MBH Penzance Triathlon 2012- Feedback

120 slots for Penzance Triathlon and 120 take part on the day ? that is some attendance record! Being the first triathlon of the year in Cornwall there was a waiting list to enter and about 20 were disappointed.

There was such a great atmosphere surrounding the whole event throughout the day. This is the first race in the new Cornwall Triathlon Series consisting of ten events throughout the county.

This is the sixth year that Mounts Bay Harriers? Penzance Triathlon has taken place and it just goes from strength to strength. The 400 metre pool swim at Penzance Leisure Centre, followed by the 15.5 mile bike ride taking in the scenery around Newbridge, St Just, Kelynack, Chapel Carn Brea, Crows-an-wra, Catchall, Drift and Buryas Bridge before returning to the transition area at the One Stop Shop Council car park at Penzance and undertaking the 4 mile run around Heamoor was what each competitor had to complete before crossing the finish line.

The 90 marshals (90:120 marshal to competitor ratio) made sure that the route was well marked out for all competitors and the red flags being waved at strategic points ensured that the traffic was slowed down enough to ensure the safe passage of both cyclists and runners. We even had a motorbike marshal making sure that anyone who had a puncture in the middle of nowhere was quickly recovered – I think no.55 Ben Matthews was very grateful when she turned up!? Many thanks to all who turned up to help out from both Mounts Bay Harriers and other clubs. Thanks also to Brandon Tool Hire at Long Rock for supplying and erecting the racking and barriers on Easter Saturday and taking it away again on Easter Sunday.

Again the weather was very kind to us although it was very misty out St Just way which prevented seeing the absolutely fantastic views out towards Long Ships Lighthouse.

At the finish line all competitors were presented with a medal, banana and water which, together with their goody bag consisting of a technical t-shirt, race belt, packet of seeds, water, hot cross bun, cr?me egg, shower gel?and sweets, meant that they received value for their entry fee!

Special mention should be made of the 27 novices who took part today. This was either their first or second triathlon and they all done absolutely brilliantly! There were two Mounts Bay Harriers in this category, Gary Schofield, who picked up second male novice and Eve Lay who went away with third female novice.

The first Mounts Bay Harrier home was Kyle Kearey in fourth place followed by seventh placed Matt Lawless ? whose wife is expecting her baby any day and we all thought it was going to be on Easter Sunday!? Carol Julian was first female Harrier home.

This year there were a few trade stands – Sponsors of the Cornwall Triathlon Series, USN (www.usn.co.uk ), brought a trailer and handed out samples; Swim Supplies, Redruth?(www.swimsupplies.co.uk ) had a stand; Carrick Leisure was there for anyone who wanted to sign up for any other events in the series www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=29635 ; Vivobarefoot (www.vivobarefoot.com/uk ) showed samples of their shoes and had video analysis available.

Also Vivobarefoot sponsored some of the prizes:
1st place male and female overall – (each) Pair of Vivobarefoot shoes of their choice. Plus a private 2 hour technique and injury assessment/coaching clinic with The Barefoot Academy (Leah Katia, Injury Specialist and Jonno Gibbins, Barefoot Coach (www.thebarefootacademy.com ). Value of approx ?220 each
1st male and female in each age group category – ?45 off voucher for a group day injury and technique clinic with The Barefoot Academy (normal price is ?95 each for the day) Plus a ?20 Trizone (www.trizonestore.co.uk ) voucher each.

Because of the way in which a pool-based triathlon is timed, no-one knows who the winner is until the final results have been produced. There were some names bandied about before the event with the prime suspect, Neil Eddy of Cyclelogic, actually taking first place nearly three minutes ahead of second placed Gareth Smith of Camel Valley Cycle & Triathlon Club.

One prize per person meant that the prizes were spread over a greater number of people so an overall winner cannot win an age group prize:
