Triathlon Championships 27 March 2022
We had five boys competing for the Quorn and Area 6 at the Triathlon championships in the mini, junior and open boys classes. 
Josh Duncombe competed in the open boys. He shot 880 (4th best shoot in the class), and achieved personal bests in both the run and swim, finishing just inside the top 20. 
Toby and Jacob Duncombe have just moved up to juniors. Toby shot a fantastic 920 (9th best shoot score in his class), and had a run personal best. Jacob had a very good 820 shoot, a super speedy run, and a swim personal best. Both Toby and Jacob finished in the top 30. 
Oscar Pickering and Ben England competed in the mini boys. Oscar shot 920 (6th best shoot score), again an excellent score under the champs pressure, and achieved personal bests in both run and swim to finish 12th. Ben England achieved personal bests in all three phases (4th best swim), and finished 16th. 
Thank you for being such fantastic representatives for the Quorn in some very competitive classes.

First to go for the team’s first round was Charlie, who got an unfortunate 4 faults at the last fence, followed by Grace who had a clear round. Next to go was Molly, who also got a clear round, then Josh who also had an unfortunate 4 faults at the last fence. 

Next it was the jump off for Grace and Molly who got through to the next round through their clears. Grace came 1st with a super fast time of 29 seconds, and Molly came 7th with 8 faults and a fast time of 31 seconds. 

Lola rode individually with a clear round and an unlucky 4 in the jump off to finish in 6th place individually. 

The course was challenging with tight turns and lots of doubles and a huge amount of competitors . All riders were very smart representing the QUORN well done to all and thanks to Liz and Rachael for the support and course walk.

Report from QHPC Triathlon 23 January 2022

Qualifier for the National Triathlon Championships

A really fantastic turn out for the Quorn/Area 6 qualifier January 2022, with pony club members travelling from all over resulting in some very competitive section. A really fantastic turn out of Quornies, and great to see some new starters joining.

In the Open Boys section, both Josh Duncombe and Joel Harby qualify for the triathlon championships in March, with Josh coming 1st with best run and shoot and Joel third with best swim.

A record number of Open girls competitors made for a tough qualifier section. Jade England qualifies for championships coming second, Brooke England 5th and Georgie Daynes 6th. Some fantastic super quick runs from Georgie and Liv, and our Quorn open girls team looking really strong going into the tetrathlon season, and placing second overall.

In the Junior Boys section, Jacob Duncombe was 4th with an amazing 1500m run of 5.08 despite a slight diversion, with Toby Duncombe close behind in 5th. Both were highest placed Area 6 and qualify for championships. Sam Daynes did a great first junior class, finishing 6th. All three were part of the winning team in this class.

No quornies in the junior girls section.

Minimum boys, Oscar Pickering won the class with best shoot, and Ben England was 4th with best swim. Both qualify for the championships, and their mixed team was second.

In the minimus girls, Mali Willmott, Bobbie Roberts and Emilia Woods did great first competition, with Mali best Quorn and just outside the individual rosettes. Their team was 4th.

In the mini mini girls, Rose Mee also did a great first competition, with a speedy run, and her team came first.

Last but not least, our bean bag competitors, Ben Woods was best Quorn in the triathlon section, with a great throw score, and his team was 3rd.

In the biathlon section, Sebastian Barsby was second, and super efforts from Belle Barsby and River Roberts. Their team was third.

Huge thank you to all the many helpers and volunteers on a very busy day, and the parents for all their support.

A really fantastic turn out of Quornies. Seven Quornies through to the tri champs is probably a record – well done everyone!

National Schools Equestrian Association Eventers Challenge Championship at Hickstead 27/08/20

A wonderful day at Hickstead yesterday for QHPC members, Liv,Jade & Brooke. They qualified for the Eventers Challenge National Championship 100cm class at Hickstead by winning the qualifier back in November, with a team of 3 only (same rules as pony club, teams of 3-4, with top 3 scores to count), where all three girls were clear. In the qualifier, Liv was closest to the optimum time, and also qualified as an individual. The Championship was postponed to yesterday, so the long trek to Hickstead was made, again just with the three team members which meant no discard scores. A cleverly built and very technical course meant lots of issues – three teams eliminated, and only 3 riders in the individual section went clear. Liv Crawley delivered a flawless double clear 3/10ths of a second from the optimum time and proved unbeatable, becoming the Individual National Champion. Jade followed with a clear, and just one unlucky pole for Brooke, all three fast and close to optimum time, securing a team win as well, and the team taking the National Champions title. Lots of lovely feedback from the organisers about how well they rode, especially when the course had had so many problems. Great for our open girls tetrathlon team to be competing, and absolutely showed that all the tetrathlon experience of technical cross country fences pays off!
