2012 Fabian4 Conwy Mountain Triathlon

Congratulations to all that braved the weather and took part in the Fabian4 Mountain Triathlon. It was a new race in our Quadrathlon Calendar for 2012, and run by group of athletes in the Conwy Valley who have formed themselves into a club.

I have had a note from Mark Pryor (BQA Chairman) saying what a fantastic and well organised race it was, a very hard race in fairly harsh weather, but it made it more enjoyable. It was well planned and organised by a team of professional volunteers that new their stuff. Well done to Ellie Sailsbury and her Team, for putting on an excellent race.

Congratulations to Winner Ian Smith 3.22.16, followed by Steve King in 2nd 3.26.35 and Michael Mason in 3rd 3.27.31.

Well done to the Ladies 1st Rebecca Cook 4.34.53, 2nd Alex Durran 4.41.48, 3rd Caroline Willson 5.30.22

First team ‘Wedgies’ Stephen Jones, Marc Reeves, and Amanda Wilde 3.28.14 in 4th overall place.

The race involved an open estuary 13k kayak leg (with tide), followed by a c.12 -16k fell run & finishing with a c.15k MTB leg. The Kayak leg start is at Morfa Conwy, & the event centre & Run/MTB transition are at Nant Conwy Rugby Club (which has excellent facilities), near Trefriw.

This is great News for Quadrathlon and its great to have this new race affiliated to the BQA, in this very picturesque Conwy Valley, North Wales. We look forward to having it in our callender next season.
