups. Well done to you two.
We all enjoyed what was a good flat cycle and a fairly flat run. The organisation was exceptional and despite not having the swim we had a thoroughly enjoyable day and would recommend this race in the future.
