Harlech Triathlon

The Loneliness of a Not Very Long Distance RunnerThe Harlech triathlon celebrates its 10th year this Sunday the 15th of May 2011. We always have some of the entrants staying with us here on the farm. And they always say what a fantastic event it is. So, yes, I’ve finally got round to filling in the entry form. But no, I haven’t done a lot of training.

But anyway the event comprises a 400m swim in Harlech swimming pool followed by a 28k cycle from Harlech to the Wayside pub near Barmouth and back before finishing with a 6.5k run along the beach and up the very steep hill to the finish line at Harlech castle. It’ll be fine I’m sure. (Ohh nooo) http://www.harlechtri-entries.org.uk/

I did it. 2hrs 0mins and 40seconds. Not a particularly impressive time but at least I finished. It was a great day, and I enjoyed it very much.  A little less chatting along the way next time perhaps and we’ll see if I can squeeze under the 2hr mark.
