On Behalf of the BQA I Just wanted to say a Huge Thank You ‘Chester Tri’ and Chester Canoe Club for an Amazing ‘Deva Divas Quadrathlon today! We certainly shared ‘The Quad Passion’ they all just Loved it, as 30 of them took to the water, 25 of them being first timers! The atmosphere was brilliant the camaraderie and racing superb, these girls just had the Best day Ever!
A massive thanks to my Triathlon club ‘Chester’ who agreed to add the Quad to Ladies only Deva Divas, thanks to the all those who prepared the race venue and course, safety and technical teams, all marshals across 4, cake makers, commentators ‘with wonderful banter’, and the list goes on and on! Special mention to our Race director Sally Napthen who held it all together, and for agreeing to add that extra discipline!
A Huge thanks also, to my Chester Canoe Club for organizing the 12 week canoe coaching course, half of them couldn’t paddle at the start, but by race day every single one of the girls paddled a K1! True commitment from the girls and superb coaching produced rewarding results!
As always I’m so proud to be part of these 2 wonderful clubs, it was so good too see our members giving so much back and encouraging every single athlete along the way … in True Quadrathlon Style!
Also a Big Thanks to my friend Antony Dala for carving our Amazing Trophy!
As the organizer this time, I wanted a race report from one of our competitors, so Jacqueline Davies is doing one for us very soon along, with the full results … watch this space!
