Tetrathlon

Welcome to the Tetrathlon Section

 On September 30th we are holding our own Biathlon & Triathlon. The schedule is here —> SH&RH PC Tri Schedule

3 more of our younger members & their rather cheeky chestnut ponies took part in the Ledbury Tetrathlon held on the 14th & 15th May. For Amelia this was her very first tet & WOW what a start & a very impressive swim of 74m in 2 minutes!!! Go Amelia! The result of 8th girl overall was fantastic. Jess was in the placing’s after her shoot, and as well as this also had a super run and a personal best in the swim with a massive 11m more distance than before, only narrowly missing out on being placed this time.Abs was also placed after the shoot and the swim and finished on the Sunday with a nice clear round earning 5th girl over all.The support the girls gave each other ,mostly in the form of VERY loud cheering was brilliant.
 
Since January this year, we have had a total of 15 members competing in Triathlons and Tetrathlons, with 8 of these members competing in the discipline for the very first time.  The interest has been so great that in March, we had 2 Tiddler teams and 2 Tadpole teams competing.
 
Members have represented the club in 3 Area 10 Triathlons at Monmouth, 2 Beaufort Tetrathlons,  Cotswold Triathlon and the Area 9 Postal Shoot, from these competitions our teams have been placed 8 times, our members have brought home a grand total of 15 rosettes for individual placings, 2 of our younger members Amelia & Honor have won medals at the Cotswold Triathlon and in addition to this Evie has qualified for the PC Winter Triathlon Finals. 
 
We have had a brilliant start to 2016!
 
We are now looking to take entries for the Ledbury & The Elms Tetrathlons taking place on the 14th & 15th May & 5th June respectively.

 

Beaufort Tetrathlon took place on the 9th & 10th April, we sent 2 SH RH members Jess & Abi who competed in the Tadpole class.  For Jess this was her very first tetrathlon and she had 2 personal bests in the swim and the run, with an exceptionally determined ride around a full cross country course.

 Abi had a fantastic ride and was one of only 8 competitors to make it around the course with a clear round.  Abi was placed 7th girl individually.

Our girls were in a mixed team with Llangeinor & Berkeley PC’s and were placed 1st!

Tet report from our super duper reporter Abi Agami…

We went to the Cotswold biathlon& triathlon today (3\4\16) .  Three members went but sadly we were down on one as Maisie had hurt her ankle.

Amelia the birthday girl was first individually & won a medal for best run
Honor was second individually & won a medal for best bean bag throwing.
Both Amelia and Honor should have won medals for chasing me to the finish line and cheering loudly.
 
I was the only tadpole from SH RH & had a pb in the swim

Interest in Triathlon & Tetrathlon is gaining at a fantastic rate!! At the final Area 10 Triathlon on the 20.3.16, we had 2 Tiddler teams – a total of 7 members and a further 5 members taking part in the Tadpole class. Not only that we brought home a mountain of rosettes.

Harry, Ruby & Jess were competing for the very 1st time and put everything into the competition.

The Tiddler Girls team, of Maisie (3rd girl over all!!) Fifi, Amelia & Honor – All 4 girls had their highest running score of the series and were placed 4th team.

The Tiddler Boys team, of John, Jay & Harry (6th boy overall!) worked really hard and had some great runs and were placed 5th team.

For the Tadpoles, it was a terrible shame that Ruby M was unwell ( we do hope that you are feeling better now, as we missed your very fast running legs) and Abi and Rosie made up a joint team with 2 Berkeley South and were placed 5th team with Ab being 5th girl over all.

Ruby J, Amelie & Jess made up our 2nd team, Ruby not only had the best shoot & swim of the SH &RH members but she was also placed 6th girl overall. Amelie had a personal best in her swim & Jess had the best run for our members.

Roll on the next competition!

The first of the Area 10 Triathlon / Biathlon series took place on Sunday the 17th January, a rather wet and cold day!!

 

Competing for the very first time in the Tiddlers biathlon, were Maisie Goodwin, Fifi Preston, Amelia Jones & Honor Watts.  A fantastic effort was made by all girls in both the bean bag shoot and the run and I am very pleased to say that they were 5th team overall.

We had 3 Tadpole girls competing, Ruby Meredith, Rosie Greenhill & Ab Agami, who all achieved personal bests in their swims.

Evie Lawson, moved up an age category and had her first competitive turning target shoot and also achieved a personal best swim.

Alex Lawson also moved up an age category but did not let this hold him back and was placed 6th boy. 

Finally Jess Morris, although injured still managed to compete in both the shoot and swim.

Roll on the 2nd event in the series when we have more members taking part.
