Bowood triathlon race report

Bowood triathlon inviting lake with water temps at 8am of 19c+ I was off at 3pm so probably a couple of degrees warmer.

The bloomin windy rolling bike course (wind seems to follow me this year in race !) Then an undulating run on mixed terrain with temples, waterfalls, lake views and gardens to please the eye & take the mind off the effort !

This course rivals Blenheim but tops it as local, better value and less commercial. Plus many of the marshal,know my name ams shouted encouragement or friendly abuse as I passed by.

I highly recommend it ๐Ÿ™‚ well organised, fantastic marshals superb setting and location. I will be back next year for sure when no doubt it will be bigger and better.

Scores in the doors from today effort = 1:42:00 gave me 2nd/ 7 in age group. Better than my Blenheim best time by 10 minutes. Sprint distance 750m swim, 459m run uphill to T1, 51:26 bike, 30:19 run

Long day as helped answer questions at registration from 7:30am to my own race start at 3:15pm

Good training session. Went on old road bike as not sure about cattle grids, next year on Felt.

What a great way to finish off Juneathon ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to Janathon but will try and blog training and races regularly before then.

Well done to all who participated in Juneathon

Was looking for this little fella in the lake but no such luck !


Goodbye Juneathon ๐Ÿ™‚ been great being part of it.



  1. Hi Zoe, just letting you know that I`ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. There are certain requirements for this as you`ll see on my most recent post.

    Thank you for your training inspiration!

    • Thank you so much for the nomination ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I’m happy to know that some people read my blog posts.
      I will follow the 7 steps and display the award, this will be next week as I’m off for a relay race then to stay with my mother-in-law but hope to run along the seafront. This will give me time to chose my award recipients.
      Great blog world idea to highlight, support & share

      • It must be the heat ! Like us WP not used to high summer temps !
        Last week work took over so not had chance to nominate but will get into it soon as I also have a race report & product test to write up.

    • did you get my first reply ? seems wordpress had a wobble.
      Thank you so much for nomination ๐Ÿ™‚
      I will follow the steps and add the award next week as away for long weekend by the seaside
      Glad you have been reading and commenting on my crazy packed life.
