Save the Children to host Australia’s first ever quadrathlon in May 2014.
Save the Children will hold Australia’s first ever quadrathlon in the Murray River region in May, combining traditional triathlon events of running, swimming and cycling with a 26 km paddle down the Murray River. About 400 people are expected to take part in the inaugural event, ranging from amateurs to some of the best triathletes and multi-sport athletes in Australia.
“Save the Children is delighted to host the Murray Quad, which offers a fantastic opportunity for athletes and amateurs to compete together while raising vital funds to support and protect children around the world,” said Brett Long, Save the Children’s Adventure Events Manager.
“It will be a gruelling event comprising a range of different skills over a very long period of time. It’s also a great team building event, with relay teams with up to eight people allowed.
“Competitors will be able to draw added inspiration from Save the Children’s work helping vulnerable children across every state in Australia and in more than 100 countries, including the Philippines for the response to Typhoon Haiyan, and the Middle East for the Syrian Refugee Crisis.”
The race will start at the Yarrawonga Rowing Club with a 3km swim on Lake Mulwala, before winding its way through the countryside to Cobram and finishing in Tocumwal on the Murray River.
The running leg will be 20kms and the ride 80kms for a total distance of 129kms, making the Murray Quad the longest quadrathlon event in the world!
The Murray Quad was initially founded by Yarrawonga-Mulwala Canoeing Club and Canoeing Victoria, who fully support Save the Children’s vision of making this a highlight of the Australian multi-sports calendar.
“We’d like to thank Canoeing Victoria for their support to date and look forward to working with them to ensure the event reaches its full potential over the years ahead.
Registrations will open in late January.

It was with great sadness today I heard of the death of Ruth Fletcher, I had sent her a Christmas Card, inviting her to our World Championships in Brigg next year, I felt sure she would take on the Challenge again! Many of you may remember Ruth as a very enthusiastic Veteran Quadrathlete in our 2008 GB Team at World Championships in CZ. Stuart Dixon bought her house after her death and he very kindly informed me …. ‘Ruth passed away in the summer of 2011, I never knew her but we bought her house last year and from all accounts she was well respected and a lovely lady’….. So Very True!
He sent me this Newspaper Report June 2011
Dr Fletcher, an ex-world quadrathlon champion, surfaced unconscious from a dive in the North Sea on Sunday. She was pronounced dead moments after she arrived at hospital. Shocked friends and colleagues are coming to terms with their loss. They described Dr Fletcher, 60, as a “keen sportswoman” and “experienced diver”. A member of many local clubs, she was well-liked by all who knew her.
Dr Andy Brittlebank, chair of Hexham Canoe Club, where Dr Fletcher was a long-term member, said: ”My abiding memory of Ruth will be always hearing her – usually her laugh – before you saw her. She was an incredibly enthusiastic and energetic person, full of life and joie de vivre. She threw herself fully into everything she did and really made the most of life.”
She joined the canoe club more than 15 years ago when she took up kayaking as training for her quadrathlon competitions. She was already running, cycling and swimming at that time. A very keen sportswoman, Dr Fletcher achieved national success at ultra-running and off-road triathlon. In 1997, she won the World Veteran Masters title at the World Quadrathlon Championships in Ibiza, and also at The Worlds in CZ 2008. She was also a former North East fell running champion and an ex-Scottish 100k title holder, as well as a member of Hexham Canoe Club, Tynedale Harriers and Tyne Triathlon Club.
She had studied medical sciences at Girton College, Cambridge, completing her medical training at Newcastle University Medical School before working as a clinical medical officer for child health and family planning in Northumberland and Newcastle.
She became the clinical medical officer at Prudhoe hospital in 1980, and in 1990 joined the HSE as an employment medical officer, medical inspector and consultant occupational physician. She also became a member of the Faculty of Occupational Physicians, and was HSE approved to give medical examinations to her fellow divers. She was also an enthusiastic and experienced diver, who had completed numerous courses including open water and rescue diving, and had taken part in more than 90 dives.
Dr Fletcher, was an inspirational person, and her life seems to have been full of hard work, achievement and service to her local community as well as being a very enthusiastic athlete …. with the biggest laugh ever!
I know many of us will remember her, especially our GB Team manager at the time ‘Paul Newman’ I remember him telling Helen Parkinson (2007/8 World Champ) and myself he had a ‘secret weapon to enhance add to our GB Squad’ and how right he was … she stole the hearts of us all that year.
She was also a great Friend of our Quadrathlon God farther the late Eric Hatliff, both were part of the very first GB Quad Team and the reason Quadrathlon arrived in GB! Eric Hatliff, the founding father of Quadrathlon in Britain, known as the Quad Father, sadly died in April 2007 at the age of 75. Eric inspired many athletes including Ruth to participate in the sport of Quadrathlon where they both raced at many Championship Races.

Another fitting Tribute to Ruth
I have been getting lots of emails ….. and YES it is TRUE!!! On behalf of Lincsquad the BQA would like to confirm we are holding the WORLD QUADRATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2014.

In addition to the traditional Quadrathlon races, there will be cross-races with MTB from next year. The WQF welcomes this initiative by the organizer, as the diversity of the athlete is not only increased, but it will hopefully attract multisport athletes too.
The Overall and Age-Group winners will win the elaborate crystal globe, but new for 2014 the top three finishers overall and in age groups additionally get high quality medals. This should create a further incentive and competition for places.
The WQF Series
RACE 1- 3rd May Ibiza – on the Spanish island. It will be the European Championships (Middle Distance). Ibiza offers are well suited to a small training camp, over a long weekend. The organizer also organizes good and affordable accommodations, and kayaks are usually borrowed.

8. Manvers Waterfront Boatclub have affiliated for 2014
Race Affiliation and BQA Membership is to remain the same for 2014 – £15
BQA Insurance also remains the same- Cost per athlete – £1.50 this also applies to Team members.
World Cup Affiliation
The BQA pay 100 euros each year to affiliate to World Quadrathlon Federation
in 2013 on top of our fee, the BQA paid the 50 euros to cover the World Cup
Fees for GB Races that were part of the World Series – The Bomber and Awesome Foursome.
Due to lack of members in 2013 and the consequential drop in income the BQA has to reduce its expenditure to remain stable. However the BQA have agreed to pay the WQF fee of 100 euros, but cannot afford to pay the World Cup Fees for the race organizers in 2014. So if race organizers wish to retain WQF World Cup Status they will have to pay the 50 euros fee themselves. If circumstances change the BQA will reconsider its decision.
Lincsquad and Shoreline Pursuits have both agreed to pay the WC Fee for 2014.
BQA Rules – BTF and World Cup Rules
At Shrewsbury Quadrathlon (which ran on the back of a Triathlon under BTF Rules) we had a Quadrathlete disqualified for dropping litter (a gel wrapper) we were also told we had to keep our Tri suits Zipped up as this is also a DQ offence.
The BQA should recognize the principal behind this issue rather than risk getting involved in the detail of the this particular incident. We will add the following to our rules. These can be found on the BQA website.
‘The BQA would like to remind Quadrathletes that when a Quadrathlon is run in parallel to a Triathlon, the BTF Rules apply to the whole race’.
Race Affiliation Co-ordinator – Mark Pryor
Thank-you to Mark for taking on this role for 2014.
At the beginning of 2014 he will send out The Race Affiliation pack to our BQA Race organisers containing,
1. Race Agreement Contract,
2. Affiliation Form,
3. Risk Assessment Form,
4. Race Calendar 2014.
The contract will include: fixing a date, risk assessments, insurance, first aid cover, marshals and trophy requirements. This worked very well in 2012/13 and we have had no clashes of dates.
GB Team Coordinator – Ian Smith
A Big Thank-you to Ian Smith who has taken on a new role as GB Team Coordinator.
Ian has travelled to European World Cup races over the past couple of years and he also raced at most of our British Quadrathlons. He will be able to give some help and guidance to members that want to go to WQF races in Europe, part of his role will be to bring together quadrathletes who wish to race in Europe. Ian will also be able to offer guidance on the interpretation of the GB selection criteria, and will be looking at putting together a strong enthusiastic GB team for the World Championships in Brigg. Please feel free to email Ian if you are interested in racing in WQF races .
His email is on our contacts page.
WQF Representative – Steve Hook
The BQA would like to thank Steve who has been the GB Team manager for the last few years, he is now standing down from this role, but he is continuing to support Quadrathlon as vice chairman of the WQF committee. This will be a very important year for us, as GB are to host the World Championships for the very first time, I am quite sure Lincsquad will put on a superb event and it will live up to the expectations of the WQF.
The World Quadrathlon Federation is the international sport governing body for Quadrathlon. It was established in 1990 by Sergio Ferrero, in 1997 it was developed under the guidance of Czech’s Václav Marek as the European Quadrathlon Federation. Then in 2001 converted to the WQF. Stefan Teichert is the General Secretary/Treasurer and the main point of contact.
The biggest Quadrathlon communities are currently present in Czech Republic, Great Britain and Germany.

3.May.14 Ibiza, Spain – Middle Distance EUROPEAN Championships
25.May.14 Brigg Bomber, GB – Middle Distance WORLD Championships

‘Never Stop the Adventure’ Jean Ashley
As another race season draws to a close and those Winter nights descend it is time to reflect on our past season and plan/ train for the next.
The National Trophy Series kicked off this year with the Brigg Bomber in May. The race was to host the National Championships, European Championships and was also a World Cup Race [so it had a lot at stake]. Steve Clark was the overall winner [this was to be Steve’s only Quad this year as he concentrated on Kona Ironman with Phil Westoby coming second and Adam Norfolk taking third. Sharon Colley [who was too destined to dominate the Ladies Quad scene this season] was the first lady home, with Lisa Dunne coming home second. A big thanks must be said to the Lincsquad team who organised a quality race worthy of its championship status.
Unfortunately the second planned Quad race on the Isle of Wight had to be cancelled due to lack of numbers; a shame as we heard that it was a fantastic race last year. This meant that the second race of the year would be the sprint Off Road Quad at Box End. Box End was also suffering from reduced numbers and the race had to be re-structured to make it a viable proposition. At the race Sharon Colley was to pick up her second win of the season, with Jean Ashley coming second. In the men’s race Adam Norfolk came first with Steve King taking second.
The Shrewsbury Sprint Quad in only its second season was to be a very popular race with a good turn out of athletes [many of them trying the sport for the first time]. At least this year the river was slower and warmer then last years conditions. Steve King was the fist male across the line with Nigel Unwin coming in second. Sharon Colley took her third straight win to sow up the ladies National Trophy Series, with Jean in second place.
The fourth race of the year was that extreme event, the Fabian 4, which this year was blessed with much kinder weather then last years storm. This is a very hard race and not for the faint hearted. Adam Norfolk showed his strength and stamina by taking first position, with Ian Smith coming second. The first lady [surprisingly, not Sharon as she did not enter] was Caroline Dallimore, with Caroline Wilson coming second.
The fifth and last race in the trophy Series was the Awsome4some held in Bude, which was also our second World Cup Race to be held in the UK this year. This is another hard race with a very testing sea swim and near vertical bike route straight from the word go. Ian Smith was to triumph on the day and also confirmed himself the winner of the Men’s National Trophy Series 2013. Nigel Unwin took another well deserved second place and Jess Lynes was the first and only lady to take up this challenging race.
This year we only had 2 GB athletes at the World Championships at Ratscher-GBR. However, small though our numbers were, both athletes came back with medals. Ian Smith came 6th overall and took 1st [gold] place in V50 and Keith Longney came 11th and took Bronze in the V50 category. Congratulations to both athletes for doing a great job representing the BQA.
This year the BQA has seen a slump in personal membership, but a large increase in the numbers signing up to our Face book page! Membership fee’s and race affiliation are the BQA’s only source of income! If we do not have the membership we will not be able to function! There will be no National Trophy series and no National Body and no race insurance for some event organisers! If the sport of Quadrathlon is going to continue in its present form then we need your support! Please become a member in 2014 by downloading the form from the BQA website and it will only cost you £15.00.
The fate of the BQA and Quadrathlon in the UK rests in your hands!
Just to remind you that you need to be a member of the BQA to qualify for the National Trophy series.
This is my last year as Chairman as I will be stepping down for a new person to take the helm [if you feel you can take on the roll then please let Jean know]. Jean Ashley will continue to handle the day to day running of the BQA. We all owe a big thanks to Jean and her family as they are the backbone of the BQA, without their input we would not exist. I would also like to thank all the event organisers and their teams for all their hard work putting on some extremely varied and brilliant races this year.
I wish you all best in your future Quadrathlon Seasons!
